    History

    The Church was legally recognized in Mozambique in 1996. The first branch (a small congregation) was organized in Maputo, the capital city. In January 1999 a second branch, in Beira, was organized.

    Prior to official recognition of the Church, people in Mozambique benefited from Church humanitarian aid. In 1992 a deadly drought, the worst in 100 years, caused great suffering in Mozambique and in neighboring countries. The Church shipped 1 million pounds of food and relief items for victims of the drought in this area.

    In June of 1999 the first missionaries came to Mozambique. The first Mozambican missionary was called in December 1999. By 2002 more than 20 Mozambican missionaries had been called, some serving in their homeland, some in other countries. Seminary and institute classes for the youth began in the late 1990s.

    On April 13, 2003 the Beira Mozambique District was organized, the first district in the country.
