Mercy in Tanzania

Tan_MercyDAR ES SALAAM, TANZANIA — Bishop Charles Sekelwa, General Secretary of Tanzania recently wrote:

Once again on behalf of our people we are most grateful for our brothers/sisters in the US for their generous hearts ,the Patriarch and  his office besides  giving money for Micro projects to help African Bishops have a way to locally get funds to help various developments in our churches in Africa, also the Patriarch gives mercy funds to help General secretaries tackle some unexpected issues when arise,recently one our clergy’s house was hit but a terrible rain storm and the strong winds accompanied the storm swept the roof of the house thank God the Pastor and his family survived,I was down with Malaria could not travel to comfort the family and therefore I sent the Area Dean ( my representative) who is in charge of our Parishes in that area of Geita province Fr. Raphael to take some funds  and help our brother Fr. Musa Lazaro with his family  get back into their feet and try to rebuild their lives again, on behalf of our people in Tanzania we thank you so much all those always give to courses like this may God remember you with your family  we humbly request you to  keep helping our Patriarch so he may continue  touching  the lives of the people with   generous deeds,hope we all know that ” Actions speak more than words”

Again one week ago I travelled to see the window of Fr. James Ngoye ( Fr. James Ngoye passed away 5 years ago he was a strong Minister of Jesus) the window Mrs Jen Ngoye recently was struck with some illness in her eyes that left her  total blind and helpless I was moved to  visit her and give some financial support to help her with food and clothing I was accompanied by some priests,brothers and sisters  such deeds are one of  those things that somebody never forgets and it  shows what it means to be a christian,again thank you so much for your support we are serving the Lord together no matter the distance we will reap together when we get to heaven.

We pray God ‘s blessings to all who give
