You can take for granted some of the simple blessings in life; such as nice paved roads on which to drive.
Here in Tanzania, although many of the major roads are beginning to be paved, most secondary roads are still unpaved. A lot of these unpaved roads are almost impassable during the rainy season and many require four-wheel drive vehicles.
We are thankful for our STL vehicle; it allows us to go many places that we would not be able to get to without it.
We have been doing some exploratory trips in the Mwanza area recently in an effort to determine areas which have no TAG church; in fact, they don’t have any churches at all.
Recently, our Area Director, Greg Beggs, came for a few days to visit. We traveled north of Mwanza on dirt roads and found a number of good sized villages with no churches. These are areas we will focus on in the future for church planting efforts.
We also traveled up the hill to visit our Mwanza Bible School campus; Greg took this picture of our Land Cruiser on the road up to the Bible school. It is a steep incline and requires that we use our four-wheel drive to make it to the top.
I’m sure you will agree that we definitely need to have a better road to make access to our Bible school easier for students and visitors alike.
Be blessed today – enjoy your smooth roads!
