The church in Mozambique oversees the Nhaloi Hospital, the Inhamachafo Clinic and the Primary School. The Inhamachafo Evangelists Training School, started by missionaries, is still in operation. Currently, the post-secondary theological seminary in Beira is closed due to the lack of financial support to cover the expenses with teachers and internal students. The country has also suffered several natural disasters in recent years – drought, floods and cyclones ̶ causing significant loss and hardship.
OUTREACH TO THE WORLD
The conference has begun work in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) and Angola. FMC’s work in Eswatini was going well until the beginning of Covid-19 in 2020. The missionary who was in Eswatini, António Muti, had to return to Mozambique last year.
Three of the five missionaries who arrived in South Africa in 1885 traveled northward to Mozambique. G. Harry Agnew, one of them, built the first Free Methodist chapel in Africa.
Following the country’s independence in 1975, a Marxist state developed. All Free Methodist medical work was nationalized and private schools closed. Missionaries were withdrawn from the country. The church, however, was strong and has carried on in spite of oppression.
