Mozambique is located on the southeastern coast of Africa and is bordered by Tanzania to the north, South Africa and Swaziland 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 and its coastline on the Indian Ocean is a diving and snorkeling destination for avid lovers of coral islands and reefs, as well as beautiful marine life.
GMI’s connection to Mozambique began as an extension of GMI’s ministry in Malawi. The work is in its early stages and we look forward to seeing it grow now that Kennedy and Sofia Simtowe have been granted the necessary paperwork to move to Mozambique and are now living there on a permanent basis.
GMI already has preaching points established in the northern provinces between Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. In 2015 Kennedy conducted a trip visiting all the preaching points and many made professions of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
The constitution for the Grace Church of Mozambique has been completed, which is always a big step in the beginning of a new work in a new country.
