 During Advent and Christmas, we are putting a spotlight on the Tanzania United Methodist Complex in Dar es Salaam, Advance #12635N.  This project is related to our Covenant Missionary, Kabaka N. Alphonsine, and her husband Rev. Mutwale.  St. Andrew has had the privilege of being one of the supporting churches providing financial assistance for the United Methodist Complex in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.  The project is in need of funding in order to move forward and to complete the first building, the Guest House and Reception.  The completion of this building is critical to the greater vision of providing educational and medical resources for the people in Tanzania, as the Guest House would begin to produce rental income when it is completed.  Your support at this time would be a great help in this effort, and 100% of your donation reaches the project!  Please consider these ideas: 

  • A financial donation towards this project as an alternative gift for those on your Christmas list.  (We have gift cards which you can give to the person to let them know that you made this gift in their honor.)

  • Take the challenge to give a financial donation to this project in an amount equal to the amount of money you spend on all of your Christmas gift giving.

Checks should be made payable to St. Andrew UMC and “Tanzania” noted in the memo section of your check.  While you’re at church, be encouraged to visit the table in Fellowship Hall Lobby near the Missions Bulletin Board for additional information about this project and for special gift cards.  Thank you for your kindness towards our Christian brothers and sisters in Tanzania, and for your generous support of this project!
