Jossias Daniel: From Student to Lifesaver


Jossias Daniel’s path has been marked by unwavering determination and remarkable resilience. As an orphan raised in an underdeveloped nation, he is certainly no stranger to adversity. However, these very challenges have likely served as catalysts that God has used to shape his profound compassion for others.

Thanks to our financial partners, Jossias received a lifeline through our Higher Education Assistance program, and with that a chance to pursue a better life. His journey from orphanhood to medical professional is a testament to the power of education and the resilience of the human spirit.

Jossias completed his nursing education at the end of 2023, and this February he joined our medical outreach team as a nurse practitioner. He then relocated to Mozambique's Inhambane province where he interned alongside fellow medical teammate Lourenco Caetano (our first Higher Education Assistance program graduate). Lourenco, who is also now the director of a public health clinic, shared his wealth of experience as well as the art of empathy. Together, they ventured into rural communities bringing their compassionate hearts and hope.

Lourenco and Jossias share a bond that transcends time and distance. They grew up together in the same boys’ orphanage in Sofala province, 425 miles from where they have since reconnected. Their paths diverged, only to converge once more—a testament to the intricate way God weaves lives together. As Lourenco imparts wisdom, he also shares stories of their shared past—the laughter, the tears, and the dreams they once whispered under the same grove of mango trees.

Now, in April, Jossias stands on his own. Armed with knowledge, compassion, and a heart that beats to make a difference, he embarks on solo medical outreach missions. As he walks dusty paths from door-to-door, he attends to those in need of help, educates families on preventive care, and listens to stories etched in wrinkles and laughter lines.

As Jossias walks these paths, we ask for your prayers. The challenges are real—the lack of resources, the vast distances into remote areas, and the weight of responsibility, but Jossias carries the hope of Jesus Christ in his heart. It’s even conveyed in his eyes, and he knows that every life he touches is both a victory against adversity and against the enemy of our souls.

Behind the scenes, Jossias faces another battle. His one-year-old son, who has cerebral palsy, is not yet able to sit up on his own. But Jossias’s love knows no bounds. He juggles medical outreach, late-night cuddles, his son's physical therapy, and diaper changes with grace. His baby’s laughter is his motivation, and every step he takes is a promise—for his wife and child and for the countless others he serves.
