Mission to Tanzania

Jesus Renews AND Sends

We have a heart to see others return to their own communities to share God’s love.  The Refuge would love to see many ethnic groups in America return to their home nations or communities as missionaries to their own people.  Our mission is  Families experiencing abundant life in a growing relationship with Jesus.  Our mission is important because having an abundant life in a growing relationship with Jesus precedes having the love and interest and commitment to reach out to our neighbor with His love.

Abby and Sunny

We want God’s mission heart to be realized by those we love and serve.    God is working in the hearts of two very important young ladies in our lives.  Abby, 16 years old and in the 11th grade, has expressed interest in the medical profession, possibly as a medical missionary.   Recently at a missions conference, she spent a considerable amount of time talking with MedReach, an organization that does medical missions and outreach in Africa.   She learned that MedReach is leading a medical missions trip to Tanzania this summer.

Sunny is a young lady from South Sudan who we have mentored for the past eight years.   She fled with her family as a refugee to America when she was a young child.   Sunny, who is 17 years old and in the 10th grade, has also expressed interest in the medical field, including medical missions.

After much thought and prayer, God has opened the door for Abby, Sunny and Scott to join MedReach this summer.  

The Assignment

The trip is June 4 – 19th.  We will be on a team of 24 other medical professionals and adults (only three teens will be on this mission – Abby, Sunny and one other).   We will be involved in medical care / evangelism, hygiene education and kids and family ministry.  We will also be showing the Jesus Film.  We will be quite busy.

Your Important Role

Short-term mission trips change lives.  While it is uncertain how God will use this trip in Abby and Sunny’s lives, we do know that they will be changed forever.  We do know that God will use us in Tanzania.

Could you help through your prayers and support? 

Please pray as the Spirit leads.  Please pray for good health, financial provision, life changing conversations of faith, healing for the sick, renewal for hurting, team humility and unity…May His will be done.

We are funding this trip through The Refuge.  Donation information on the left sidebar of this website.  Please give as God leads and provides.

We are excited about how God will use this trip!  We appreciate your prayerful consideration to be a part of it.   We also will be busy with other ministries this summer.  We will keep up updated primarily through email.

Love in Christ,

Scott, Abby, Sunny and our families
