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

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.

In addition, the team spent the afternoon teaching the Tanzanian staff and students how to do Battle Ground and Colors drama… as well as most of the puppet song choreography. It was a lot of fun watching the Tanzanians learn how to do it.

On Friday the team also enjoyed another round of volleyball with the staff and students.

Today we went out for our last opener evangelism at Kombozi Sunday School. It was a dusty 1 Hour drive but well worth it. The kids were excited to see the team. Jordan, Robbie, Ryan and Kate shared testimonies. The team shared the story of David and Goliath, and they also shared the story of Jonah and the whale… Leah shared the gospel using the colors of the wordless book.

Team member testimonies…

This last week has been a very fun, full, and dusty part of our trip. After a wonderful Sunday, we had a solid five days of work ahead of us. Many projects have been going on including watering fruit trees, finishing a walkway around a building, digging out the foundations for a new building, and then placing large rocks and laying concrete. I have loved working, the nationals will come to work with us and we get to know them, have fun, tell riddles, and learn Swahili. It has been a great time of bonding.

Another fun activity that all of us guys look forward to is our God’s gentleman session. Mr. Steve has done a great job teaching us and capturing our attention with stories, rabbit trails, and fascinating prophecies from the Bible. I have found the time that we take to be beneficial, our friendships are growing and I love learning about things to be aware of in the future such as marriage, family, how to live a godly life, and to be a leader. It is one of the things I look forward to the most. - Noah

Just in the last week, I have learned so much about God. I have had so much fun spending time with the nationals on and off the worksite. I am sad to see this summer come to a close, but I am really glad for all that God has been doing this summer. - Lacey

Hi everybody! This summer is flying by way too fast. We have had many chances for outreaches and we have grown to love the people of Tanzania. We also have grown close to the staff and students here on the base. As for our work project, we have lain water pipes and finished the foundation of the tabernacle. Love you Morgan family. - Ben

The past week has been a blast! I worked with Saba on the staff house Monday, and then on the tabernacle the rest of the last work week. Saturday was our last evangelism to a Sunday school. During EV I played the role of Goliath. - Isaac

Tanzania has been a blast! I have grown so much with God, and have met such great people. It is so sad to think that we are almost done. Yesterday was the last full workday. I can’t believe all we have done, planted bananas, poured a sidewalk, and laid the foundation for the future rally building. No offense to the people back home, but I don’t want to leave yet. - Jordan

We have 23 teens who are excited about serving the Lord...

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!

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!

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!

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.

Greetings in the Lord from Team Tanzania!

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.


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.

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!
