REMARKABLE MWANZA - "Rock City" and Land Before Time

An hour and a half plane ride to northwestern Tanzania brings us to the beautiful south shore of Lake Victoria, Africa's biggest, and the world's second largest fresh water lake. Here lies the uniquely scenic town of Mwanza, known as 'Rock City' due to the numerous rock formations dotting the entire landscape. Wind and water erosion have left spectacular granite rock formations that defy gravity. We had the pleasure and opportunity to spend several days there providing PEF and Church Education training to the newest Branch of the church in Tanzania.

Every few months, all of the missionaries in the country of Tanzania come together for a Zone Conference in Dar es Salaam. Our dear Mission President, Steven Broadbent and his sweet wife Julie, come down from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam to lead the conference.  We learn, we laugh, we eat, we sing, we talk and come away inspired and prepared to carry on with strengthened testimonies of this divine work. We are all here because we love the Lord and want to serve Him to the best of our abilities. It is interesting that every time you give the Lord a crust he gives you back a loaf. We feel so blessed to be here!

Mbezi Beach Branch was having an Easter Party.  Mbezi Beach is a beautiful little town, located about 10 km north of Dar on the Indian Ocean. President Kachuchuru asked his branch YSA's  to host the party and invite the District YSA's to come out for their YSA activity. It was amazing. Those Young Single Adults, both male and female, prepared all the food and cooked the lunch over an open fire. It was a great success, everyone had a wonderful time. After lunch, we all went inside and watched the church video, "To This End was I Born". It was a perfect celebration!

We had a very successful YSA (Young Single Adult) Service Project at the Chang'ombe Branch last Saturday.  Herman and Angela, the Branch YSA Reps, after talking with their Branch President, decided what their Branch needed most was a good deep cleaning of the building and grounds.  We had a great turnout with many cheerful and willing bodies to assist. We have the privilege of working with these wonderful young people every Saturday!
