Packing for Tanzania

The unfolding of a missional hermeneutic will be put on hold for a couple of weeks.  Tomorrow, the Beeson class will be catching a plane to Tanzania.

Length of Experience:  Depart on Dec. 1; Return on Dec. 12

Mission:  (1) Teaching pastors at a conference for Tanzania Assemblies of God; (2) Preaching nightly services in local congregations.  In all of our speaking experiences, we will be aided by translators who will transform our words into Swahili, the most common shared language.

Location:  Morogoro for the conference; parts unknown for preaching

Who:  Ten Beeson Pastors led by Kent Reynolds, the Beeson Pastor in Residence

Tanzania is a very interesting country.  The Serengeti is located within the bounaries of the country.  The northern border (shared with Kenya) is the site of Mount Kilamanjaro.  Off of the coast of Tanzania is the charming and infinitely interesting archipelago of Zanzibar.  Unfortunately, we will not experience any of these, but it’s still pretty cool.

Pray for us as we travel, as we tell the story of salvation, and as we equip the saints.
