Tanzania has been on our hearts for years. Our Senior Pastors have travelled there often to conduct evangelistic meetings and training seminars for local pastors. Our Pastor who specializes in multicultural ministry and church planting has recently planted a new church in Dar es Salaam and has raised a new building for it.
One of our members, Andy Mzurikwao, arrived in Australia as a refugee from Tanzania. In the years since he has qualified as a Geologist through Flinders University. Andy travels back regularly to the country of his birth. As a Geologist in co-operation with local authorities he has set up very successful programs enabling local people to extract drinkable water from the aquifers deep under Tanzania. This is life transforming. The village Andy has been working in has 50,000 inhabitants who never before have had access to potable water. Andy is also heading up an agricultural project which will supply food and employment for many of the locals. Praise God for Andy and his wife Claudine who supports him
Ps Elias and his wife Agnes have been with us for many years. Elias travels to Malawi for months at a time. He is planting churches and seeing many come to Christ.
In the last 12 months 3 new churches were established including several new buildings.
He has saved many out of the poverty trap. He has educated the locals in effective farming techniques and micro-businesses, as well as caring for widows and orphans. Praise God for Elias and for Agnes who supports him.
