Tanzania Ministry

Karibu! Amani ikae nanyi.

Welcome! Peace be with you.

St. Andrew's works as a partner congregation to the church in Hedaru, Tanzania. For many years, members of St. Andrew's have made the trip to Tanzania at least once a year to visit, learn about and assist our brothers and sisters in Hedaru. In 2019 the high school youth group from St. Andrew's made the trip to Hedaru. And the visits don't just go one way. A group from Hedaru was also able to visit St. Andrew's a few years back!

This partnership strengthens both of our churches in countless ways. We are truly better together. After traveling to Tanzania many times to meet with our companions in Hedaru, we are excited to work with them doing God’s work in their community. They have taught us many things in our visits, and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with our Tanzanian companions.

Members of the Tanzanian Ministry Team (TMT) post updates of their travel adventures on their blog. Check out the TMT travel blog for updates.

Addressing Humanitarian Challenges

The Tanzania Ministry Team continues to focus on ways to develop personal relationships with the people of the Hedaru Lutheran Parish. We have written letters, exchanged photos, and focused on getting to know them personally. As a result of our relationship with Hedaru, an independent nonprofit organization was founded when some members of the Tanzania Ministry Team decided to tackle larger humanitarian issues in the region.
