Korogwe Tanzania = More Opportunities

Today (Wednesday,7/25) we will hit the road again and head further south to the Tanzanian coast on the Indian Ocean. Team Tanzania will teach another 200-300 students  at a primary school here in Korogwe this morning and then find a bus heading south to Tanga. This is where Pastor Michael Gondwe lives. We will meet his family and visit a local congregation tonight and then tomorrow we will travel by bus again an area near to the most south/eastern border of Kenya near the city of Horohoro where Pastor Gondwe has started his most recent congregation.

Korogwe Tanzania area Primary School
The past two days have taken us to several schools and homes in the Korogwe area where we have had the opportunity to teach primary school children the simple Gospel message. By the time we leave today we will have taught several hundred children in three different schools in six classrooms and four homes. While many of the children we are teaching have already heard the Good News of Jesus...we are all especially excited that we have been able to teach many Muslim children as well. You can always identify the girls from Muslim families because of the head-coverings they are wearing. I was told that there are probably more Muslim boys in the classes than girls because many of the little girls are not allowed to attend school.

While some of the Muslim children do not respond and make their non-participation obvious in the classes (especially among the older children), there are many who listen attentively and even ask and answer questions.

What a privilege to be able to plant the Seed of God's Word in the hearts of these precious little children for whom our Savior died and rose again.

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:10-11)

Please join us in praying that the Lord will bless the truth that has been proclaimed...that these children will be led by the Holy Spirit to repent of their sins and rejoice in the forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life that is for them by faith in Jesus!

In Christ,
Pastor Ohlmann
