Traveling to Tanzania

One Small Drop officially has a federal identification number. We are one step closer to becoming an official foundation. I am still working on the paperwork to become a non-profit, but it is coming together.

In August I will be traveling to Tanzania to visit a Tanzanian pastor, Pastor Andrea Mwalilino. He filled in at our congregation last summer. I am excited to experience his culture and learn more about the southwestern area of Tanzania. Pr. Andrea said he sees two main areas of concern: one is women widows (from HIV/aids) and how to empower them to develop a plan to work together to support their children, so the children can go to school. The other is the orphans...not those living in orphanages, but the orphans living with grandparents, older siblings or on the streets.

God is doing great things through you. I will be praying for you every step of the way. Jesus never promised us that the road would be easy, but DEFINITELY worth it.
