“Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Greetings from Tanzania UMC. Please accept here our gratitudes for your prayers and financial support during the last year 2016. May this new year be a successful year for you. Peace and Grace of our Lord Jesus be with you all.”  The most recent Newsletter from the UMC of Tanzania is posted on the Missions Bulletin Board.  Kabaka N. Alphonsine and her husband Rev. Mutwale included updated information in the Newsletter about the UMC of Tanzania Conference Center Guest House building project.  During the course of construction they faced increases in the cost of building materials, and expressed thanks to God and all donors for support throughout the construction process.  The roof is on, doors and window grills are in place, and, they hope the plaster work will be completed this month.  The next steps include work on the septic tanks, tile work, ceilings, and finally furniture.  They appeal for continued financial and prayer support as these are needed in order to extend and advance various church planting and building projects, and those programs which assist vulnerable populations.   Thank you to the people of St. Andrew for your covenant partnership with this missionary couple as they tirelessly work to bring the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Tanzania!
