MOZAMBIQUE – HLAULEKA MUMPSWA
By 2008, Sybil had already established over 100 Kids Clubs in Chokwe, Mozambique with over 1,000 children being exposed to God’s word. Sybil also had a dream of building a preschool that would serve a student body of one-half paying children and one-half orphaned and/or vulnerable children. Being acutely aware of the many abandoned children in Chokwe, Sybil had already personally taken three girls into her own home. She said she believed the children in Mozambique were “diamonds in the dust.” She shared her dream of a preschool with Lucinda McCay who was in Chokwe on a CSPC short-term mission trip. Lucinda brought Sybil’s dream back to the Global Mission Group and a new effort to help Sybil began. The name of Sybil’s ministry – Hlauleka Mumpswa – means “Be ye holy young person” (Leviticus 19:2).
Sybil’s original dream expanded in 2012 when the local government not only gave permission, but greatly encouraged, the opening of a primary private Christian school on the same property. Not only is the school providing empowerment through education, but it has also become a safe and thriving place for orphans and vulnerable children.
- For Sybil and her family that they may enjoy good health.
- For the funds to start the new two-story school building. They are ready to take a step of faith towards this goal.
- For registration to go well for an English class that will start next year so that more students can begin studying all their subjects in English.
