May 2015 Ministry Update

We recorded a 4-minute video for our ministry update this month.

Meanwhile in TZ…

  1. Dan Eads has been leading regular discussions with Tanzanian church representatives. The meetings have been profitable. As we consider how to help the churches, the churches are being asked to think about their priorities–and that’s a good exercise!
  2. The property tax/land rent dispute with the Mwanza City Government is still at a stalemate. On one side our neighbors are fighting to keep their homes, while on the other side, the City’s plans to develop this area are derailing.
  3. Rachelle Miller at Tumaini Children’s Home is preparing for visitor season while Beth Roark’s plans to return have been postponed again for health reasons. The next few months will be busy for everyone in Shadi.

Prayer Update

  1. The next couple months will be furious-fast. Most Sundays between now and the end of June are booked with two church meetings each. Thankfully we also have time reserved for rest with family before traveling back to Tanzania. Please join us in praying for safety, meaningful interaction with church partners, and time to be restrengthened for return to life in Africa.
  2. Please continue praying for Beth Roark as she reconciles a desire to return to Tumaini Children’s Home and the need for her to be in the States for health care.
  3. We are grateful that God has provided a much more reliable vehicle for our use in Tanzania. It remains, however, for us to find a new home for the LandCruiser we are no longer using. We would appreciate your prayers for wisdom in handling personal and ministry property in TZ and the States so that these things enable good work rather than hinder it.
