Update from Our Partners in Tanzania
Easter’s Outreach Advisory Team recently approved a funding request to support the mission and ministry of our partner congregation in Nyanzwa, Tanzania. $4,242.54 from Easter’s Bega Kwa Bega account will go toward purchasing a new sound system and generator to be used at the main preaching point.
The previous sound system was no longer working (including the generator and several speakers). They were also renting a portable sound system to be used on the back of a truck for evangelism.
The new sound system will not only better meet the needs of the large sanctuary at the main preaching point, but several components are portable so they will no longer need to rent a system to bring on evangelism trips.
Travelers from Easter Lutheran will get to see the new system and participate in a dedication ceremony during the August 6th-August 22nd, 2020 trip.
Here is a response from the lead pastor in Nyanzwa, Pastor Yeremiah Mponzi:
“’Bwana asifiwe’=Praise the Lord. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This is more than a good news for our parish. We will make sure we get the good set of music system and when they come they will have a chance to dedicate. These instruments will help a lot in doing evangelism and bringing more people to the Christ.
We will keep you in our prayers. You are welcome to visit Nyanzwa any time you wish.
To God be the Glory.”
In addition, our partners have also asked for prayers for the following:
1). The construction work on Mpilipili preaching point and the fundi’s involved in laying the foundation right now.
2). For their efforts in evangelizing within the community and growth of Christian’s calling those preaching points home.
