Afrika Wa Yesu, based in Inhaminga, Mozambique, welcomes you!
Founders Rod & Ellie Hein, ministering in Mozambique since 1981, starting Afrika wa Yesu Bible School under a tree in the remote Inhaminga region of central Mozambique. The vision to reach Mozambique for Christ has grown phenomenally and continues to increase.
We now have two Spirit empowered Bible Schools in both Inhaminga and Nacala, where we also have a Vocational Centre, equipping and training men in basic work skills. Working together as a powerful team of Mozambican and international missionaries, we are reaching souls through evangelism and church planting.
Teaching and training Mozambican pastors and leaders to reach their own nation is a vital purpose of this ministry. Business Skills Training with carpentry is offered at Nacala Vocational Training School.
Afrika wa Yesu is a team-focused ministry, running in the strength and joy that unity brings. While soul winning is our primary purpose, we also run a dental clinic with a mobile unit reaching into the villages where the only dentist is the witch doctor.
We want this site not only to tell you about us and the African field, but also to help you have a deeper relationship with Jesus. If you've never given your heart to Jesus, or if you desire to have a more real and meaningful relationship with Him, we invite you to look around our website and experience Him for yourself…once you meet Him, your life will never be the same again. God loves you and has a plan for you!
