Hope for Tanzania

The Mission in Singida Part 3

Published 28 November 2017

Urughu has a long established TAG church under the watchful eye of Pastor Julius Kiloee who started the church 20 years ago. We visited homes during one afternoon and showed films on three evenings. During the day we trained church members in mission giving them the opportunity to practice giving a gospel presentation, sharing their personal testimony and praying the prayer of commitment. We also trained them in mission to Muslims. Church members are slowly being built into a strong mission team and we expect the church to act as a hub for the local area where there are many villages.
Ulyangangombe is one nearby village, 5 km from Urughu that we visited on two occasions spending much time meeting people and sharing Jesus with them. No one had visited the village before but we were warmly welcomed and had great conversations. The response was fantastic and many people, including a number from one family making commitments. On the day after we left the church mission team again visited to tell people about the church gathering that was to be held next day in the village. This would have been the first gathering of a new church. One Muslim man promised Deo that Christians could meet in the grounds outside his house so we felt great favour on that day.
