Vanden Bosch

Nearly one billion people worldwide can't study the Word of God because they can’t read. This is especially true in the country of Mozambique, where just 20 percent of the population is considered literate. Mozambique now has one of the fastest growing churches in all of Africa, but due largely to a lack of access to the Scriptures, spiritual growth and discipleship has been severely hampered. In Mozambique, as in many parts of the world, making the Bible available means providing Scriptures in audio form. As director of African operations for Audio Scripture Ministries, Chad oversees audio scripture recording and distribution projects throughout Africa. He travels from his base in Mozambique to new project locations in order to set up recording and distribution programs and train personnel in recording equipment and techniques.

Mission Aviation Fellowship

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is found in the hardest-to-reach locations, where people live isolated from the rest of the world, cut off from the most basic necessities. Highly trained pilots maneuver Cessna and KODIAK aircraft through rugged terrain. And while passengers might hold their breath, MAF pilots skillfully land at short, unimproved airstrips on the sides of mountains, in jungle clearings, or on tropical rivers—to bring medicine and doctors, disaster relief, education, evangelists, Bible translators, food supplies, agriculture and clean water projects, and more.

JRC currently supports a pilot and family serving through MAF.  Due to the sensitive nature of the area they serve, we are unable to post their information online. Please contact the office if you would like more information about the family we support.  For more information about MAF, please click here.

Sew Sew Mission Sisters

Each month a group of talented women who enjoy sewing gather together to make women's hygiene products to be distributed to girls and women in developing countries.  The picture to the left and the following thank you was received after some of their products were distributed:  "I want to share this picture on behalf of the [local] Christian school.  We blessed the 8th grade girls with your wonderful creations of the feminine products.  As you can see from the photo they are glowing!  Thank you from all of them to each of you!"
