Tanzania Team T -23

Only 23 days to go until the BVC team head out to Tanzania with the Vine Trust. The team will leave Edinburgh on Saturday 5 July at 6.00am, flying via Amsterdam, and Nairobi, before reaching Kilimanjaro airport later that evening. I attended a Team Leader’s briefing this evening for an update on procedures (including health and safety) and protocol. It makes it all seem so close now. We’re not 100% sure of which area(s) in and around Moshi we will be working in as yet but we will be building a small home for a family.

Your prayers would be appreciated for all the team as they make their final preparations.

Please pray:

  • for the people we will be working with in Tanzania – the ELCT (Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania) and TAWREF (Tanzania Women’s Research Foundation)
  • the children and families who will benefit from having a new home
  • that the team would bond well together
  • that we would each encounter God in a new way as we seek to help others
  • for protection and safety for all throughout the trip

Give thanks:

  • for the lives which have already been changed due to the work done in Tanzania by Vine Trust volunteers over the last 3 years
  • for the opportunity to serve and to learn
  • for the faith of the Tanzanian people and the witness this is to us
