Greetings from the base of Kilimanjaro!

Greetings from the base of Kilimanjaro!

We praise the Lord for a safe arrival to Teen Missions’ Tanzania base. All of our bags made it as well. We praise the Lord for those who helped provide for food for the team as they traveled, what a blessing, thank you so much! We were also greatly blessed when we arrived with a wonderful supper prepared by the Tanzania staff.

We are at the foot of the largest mountain in Africa but it is hiding from us except for a short moment when the clouds broke to reveal part of the peak.

The team worked today on unpacking all of the food and equipment. They got clothes and dish bags washed and took their first Africa showers before supper.

Miss Gay and Alyssa Have been busy working on setting up the team kitchen. Kate and Leah worked on making our SPP box (secret prayer partner). Lacey is helping to organize and check out books for our team library (mostly missionary biographies). Samara is helping to update our memory verse chart.

The chairman of our local Massi village, and a local government official came to greet the team this afternoon. We shared one of our songs and did our team intros for them. They welcomed the team and assured us of their support.

We arrived tired but healthy, and we are glad to be settling in and preparing to begin our projects.

Here are some testimonies from the team members…

From Champion… Day one: wake up and we did chores to pack up like take down the eating site, finish packing, and leave the dorms. We boarded the bus and had pizza along the quick drive to the airport. We moved our luggage to check in and then went through security. We boarded our first flight (to Chicago) We slept, DID NOT watch movies, and left the plane after four hours. We then stayed at the airport for 14 hours to wait for our connecting flight. Day two: we boarded for our 14 hour flight to Ethiopia from Chicago, after that flight we went through security again and boarded for our two hour flight to Tanzania. We took a bus to the base. We set up tents, ate dinner, and went to sleep.

Day 3: We explored the base and I was told to write a paragraph about traveling, three hours later I wrote this ????

From Andrew: At first it was cold in the airplane, we had breakfast, and we all had goodie bags to eat on the trip here. It was fun and quick because I slept the whole time and we played games and ate and had fun at the airport. I arrived here (in Tanzania) and I unpacked. We got to meet the nationals and had good food.
