Last May we began meeting and actively seeking God’s face for how we could be a part of Daniel’s story and a part of what the Lord is doing in Toloha, TZ.  Now, just over a year since those prayer meetings, we are thrilled that an Assessment Team of four is leaving TOMORROW (Sunday June, 9th 2013) to go to Daniel’s home village of Toloha, TZ!

I think these words from Daniel truly sum up our team’s sentiments:

“Oh my Lord, it is real now!  I did not believe if someday this would happen.  A hope for getting clean water to my people in the village — I will always adore You (God) and testify to Your power before Your people wherever I go and you will always be my God.”

The Lord has been so sweet and so very present throughout this past year.  I would love to share all the ways we’ve seen the Lord and how He has truly led us step by step to get us to this point (maybe in a future blog post)!  A year ago we thought we’d drill a couple of boreholes and the village would have clean water within the year.  Now we are looking at repairing a mountain spring gravity feed system which is an extensive undertaking but one we know the Lord will see to the end.

There have been many times that it would have been easiest to give up, throw in the towel and believe it couldn’t be done.  But, the Lord keeps showing up — over and over and over again.  There is no denying that He has been the one leading this adventure and we can’t wait to see where He leads next.

Will you be praying for our team as they travel?  Here are a few specific things you can be praying for over the next two weeks:

  • Safe travels, on-time flights, checked baggage to make it to TZ, accommodations and travel while in country
  • Productive meetings/favor with government officials, non-governmental organizations (similar to non profits here in the USA), village leaders and village committees
  • Health, good rest and energy
  • Opportunities to share Jesus/encourage the church
  • God’s leading/wisdom/discernment 

We hope to post multiple times over the coming weeks as we hear news from the team in Tanzania!  Please please please be praying!

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”  Ephesians 3:20-21
