Hope for Tanzania

Thoughts from Martin Grosvenor on Visit 2011

Published 10 December 2011

For me the visit was a time to show the team something of the work that we have been involved with during the last 10 years. But I also wanted all of us to experience God in a fresh way as we lived in a totally different culture. I wanted God to touch our lives and change our thoughts, views and ultimately hopefully our actions. I think he did just that. Certainly I was again affected by the love and sacrificial living of many people I met. How can people who have so little still find time, energy and money to set up nursery schools, start churches and help individuals who are in even greater need than themselves? My answer to this question is that it happens when God's love and grace has become vivid and real to people as they are then energised to do these amazing things. And we saw many of them in Tanzania.
