Voices Of The World Speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves

Our Missionaries

Heller Family

Jonathan and Layne Heller were sent to Maputo, Mozambique in November of 2009 in a strategic move to care for the hurting and dying people in the area, especially those who die alone without family or friends around. They were also sent to care for and fill the needs of the orphans who are left behind after AIDS, Cancer, Malaria and many other illnesses take their toll on parents who die in Maputo. They are sent to speak for these precious dying men, women and children, and the family they leave behind who cannot speak for themselves.

They serve and lead Casa Ahavá, a home for cancer patients who find themselves far from friends and family on treatment and fighting for their lives. They spend their days helping cancer patients live as comfortably as possible, as healthy as possible and as loved as possible. Jonathan and Layne live with their three daughters, Anaya, Jovie and Karasi along with the cancer patients of Casa Ahavá.

Ian Krohn

Ian arrived in Maputo in 2009 as well, ready to serve the boys and young men who lived on her streets without a home or a family. Ian soon partnered with the local ministry Masana, a ministry devoted to reaching out to the street children of Maputo and restoring them to their families. After working with Masana his heart was stirred further and he started inviting some of the young men he saw living on the streets to be sons in his home.

Ian lives as a father to his six boys, Paito, Nedved, Cesar, Olivio, Arsenio and Felix. His days are spent serving street boys during Masana’s day program, administering and running Armadura, a local gym whose profits purely go to helping Masana be financially independent and sustainable, and being a father to his six sons.

  • Days for Forgetting September 15, 2018
    A Layne Post Some days the weight of reality, of new lumps, of biopsies, of extra treatments, of extra symptoms… it just all feels so dark, so hopeless. But some days… some days are for forgetting. For laughing. For running. For finding our inner child. For joy. For light. So thankful for this gift of…

    A Jon Post Have you ever watched a mother in labor? Have you watched her breathe through immense pain, strain muscles to prepare for the anguish of what she is about to do, and then put her head down and begin the hard and holy work of enduring what the curse of sin requires of…
