Psalm 96:1-4

Mwimbieni Mwenyezi-Mungu, wimbo mpya! Mwimbieni Mwenyezi-Mungu, ulimwengu wote! Mwimbieni Mwenyezi -Mungu na kulisifu jina lake. Tangazeni kila siku matendo yake ya wokovu. Yatangazieni mataifa utukufu wake, waambieni watu wote matendo yake ya ajabu. Maana Mwenyezi-Mungu ni mkuu, anasifika sana; anastahili kuheshimiwa kuliko miungu yote. Psalm 96:1-4

Naserian's Baptism

 The picture to the left is one of the first days I was introduced to Naserian. She was a malnourished poor orphan who took my breath away. I gave her this cross bookmark that day and to watch her as she prayed for the Lord to provide for her~ I was moved to tears. Our relationship has grown and since that day I have provided for Naserian to go to a boarding school and now known by many as Momma Naserian. This is her pictured to the right. She is now in Class 6 almost taller than I am! She is confident and doing so well in school! She is trilingual and would like to be a teacher in Maasailand one day! A few Sundays ago I got to baptize her and it was the most precious day one could ask the Lord for! What a difference Jesus makes in our lives!

Prayer Points~

  • May Naserian continue to grow and mature in her relationship with Jesus. May she hold on to the truth that God is her perfect Father. May she continue to be equipped day by day to reach her dream and calling to make a difference as a teacher to her people!

March Madness

 While there is no basketball here in Tanzania it seems that March came and went with a different kind of madness. I do not mean to suggest a bad one but it was filled with a lot of points for the Kingdom! With very few time outs I might add! However, I did manage a "time out" for my Birthday! It fell over a weekend and it seemed right this year to go away for a bit of reflection and rest. I went up the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro to explore new territory, take pictures, and enjoy the sites. I got to venture to one of the water falls and it was cold lovely spring water. Not only did I become a year older but the week also marks the anniversary of my coming to Tanzania. Seven years of this madness of a journey and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I have become stronger and rejoice of all the wonderful things I have learned. I count it a blessing to serve here in Tanzania.

The pre-primary staff were kind enough to celebrate my Birthday! It was very sweet!

Prayer Points~

  • May this year be filled with joy, adventure, and many God moments as I serve another year here in Tanzania.
