Hope for Tanzania

Christmas in Tanzania

Added 20 December 2010

In the UK and USA the Christmas festivities have been heavily influenced by commercialism and most people think only of presents, eating, drinking and having a good time. Spare a thought for Tanzania, which is one of the poorest countries in the world. People have little spare money to buy presents and there are unlikely to be any decorations put up in homes or towns. Christmas day will be similar to a Sunday when people go to worship God in churches and don't work. I wonder which country has got it right? Please pray that the joy of the Christmas story will overcome the despair that many people live in. A despair that comes from not having a strong faith in God and living in deep poverty. Pray that people in affluent countries will be challenged to give from their wealth to help others and so make a huge difference to them.
