After an eventful time of fundraising Chris and I, along with 10 others, packed our suitcases and headed for East Africa. We set off from July 23 to August 6, 2013.
The team’s aim was to help in an evangelistic campaign in the rural town of Kiseke, near Mwanza in Tanzania. Tents were set up outside for the people to sit under in preparation for the three day campaign which consisted of music and the sharing of a biblical message, followed by a drama to help illustrate and bring to life the gospel message. The team was also involved in praying for the needs of the people.
