In 2011, Grace Center adopted a village called Chuiba in Mozambique, in partnership with Iris Global. Chuiba is a predominately muslim village but there about about 50 or so believers now, including the village chief! To date, Grace Center has provided a well for the village, helped to build two buildings that serve as a church and a preschool and established a daily feeding program for about 150 children. Since adopting the village, Grace Center has taken multiple trips to build relationships, encourage leadership and nurture cultural exchange.
Each year trips to Chuiba have grown as we continue to build relationships, encourage leadership and nurture cultural exchange.
We have a team visiting our adopted village now! They are connecting with the leaders of the church and school we support, ministering to the children in our village, growing our relationships with villagers and building bridges between Grace Center and our family across the world.
