Mountain Sky Conference has had a relationship with the East Angola Conference of the United Methodist Church since 2003. Churches and individuals have played an active role in supporting pastors and the agricultural programs at Quessua Methodist Mission. As the holiday season approaches we have the opportunity to offer seeds of hope – literally.
The Angola Advocacy team invites you to consider a Christmas Eve offering that will benefit either pastors or the agricultural programs of Quessua Methodist Mission. The advocacy team will provide short videos, video greetings from our missionaries in Angola, stories, or sermon notes/stories to help you promote these important ministries. These will be available on the conference website for your use.
Meet Pastor Neto Vieira Zua,
who pastors Daniel Zandango United Methodist Church. Pastor Zua is also a small-scale farmer. The supplement salary has helped him increase his farm by buying 5 hectares of land so that he now has 8 hectares, which he farms with his wife to grow sweet potatoes, beans, and cassava. They also raise goats and sheep. The salary from Mountain Sky Conference has enabled him to provide school supplies and medicine for his children. He sends his greetings and says “Your generosity is not in vain. Receive tenfold from the almighty God.”
Your contribution to support pastors offers hope and support to pastors in small villages offering the love of Christ. Use Advance # 3021453 to support pastors in Angola.
