One Small Village, One Church, One God
Read more about our trips to Tanzania. Over the past decade we have created a special relationship and bond with the people of the Bulongwa village.
The Bulongwa and Idende Lutheran Churches are members of the South Central Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania. The villages of Bulongwa and Idende are located in the Livingstone Mountain Range of Southern Tanzania near Lake Malawi.
We may be worlds apart geographically and worlds apart in life experiences but we are brothers and sisters in Christ. We’ve witnessed the joy of the people, their love of God and their sense of community, despite challenging living conditions.
The teams we’ve sent to Tanzania have been able to share tangible gifts, in return they experienced joyful welcomes, beautiful voices raised in song, and time to connect and build relationships in the name of Jesus Christ with a people who are so willing to share the faith they live every day.
We typically travel to Tanzania every two or three years. Find out how you can join our next trip! Contact the church office for more information.
