COMMUNION RAIL OFFERING
Tanzania Moto (or Tanzania on Fire) is a ministry which brings together several related projects with the expressed goal of not only opening churches and building communities of believers throughout Tanzania, but also providing real hope to families through micro loans and small business opportunities to equip and change those families forever. Through this ministry we intend to fund and start several churches throughout Tanzania. Please be generous.

The Choir is gearing up for the season of Lent and the coming of Easter season. Music affects us in powerful ways. Hearing our old favorites and treasured hymns helps us remember pleasant times. Song lyrics give us words to describe feelings that are other wise hard to express. Music offers comfort and relaxation. Music connects us with God, drawing on His strength and courage. Using His gift of music unleashes His power within us.

Thank you for your support to Tanzania Moto in 2019. Our church was able to make a significant donation to this Mission Project because of your generosity . We plan to continue our support in 2020. Here is an update of the mission:
In the initial trip Rev. Mike Mayhugh and Rev. Cropper (Quitman) assisted with start-up costs for goat and chicken farms, and they seeded a small business loan program for promising enterprises in several financially impoverished areas. While doing so, Christianity and the Methodist faith were encouraged. Their mission helped construct one church and provided other progressive actions to help introduce Tanzanians to Methodism.
The goal of the January 2020 mission trip to Tanzania is to train, support, equip, and assist Tanzanian Methodist Pastors and Lay Leaders in understanding the fullness of the gospel of the Kingdom. They will be teaching Servants' Feast Christian Ministry's “From Called to Sent” curriculum modified to fit the Tanzanian context.
10 United Methodist Pastors and Lay Leaders from the Texas Annual Conference will be partnering with Pastors and District Superintendents from the Tanzanian Annual Conference, traveling first to Dar es Salaam and then out to some of the more remote western Villages in the Kibondo District to provide the much needed training and support. Our focus is on the struggling Methodist Churches and helping them become vibrant, growing and strong outposts of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are trying to strategically supply whatever is needed in those churches to help them fulfill their mission.
