We will be spending the month of February 2016 working as part of the Busega Team. This will be our second visit, having spent a similar period based in Mwanza in February 2015. In agreement with John and Christine Carney we have a busy work programme to complete, spending time at the orphanage in Mayega, supporting the young people who have now moved on to college and undertaking other development tasks. We are of course self-funded regarding travel and accommodation – but the project in Tanzania depends heavily on funding from the UK. Over the past few months, with donations from members of the Stowmarket Salvation Army Corps (in Suffolk), family, and neighbours, over £2,000 has been raised. There has been considerable interest in and support for our work in Tanzania and the generosity of our friends, some of whom have little to spare, has been overwhelming. Many have promised to pray for us daily and we therefore feel confident that with the Lord’s help we will be able to ‘make a difference’.
