Development

Isaiah 61… The foundation of Jesus’ ministry was laid out in Isaiah 61. Jesus has called us to walk as PIONEERS, preaching the GOOD NEWS of the gospel of Jesus to the poor, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, give beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

How we're doing that:

WHITE AS SNOW PROJECT
“White As Snow” began with a passion in Marlene’s heart to rescue girls from the sex-slave trade industry.

Project Details

  • Pioneer61 Coffee Co. – Tete, Mozambique

    The Pioneer61 Coffee Co. is a faith-based, self-sustained, non-profit business. 100% of net proceeds from coffee sales go toward rescuing, equipping and educating orphans, child slaves, widows, prostitutes and sex slaves. By buying a bag of our coffee you will be partnering with us to change the world!

  • WHITE AS SNOW PROJECT – Tete, Mozambique

    “White As Snow” began with a passion in Marlene’s heart to rescue girls from the sex-slave trade industry. While praying one night about going to India to rescue girls in the industry there, God spoke to Marlene and said, “Marlene I’ve given you authority over Tete, go and claim it... the streets are filled with girls who are lonely and broken, go love them!” Marlene then asked the Lord to show her how He saw them so she could see them with His eyes, He simply said, “WHITE AS SNOW.” It broke Marlene for women worldwide who are bound in chains of darkness having to give themselves away just to eat, feed their children and get by day to day. In Tete, the White As Snow project began with one beautiful young lady who was basically forced to sell herself daily to be able to feed her 9 month old baby at home. Now the White As Snow Project has grown into one of the largest parts of our ministry.

    The first door that Jesus opened was for us to hold a bible study weekly in the largest brothel in Tete. The owners of the brothel allowed us to come weekly, lead worship, teach the word of God to the girls, and love on them. We’ve painted the brothel and renamed it “House of Joy” as a prophetic act that Jesus transforms us from the “inside” out and gives us joy amidst the hardest circumstances. This brothel had 38 ladies when we began and after 4 months the majority of the ladies accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Being that only 4 were left in the house we were asked not to come back but we are believing to be invited again to see that brothel completely emptied.

    Marlene had been praying that Jesus would give her an opportunity to rent a room in the middle of all brothels so she could begin a weekly bible study. We now have a room that was previously used as a brothel but is now our "Prayer Room". This is where we have our Bible Study each week and many of the ladies are coming to join in prayer, worship and to study the Word. Many of the ladies have asked Jesus into their lives and transformation has begun in Quachena. We are believing that all the brothels will be closed in Jesus name.

    The heart of White As Snow is to do more than a bible study. Our heart is to see these beautiful women completely set free from the sex trafficking industry so we created White As Snow Designs. At White As Snow Designs we currently have 14 ladies who work full time making paper bead jewelry. Currently, our designs are being sold in several boutiques in the United States and you can also find our products at www.etsy.com, store name WhiteAsSnow61. All proceeds from the sales of jewelry go directly to the White As Snow ladies and the development of the White As Snow vision to see prostitution in Tete abolished. As Marlene always says, "giving up is not an option" so we are going to keep laying down our lives until we see complete FREEdom in Tete.

  • SHEKINAH TRADES – Tete, Mozambique

    With our 12 previously orphaned boys we rescued from the streets of Tete we’ve started different trade programs to teach the boys numerous job skills, integrity, honor and respect. Our vision for Shekinah Trades is to raise up and train our children so that when they leave Shekinah Healing Home they are well equipped biblically, physically & mentally to be integrated into the Mozambican culture as honorable, respectable young men and women of society. We have started a Landscaping/Lawn service company with some of our older boys. They have a contract with a large lodge here on the Zambezi River where they go weekly to cut the grass, maintain the flowers/landscapes etc. as well as all rubbish and trash removal. Several of the boys work on different construction projects on our base here in Tete. They are learning many different aspects of construction from building concrete blocks, pouring concrete, laying blocks and painting to carpentry. As we grow and build relationships with other companies here in Tete we hope to partner with them to set up internship programs for the boys to learn other job skills where they may have particular interests.

  • FUTURE PROJECTS/DEVELOPMENT

    As we are now wrapping up the construction of the Shekinah Healing Home we are looking forward to continuing with the vision Papa God has given us for our base here in Tete, Mozambique. As our ministry is growing rapidly we are in dire need of constructing other housing facilities so we can host more missionaries who are interested in joining our mission here in Mozambique. We are currently developing the architectural drawings for multiple missionary houses and a large kitchen facility to adapt for the growth of the PIONEER61 ministry here in Tete. Once we complete the missionary housing projects we will move forward with our vision to build a school house for all of our children to have a proper education, a small medical clinic to give general medical care for the people in and around our village MPadue, a visitors center to be able to host church groups and other visitors who want to come serve on short term trips, as well as a girls home and a baby house to rescue orphaned girls and new born babies. These are the larger development projects that we want to begin in the very near future on our base. There will also be several smaller development projects that will be launched so stay tuned as we will keep our development page updated to date with all that Jesus is doing here in Tete as well as other places we begin projects around the world.
