Our blog this week is a message from Christ the King’s companion congregation, the Nduli Parish, in the Iringa area of Tanzania. The Global Mission Team early this spring approved a toilet project for this parish for the amount of $5500, which translates to approximately Tsh 12,675,000. The funding comes from our Alternative Christmas sale and is sent through the SPAS Bega Kwa Bega Office in St. Paul to the Bega Kwa Bega Office in the Iringa Diocese. They help get the funding to our Parish as approved for various projects. Completing a public toilet is the current project. We have helped build the pastor’s house, plant trees and other agricultural products that support the church, provide scholarships for secondary youth (an annual payment), etc.
We hope you are doing well, and the work of God, and we are doing well. First of all we [are grateful] for praying, greetings, and saving project[. W]e Received an amount of Tsh 12,675,000 [approximately $5500] for toilet project [. W]e are very happy[;] thank you very much for your sacrifice[. W]e are very blessed and God blessing your construction continues as you can see in the picture.
"The members are very happy for your sacrifices and they continue to pray for you and they have been responsive to continue doing God's work."
It is now the harvest season[;] many believer's are reaping, but this year the harvest has not been good[;] we ask you to pray for us[. O]n Sunday we will have an election of church leaders[.]

Mungu awabariki sana, karibuni sana usharikani kwetu tumewakumbuka.
