Raphael Azhuta, the second child in a family of 7, was born in Mulelemba village in the town of Morombala in Mozambique. He is 42 years old, married to Esther and God has blessed them with 6 children, 2 boys and 4 girls. He grew up in a Christian environment and came to know the Lord personally 1999.
Raphael planted a church at Phunike village in Mozambique and is the pastor there. He has a heart to shepherd the local Church and the surrounding community. The church has 40 members with ministries to the children, youth and the women. Services are conducted in a simple structure but they are busy with fund raising for a new church building. They also have a bean planting project.
Phunike is a village about 100km from Nsanje town.
Raphael’s vision is to reach unreachable people with the gospel by working hand in hand with different ministries. They plan to do this through home cell groups which will reach out to disciple, train and release more saints into ministry.
