Jambo Family and Friends!

Jambo Family and Friends!

In the last update, you read about the irrigation system that the team was working on. I am happy to say the team has successfully finished getting the irrigation system to the field which will be a huge blessing to the base here. We have planted over 44 banana trees that will rapidly grow over the next few weeks while we are here, it will be cool for the team to see that take place!

In the past few days, the team has cleared a plot to begin the outline for the foundation of a new rally building that the base will use for boot camp this coming fall. As I sit in the kitchen my view out the front doors is a group of team members working hard to lay a footer for the foundation of a sidewalk around one of the buildings on the property.

Yesterday afternoon we piled onto a bus to head to a primary school about 30 mins away from the base in a little village called Olkolil. Down winding dusty dirt roads and through packs of goats and cows we arrived at the school greeted by hundreds of smiling faces. The team shared songs, puppets, and a few dramas and played a few games with them at the end of our time. The team loved spending their afternoon sharing and playing with the children! - Alyssa

“We have been keeping busy here by working and visiting Sunday Schools, It's really pretty here and the people are great! P.S. Mom and Dad, I want Don Ramons” – Bailey E.

“So far, my time in Tanzania has been a life-changing experience, through every challenge and joyful event I have learned to trust God. My favorite part of the trip is getting to interact with the children. They are always happy to see us, and I always come back with a smile fit to match theirs. I have truly seen the Lord working and moving among us. He is a God who keeps His promises- we must trust Him with our lives!”- Ryan M.

We have 23 teens who are excited about serving the Lord this summer! On Sunday we had Orientation Day where the teens were taught various things like how to wash their clothes in a bucket, the proper way to address letters, how to take pictures well, and how to run the Obstacle Course.

Praise the Lord! Only three more days of Boot Camp!

Praise the Lord! Only three more days of Boot Camp! Thursday is our last day of training and we will spend Friday and Saturday helping take down things around Boot Camp and packing up.

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.

Greetings in the Lord from Kilimanjaro!

Team Tanzania has had a strong start to our work project nearly completing a long waterline trench from the new borehole to the fields below. We hope to lay the water lines early next week. On Saturday, the team enjoyed their first evangelism with the local children who came for the weekly SS (Sunday School) program. They shared a song, drama, and puppets. They then went outside to played games with the children. Afterwards, the team played volleyball with the TMI Bible school students and staff. On Sunday, we visited a local church in Bomangombe. We were there for almost 4 hours but the team had an awesome time participating in the worship and sharing their presentation. Kate did a great job sharing her testimony. Afterwards, we stopped at a local grocery store and eventually made it back to base. Kilimanjaro finally came out of the clouds today and the team had fun capturing this majestic mountain on their cameras. We also held our 1st official memory verse quiz this evening. It was fun to see how quickly so many have improved!

Greetings from Arusha!

Today we traveled to Arusha to attend a church service. The team gave another presentation, Andrew and Lacey gave testimonies… the team performed puppets and did the Battleground drama. Afterwards Mr. Steve gave the morning sermon.

The team has 'hit their stride' on the work project!
They've now planted over 200 banana plants and about 50 citrus and mango trees. In addition, they've completed about 75% of the sidewalk around the dining/kitchen building. They also finished digging the footer for a new 'tabernacle' building to hold future Tanzania Boot Camp rallies. Yesterday, they backfilled the footer with two dump truck loads of large stones and then poured about 50 feet of concrete into the footer.

Jambo!

It's been another full, fast-moving week for Team Tanzania.
We completed the sidewalk circling the dining room building and poured most of the Tabernacle (Rally) building footer. Some of the team began preparing the steel for the columns. Every two days we help with watering the 200+ banana plants and over two dozen newly planted fruit trees. The team also began work on a Gazebo meeting place perched on a scenic overlook further north of the main campus.

Well, our time is coming to a close here in Tanzania.

It was a busy work week on the Work project… The team completed laying the blocks on the foundation, tied all the steel columns and poured them into the foundation… And then on Friday, the team also poured a concrete cap over the foundation all the way around the building.

Final Days in Tanzania

We enjoyed a big trip to Ngorongoro Crater! We rode in four safari trucks.
The team made a few stops along the way for souvenir shopping before reaching the campground where we spent the night. The next morning we continued our drive into the crater. Including wildebeest, buffalo, impala, gazelle, elephant, zebra, hippo, crown cranes, ostrich, flamingo, serval, and our highlight… A lioness taking a nap near our trucks on top of a fallen tree! On Wednesday, we journey to Moshe for a souvenir shopping. Let’s just say that some of us are better at bartering than others!

Tanzania is on it’s way!
