Tim left for Africa again on July 22 to visit Bible Schools in Togo, Burkina Faso and Kenya. His last week of this trip will be in Tanzania. His purpose in Tanzania has several facets to it; one of them being to make a presentation to the pastors attending the Tanzania Assemblies of God General Council meeting in Dodoma. They are expecting about 4,000 pastors to attend this council.
Tim will be presenting a book to every pastor in attendance at this year’s General Council. The book, “The Pastor’s Helper” has been translated into Swahili. This book is a bible study and a ministry reference tool that includes a dictionary, concordance and many practical helps for the Pentecostal life and ministry.
I will be privileged to travel to Tanzania for the second week of August to join Tim for the General Council. It will serve as our final and official farewell to the Tanzania national church. I look forward to seeing many pastors and their wives who we have become friends with over the years. It will be a bittersweet time.
