Hannah and I returned last week from a mission trip to the Iringa region of Tanzania, and we are pleased to report that it went very well.
First off, I want to say “thank you” to everyone who supported this trip with prayer and who provided us with financial assistance. Our two-week trip was exhausting, but productive. We were blessed to work with both the Mtwvilla and Ipogolo congregations, have numerous Bible studies with non-Christians, and conduct a seminar at the Iringa public library on the life & death of Jesus.
The Iringa region has roughly 2.5 million residents, yet only has about 50 New Testament Christians. You really have to admire the work of missionaries like the Evans family, with whom we had the joy of working during our trip.
