African Ministry

Faith’s partnership with the Masama Mboreny Lutheran Parish in Moshi, Tanzania has lasted over 25 year. It is in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

On five occasions, pastors and lay leaders of the parish have visited Faith. In 2000, a group from Faith went to Moshi.

During the past two decades, the members of Faith have contributed financially to meet significant needs of Masama Mboreny. This has occurred through special offerings and weekly envelopes. The contributions have brought electricity to the village, built a kindergarten and nursery school, renovated the primary school, put a roof on the church, built a grainary, bought a church bell which announces services and community events, bought a small organ built at a Tanzanian trade school, paid for secondary school scholarships, bought sewing machines for a training program for women so they could earn income for themselves, bought a motorcycle, which is the only motorized transportation in the village, hired an assistant teacher for the nursery school and more.
