Tanzania - January 2018

With my time in Tanzania quickly drawing to a close and reliable internet access for the next few hours, it's time to jot down some thoughts and post a few pictures from the visit.

The CLC-Tanzania has four districts that are lead by four seasoned pastors who have been working with the CLC for past several years. These districts are all located along the North-East part of the country.

The four pastors who serve as the officers of the CLC-TZ and also as district chairmen did a great job of putting together a schedule for the time I would be in Tanzania. I was able to spend time in each district to conduct a pastoral training seminars and visit a few congregations. We also had a general pastoral conference with the district chairmen and two pastors from each district at the beginning of the visit.  There was also a short visit to Dar es Salaam to meet with a small independent congregation that was started by a son of one of the district chairmen. 

Here's a few pictures and videos from the trip...
