ADRA Provides Aid for Flood Victims in Mozambique; and other world news | Adventist news

Proverbs 3:27 says: "Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in your power to act."

Here is the news of hope and healing from the Seventh-day Adventist Church community:

In Mozambique, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) continues to help affected families. Cyclone Eloise devastated the region when it made landfall on January 23. It destroyed thousands of homes and agricultural produce due to heavy rains and floods. In response, ADRA deployed relief aid teams in different districts. ADRA's Lean Season Assistance Project in partnership with the World Food Program provides farmers with critical food assistance. According to David Masinde, country director of ADRA Mozambique, they coordinate with the local Seventh-day Adventist churches and other partners to participate in a rapid needs assessment in the area.

In the Leeward Islands of the West Indies, the Adventist philosophy of education and students' holistic development are highlighted. The Seventh-day Adventist school in St. Eustatius had incorporated agriculture to its curriculum, and when the school shifted to online-learning due to the pandemic, students were given seeds to plant at home and asked to document their observations daily. The curriculum focuses on tools and their proper use, soil preparation, seeds planting, irrigation, plant care, and recognizing when fruits are ready to harvest. It aims to teach a greater appreciation for agriculture, encouraging the students to grow their own nutritious foods.

Meanwhile, in the Western Australian Conference, Adventist young people joined the Youth and Student Literature Evangelism program in January. The young evangelists distributed more than 1,700 books; 1,000 of which were copies of Steps to Christ. The program's primary purpose is to engage young people in discipleship and sharing their faith.
