We are excited to let you know that we have finished roofing the church at Kilimanjaro, North Eastern Tanzania. Also, the church in Dodoma, Central Tanzania has been roofed. Praise the Lord. We are so grateful to you dear partners for contributing to roofing these churches. Currently we are working on roofing the church at Mvumi, Morogoro. It is such a blessing to the members of these churches, when they have plateaued in their giving and building, to have help come from you dear partners. Thank you so very much.
Youth & Women’s Ministries Conferences:
In June, we had a National Youth Conference in Dar-es-Salaam and a Women’s Conference in Singida. I spoke to the youth; Yasinta spoke to the women about the Holy Spirit. Both of these conferences went well and they elected their leaders for the next four years. I was pleased with the outcome of the elections because they reflected growth and maturity.
We are still praying for a building permit to build a permanent church building at the IPHC-TZ Center where the Ebenezer temporary church is. Every small progress is a celebration to us. Here is something to rejoice about with us- the property use has been changed from residential to church! We praise God for this development. The process of getting legal building permits is very slow here but we are persistent. Please pray and believe with us that things will work out for good for us that we may obtain the permits before the end of the year.
My wife and I will be attending the 28th General Conference in Orlando, Florida. In August, we will travel to Harare, Zimbabwe to speak with the IPHC leaders there, and then to Lusaka, Zambia to attend a National Conference of our church there. Please pray for safe travels.
This year we had a kids day, and children ministered to us with their talents, scripture, and songs. It was a great day of celebration for them.
People to People:
People to People’s Feed the Hungry program continues to be a blessing to the street youth and kids who come to listen to the word of God and then eat the food prepared for them every Saturday. We are so grateful to those who continue to support this ministry.
We could not accomplish the well drilling and the roofing of the churches without your prayers and financial support. We greatly appreciate your partnership with us in missions. We are here because of your generosity. Thank you so very much.
