A Mission within a Mission

Next week we take a US team up to Chimoio, Moz, where they will work at an orphanage and help with the construction of the Mercy Air/SAM ministries base. We will be camping for the week!


There is a Mozambican guy named Bero who works up there, who was badly burned as a child during the war. The burn damage is great but with corrective surgery he can be set free physically like never before. A surgeon in SA has agreed to do the surgery for free, and this is scheduled for three days after we return from Moz.


As we are taking two aircraft and the team are leaving quite a bit of stuff up there, we have room on the return flight for him. This will save him about three days travel, a whole bunch of inconvenience, and money. He will also be able to stay with us at Mercy Air for part of his recovery period.

You can read some more about Bero's story on Lynn Lagore's blog at:
