Pastor Steve of Abundant Life AG Cupertino, California did a great job along with his team of teachers; Pastor Jim, Pastor Lee Ann, John and Kiani. The subject has not been talked about in our church here in the Mbulu District. God cares about our purity in every area of our life including, sex and the way women are to be respected. The message to the pastors and leadership was gratefully accepted. The team had games that taught lessons on leadership. It was so much fun watching as everyone laughed and understood the lessons. The first day was men and women together then we separated into men and women only groups.

Each group answering tough question about sex before marriage.The girl carries all the burdens of sex before marriage. If she gets pregnant her future is no longer valued. There was not one answer that included the man and his part in this pregnancy. The team brought to light the affect sex before marriage has on both men and women physically and spiritually.  Leaders learned  how to teach young men to be men of God and respect women. The girls will learn to be women of God, fearfully and wonderfully made. Their teaching will include the Girls Time Program. Both will come to know God’s great love.

The pastors and leaders said that if  this message is taught to the youth, starting in the church, it will go into the families. This will protect families, the church and the name of Jesus. The church and families will have a bright future with this message. People in the community will take notice and want to know how to live this kind of life. The team did 3 days of camp alongside leadership teaching purity to the youth. Now the leadership will continue to take this message to their youth and churches. It is a beginning. Having ALAG lead the camps this summer was a huge blessings for us and the church.

Please pray with us as we continue to address this huge problem the precious young women and men of Tanzania are facing. Pray they come to know Jesus in the depths of their hearts, minds and souls. As we come to know Him more and more our lives will change to reflect His character, love and purity.

Thank you for standing with us,

Ron & Carol

Bishop Anania was saying this message has come late, but now we are ready to go forward and teach our leaders and our people. It is a needed message.

This message came out of the need to have the Birthing Hope Center. The need for the Center is great, therefore, the need for this teaching is greater. We want to help girls that are in trouble. Most of all we want to stop them from being abused and rejected.

“With people this is impossible but with God, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

Ephesians 5:1 “Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
