Worldwide Ministries – Mozambique



The Republic of Mozambique’s eastern coastline is the Indian Ocean, and Tanzania is its northern neighbour – with Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Eswatini, and South Africa bordering to the west and south. The country’s capital city is Maputo, which is also the nation’s largest.

The northern part of Mozambique is often ravaged by disruptive weather – due to its location, which is near the monsoon trade winds of the Indian Ocean. Mozambique’s colonization began in 1498, with the arrival of the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama.

According to 2022 estimates, the country’s population is nearly 32 million – with Portuguese as its official language. Forty-five percent of the population is below the age of 14, evidently confirming high fertility rates with excessive mortality.

FEBC International maintains a radio presence, by broadcasting the Gospel message on six radio stations – including Radio Fountain of Truth in Lichinga, Radio Nuru in Macomia, and Radio Chiuanjota in Muembe. All ministry stations air the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ – which provide much light and hope for the everyday lives of the Mozambiquan people.
