Mozambique is located on the southeastern coast of Africa and is bordered by Tanzania to the north, South Africa and Eswatini to the south, Zimbabwe to the west, and Zambia and Malawi to the northwest.
Mozambique is made up mainly of coastal lowlands, rising toward the west to a plateau ranging from 500 to 2,000 ft above sea level and on the western border to a higher plateau (6,000 to 8,000 ft), with mountains in the north reaching a height of over 8,000 ft. The highest mountains are Namuli (7,936 ft), Binga (7,992 ft) on the Zimbabwean border, and Serra Zuira (7,306 ft) in Sofala Province. Mozambique’s capital is Maputo located on the Indian Ocean in the southern part of the country.
GMI’s connection to Mozambique began as an extension of GMI’s ministry in Malawi. GMI team members, the late Kennedy Simtowe and his wife Sophia, took several trips to Mozambique in the 2010s, even living in the city of Tete for a time. Currently, the effort to further develop a GMI-affiliated ministry in Mozambique is driven by GMI team members Givemore and Sylvia Nyakambiri. They will be joined by their GMI coworkers, Brian and Gloria Abranovich. They will target the area in and around the city of Chimoio.
