ou have an incredible opportunity to see Tanzania's Mara region transformed into a place of hope with self-sustaining communities that have embraced the gospel. Join us as we continue to bring hope to Tanzania!
Our focus for these trips will be on bringing medical help, evangelism and leadership training to vastly underserved villages in far northern Tanzania.
What skills do I need?
You need to have a willingness to be used by God in another culture. You need to be flexible and able to adapt to the needs and opportunities that are presented to you. Non-medical team members will have opportunities to share Christ with residents, work with children and lead discipleship groups. Medical team members will have the opportunity to interact with villagers while assisting with their health care needs. Pastors/Ministry leaders will have the opportunity to help train Tanzania church leaders.
What about the money?
The trip is $3850*. We will teach you how to raise support through letters and personal contacts, or you are welcome to cover the cost yourself if able. The amount includes just about everything needed for the trip--food, lodging, airfare, ground travel, insurance. Not included are personal items, souvenirs, etc. You also will need to bring items for lunch for the days that we are in the village. The tuition does not include the cost to obtain a passport or any needed shots (Yellow Fever is required because we travel through Kenya). Please note that your deposit is non-refundable, as well as any funds needed to cover expenses occurred on your behalf should you choose not to go. Also, funds donated on your behalf are non-refundable.
What else is needed?
Medical professionals will need to provide copies of their licenses or certifications which we will submit to the Tanzanian government. Participants are expected to be team players, refrain from the use of alcohol or tobacco (including electronic or vapor cigarettes) during the entire trip, dress in a way that is respectful of the culture (dresses or skirts for ladies on "ministry" days), and submit to the trip's leadership. In addition, participants are expected to complete the training provided for the trip. Training is provided through this website as well as through one or more "live" sessions (virtual or in-person depending on where team members live).
