Tanzania (MNN) ― A jet boat helped bring a dozen people to Christ in Tanzania.
Grace Ministries International's missionary team took three trips to the Nangoli fishing village and shared the Gospel with the 800 villagers. 11 men and 1 woman came to Christ, which meant they needed discipleship.
The team is now in the process of building a grass chapel and preparing teachers to go there by boat to help ground new believers in the Word. For two-week intervals, missionaries will teach the course called "Firm Foundations." It's designed to acquaint people with the God of the Bible starting in Genesis 1:1. There are 14 men who are trained to teach this course.
Most of the people in this area of Tanzania are animistic and have no idea of the God of the Bible. Their view of sin is "being caught in the act" of doing something wrong.
New outreach and development are taking place in the Rukwa Valley with a special focus on helping people with clean water projects, agriculture, and evangelizing the fishing villages.
The ministry team now has 72 churches in Tanzania. Missionaries in Tanzania are involved with the Grace Church in Tanzania in evangelism, church planting, theological education, and community development. Continue to pray for the ministries carried on in the Rukwa Valley.
