OCMC News - 14 Months in Tanzania

by Felice Stewart (Posted 2/19/2012)

Glory to God for All Things!

James, our team member who lives in Mwanza, has been here twice recently on church business, and each time his visit has been timely for us. We are expecting a team of eleven OCMC short term medical missionaries next month and James, who was primarily responsible to provide for the short-term teaching team that you heard about in last month's update, is definitely our expert. I am always very interested in viewing events from multiple perspectives, and this is a great opportunity for more experience with that. I am more amazed than ever at how well OCMC manages all these short-term missions each year. Just getting an idea of how much effort goes into them in the field beforehand is filling out the overall picture for me. The plan is to visit eight different places in the Mwanza area and hold clinics for the local people. My update will probably be late next month as I will be Ngashe helping with a clinic on that day.

I have learned that there is an residential alcohol treatment program across the border in Uganda, and a young man who has recently completed it has attended the meeting that has started here. Hopefully the meeting will help him maintain his sobriety. I believe having someone in the meeting (besides me) who has information about recovery and 12-step meetings will help others in the meeting.Last month I mentioned the translation and audio recording of a prayer for help with addiction, and the recording has been listened to by a lady who does not read. The regularity of the meetings have now been increased to twice a week.

Thank you for your prayers, support and encouragement. I always appreciate hearing from you!

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
