It’s the bush of Africa. We could tell about the very harsh conditions and poverty, but this place has so much joy. They dance and celebrate despite having many needs. Celia Mendes and the team educate, feed and spread the gospel.



meet the missionary

Celia Mendes, a fiery Brazilian by birth, arrived in Africa in 2003. She worked with Heidi Baker and Iris Ministries before moving to pioneer a new work in the Gumbani Village of Mozambique.  At far flung we call her a lioness because of the fearless way she always says “yes” to God.  She speaks 3 languages, loves great tasting food, and makes up her own phrases (please ask us about her phrases hahah).

Water is something we don’t truly value like we should. In Gumbane village, there is no clean water. There have been wells dug but it’s salt water. 20x saltier than the ocean! So what now? Celia has built water towers around the village and distributes 17 gallons of water a week to each family! Far-Flung is proud to be a part of this initiative by building more towers and donating a truck to fill the towers! Water is such a precious resource to the people of Gumbane.



let's go!

Feed children in Gumbane village, visit homes for prayer, encourage the local church, and put on a massive children's day for the entire community. After all that adventure, we’ll still squeeze in a safari!

Location Highlight - Peru

Location highlight: peru

The floating islands of Peru is a place of legend. We have grown to love the unique way of life for the Uros tribe. This trip, will certainly be one for the books.

Song Promo

The people of Gumbane love to dance. They are so good and most of the world wouldn’t know it.. Until now. We took the time in 2021 to highlight their dances with a new song featuring Brother Peter from Mozambique.

We serve a Go God, through his spirit he is always on the move. Take a moment to see where he has taken us so far and what He continues to do all over the world.
