Update from Junction Church, Mauritius
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support! After a year and half of waiting, the church was finally registered at the end of 2018 and we started our weekly services last year June. It was truly the favour of God leading us to the venue, Palms Hotel which is in the middle of the island and perfect for the students and community. The hotel management had never rented the conference room to a religious organization. We were truly blessed to have such a great venue after much prayer and negotiation.
Mauritius is often known as the financial or tech hub in the Indian Ocean, connecting Africa and Asia. In the last few years, we have seen many African expats and students moving to Mauritius and some of them have found a home at Junction Church.…The church currently has one foot on campus and one in the community - families, young professions and retired people. They are a diverse community of people from more than 12 nations. Some of the expats in the church are high profile individuals leading businesses, law firm and companies.
We are really trusting that Mauritius will be known as a spiritual hub as well, a place where missionaries in every sphere of society are being raised and sent to the nations. They have recently started a connect group in the business hub, reaching both the students and the young professionals.
We are trusting for new connect groups to start on the campuses, in boardrooms, coffee shops and homes. We currently have about 40-50 people in the church and about 65 percent are in connect groups.
