Global: Helping Hands, Mozambique
Jeff and Courtney Acton, along with their three children, are following God on a journey to serve in Mozambique, Africa, with One Mission Society. The Actons serve through multiple ministries. One of those ministries is Helping Hands, OMS Mozambique’s ministry to those with special needs in and around Maputo.
 
We are partnering with the Acton’s to raise funds for families that have a child or family member with a disability and are in need of a wheelchair.
