2011 Mission Trip to Tanzania

Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, he [Jesus] has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear
Act 2:33

We are making plans for our 2011 trip to Tanzania at the end of May. Come join us, and see this outpouring of the Holy Spirit that Paul talks about in this verse.  What we do does not seem like much but it touches the life’s of the Tanzania pastors and evangelists  we work with; it energizes the communities and impacts the lives of the children we  reach through the  stories we tell or through the Bibles or mosquito nets we give out.


Here  two comments I received today from pastors we have worked with  “When are you going to visit us your presence  gives us more power to continue working hard. And another,  “we all remember your service (evangelism house to house in  Mwamandi) now this church is growing at Mwamandi and the villages around there.  We now have  two churches close to Mwamandi,  NYAMIDIDI AND MWANASE . These churches spread  from the work started at Mwamandi .  We thank GOD very much for you  because you are the source of planting church in Mwamandi’s areas. GOD bless you and all the team that  were together at Kahama and Mwamandi and everyone who was shared with us for everything.   Mwamandi was over 35 miles from the nearest church and many people had never heard the name of Jesus.  One teacher encouraged the Pastor Gacha to bring us and that day 285 people were baptized.  Now two other churches have started in that area.

I saw a new book this weekend “The Calling, Live a life of Significance”  This same Holy Spirit has been poured out on you also,  Come with us, make a difference in the life of you someone if Africa.   Come let your light shine. 
Come join us this year. We want to finalize the team in February.
