Changing our website / blog

The post below was made to our initial website/blog in order to reference people to this one.  Please do not be confused, this is our new website but in efforts to transition from one to another (and link or reference the two until that transition is very clear) I am republishing it here for those new to our ministry.   Blessings and thanks for tracking with us.

Dear friends,

As many of you know, though perhaps some do not, we are in a phase of ministry transition. For eight years we’ve been ministering in Mozambique, Africa, working in the area of leadership training and development. From the beginning our goal was not to plant ourselves in one permanent location but to minister and work within the local church training their leaders so they might become better equipped to reach their own people for Christ, plant new churches and disciple those who come to know the Lord. We now feel it is time to pass the ministry off to the ministers with whom Dan has been working. In December we will return to Mozambique to finish preparing each group with whom we’ve worked take on Dan’s responsibilities. We will then be transitioning to a new church-planting ministry in Lisbon, Portugal (late July or August 2014). To ease the transition and not abandon those with whom we’ve worked with in Mozambique Dan will continue to make short-term (one week) trips to Mozambique (approximately three times per year for this term). Since our ministry is moving from Mozambique (which is part of the name of this website: mozambiquemessages.com) we felt it wise to change the name of our website. Additionally when we officially move from Mozambique we will no longer be a part of the organization there (Good News For Africa) and so we’ve decided upon a new name for our ministry.

Lusofona is an adjective meaning, “Portuguese speaking.” As we transition out of the ministry in Mozambique (a Portuguese speaking country) and begin to minister in Portugal (obviously Portuguese speaking) we felt it was a fitting description of the work God has called us to – to reach out to those in the Portuguese speaking world – to minister in Portuguese speaking “Lusofona” countries. Thus our new website is https://lusofonaoutreach.wordpress.com. Even with this transition, our sending church will remain the same and we will continue to be accountable to the Elders of 1st Christian Church of Wood River, Il.
