This multi-purpose building is the last major component to fully launch the planned ministry and outreach of the Pemba Ministry Center.
DESCRIPTION: The Pemba Ministry Center is strategically located in proximity to Mozambique’s most unreached areas. It is a strategic component of all planned ministries in northern Mozambique.
BENEFITS: This building will be home to the Oral Learners Bible Institute, leadership training events, resource and curriculum development, and much more. When completed, this new Assemblies of God footprint will effectively lend itself to leading these lost communities to an understanding that they can have eternal life by placing their trust in Jesus Christ. Regular outreach is already underway in the Muslim village of Murrebue, and a church has been planted and built in the community of Sicura.

Nice to hear from you. We are doing well and just found out a few hours ago that our visas are processed and we have the green light to travel back to Pemba in the next few weeks. We are looking at flights and should know soon our departure dates.
As far as the Ministry Center project I would like to get back and see first hand what was done while we were gone. Then I will be able to give you a better idea of where we are at, what it will cost to finish it out, and so forth. Building materials have increased in price due to the unstable situation in our province, but Pemba still remains a relatively safe place to be. Once we arrive I will take photos and videos of where we are with the construction so you will be able to see and share with Builder’s partners.
I have approximately $7,000 in our account set aside for this project as a result of our itineration.
We are doing tabs in Mozambique. Toby Magill heads up this project for Mozambique so he would have more information on this. He is in the process of building a tab factory down in Maputo. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, he can help you out. We are trying to make a plan to do some tabs up north, but it is difficult because of transport.
Thanks again for writing! I appreciate all that you do. I will be in touch the beginning of April with more details about the ministry center project.
Have a great day!

Joel Charest made this awesome bamboo shade that will be used as his classroom for the sports outreach his family holds at their home in Mozambique!

Up to 300 Muslim children eagerly flock to the property where a ministry center is currently underway. Every week, the children arrive to play soccer, then they stay for juice and a lesson from the Bible taught by AGWM missionaries, Joel and Adrienne Charest!
This is what we call a “WIN!”
The Charest family holds the soccer outreach every Saturday. Builders International has already helped complete construction on a mission home on the property. The multipurpose ministry center is now underway, which is the final major component of the site.
“WINS” are continually taking place across the globe! We’d love for you to join the fun!

The work is continuing! The ministry center is a project that you can go to work or send your financial help so the work can continue. This project is going to be a huge blessing to the local and national church. Click on the GIVE tab/button at the top of this page.

The missionary house is nearing completion! That means the Charest family will finally be able to move in. You can help this happen sooner than later. A donation for the purchase of materials will make the most difference the quickest but joining a team and helping with the completion of the construction is another way to really make a difference. Please contact Builders International for more details.

The foundation is in and the Ministry Center is ready to have the floor poured. You can help by going and helping with the construction or by donating. Please contact Builders International for info.
