Nestled next to Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, sits the Mara region of Tanzania. On the east side of this district rests the Serengeti National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site that attracts over 100,000 tourists each year. The Serengeti is home to lions, cheetahs, leopards, zebras, gazelles, wildebeest, and many other creatures. The district of Mara is also shared by many ethnic groups and tribes who have experienced more than their fair share of regional disruption over the last few centuries.
African colonization in the late 1800's led to the partitioning of this region into the countries of Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. Tribes and families were forcefully split apart, creating ethnic division and distress. Today, as these countries come together in partnership, healing is taking place among the Kabwa, Kuria, Jita, and Jaluos peoples.
Crop production, livestock, and fishing are essential to the area’s economy.
Although there are some churches in the populated towns, many in the villages and rural areas have never heard the Gospel! Traditional religion, rooted in ancestral worship and witchcraft, still has a grasp on much of the population.
Recognizing that their tribal religions cannot provide the answers they’re looking for, the people of the Mara Region are seeking truth and finding it … in the gospel. The Church, fueled by the power of the gospel message, is advancing as nationals take up the cause of Christ.
Journey to Tanzania to share the gospel with the lost and hurting. You will work alongside nationals to encourage and stimulate their faith while engaging in community outreach. Whether in evangelism, medical, or training opportunities, you will experience God’s hand through divine appointments in Tanzania. YOU can be a part of reaching the unreached by joining us in these efforts! Let’s GO!
