Calling all to Spread the Gospel

We Americans often take for granted the number of Bibles that we have in our homes–usually there is one per family member. Here’s another opportunity to honor Father’s Day. Let’s send Bibles and Lutheran Hymnals to our partners in Tanzania. Just box up your gifts and take them to Mission Central where our Tech4Tanzania team will crate them and send them with the blessing of the Holy Spirit on the next container.

Take a Deep Breath and Ride with the Wind

We American’s take our cars for granted and don’t really get out to enjoy the fresh air. Our partners in Tanzania long for a means to be more mobile and stay healthy. If you have any unused, roadworthy bicycles that could improve the quality of life for someone in Africa, please consider donating it through Mission Central. These will help to fill our Tanzanian bound shipping container.

The Gifting of Tools to Help Fathers of the World

Cleaning out the basement, garage or tool shed of old, unused tools–particularity for woodworking will help many would be woodworkers and carpenters in Tanzania start crafting projects, building projects and perhaps even apprentice programs.  Please make your contributions to Mission Central. We will include them with the overseas shipping container.

The Simple Gift of Music to Celebrate Father’s Day

Here is a chance to recycle music from your ever expanding library and give the gift of music to our fellow Tanzanians. Simply box up your excess choir music and deliver it to Mission Central who will hold it until the crate bound for Tanzania is loaded. We have a wealth of music here, let’s share it with our worldly partners.

9 Unique Ways to Celebrate Father’s day with a mission gift to Tanzania

1. Give a gift in Dad’s honor
Pay for a refurbished computer to go to a school or medical facility in Tanzania ($29 each. 120 needed).

2. Clean out the garage or basement
If your dad can fix anything and has collected three or more of the same tools over the years, help him clean up the garage and give the “extras” to tech4Tanzania. (Woodworking and welding equipment are especially needed)

3. Give the gift of song
We have a working pump organ to go to a Lutheran Bishop in Tanzania. Just $175 will get it there. Smile every time Dad sings off key at worship.

4. Train a tailor
Reconditioned treadle sewing machines ready to go to a sewing-cooperative near Lake Tanganyika. Send one for just $155. (2 available)

5. Get healthy
A patient examination table can get to a hospital near Matema for $135.

6. Sing in the Church?!
One box with ten Lutheran Books of Worship ships for $20. (11 available)

7. Share the Christian Faith
A carton of 37 Bibles and study aids ships for $35. (15 available)

8. Give aerobic exercise while sharing Good News
Sturdy, off-road bicycles are needed for evangelists in the newest Lutheran diocese in Tanzania. Used bikes in good repair would be wonderful. Give one and/or ship one. Ten are needed.

9. Float the Boat
Give the balance needed to send all the gifts, $4,000.00
