Through the Love of Christians in the west, ACrossMission sponsored congregations in Tanzania have partnered to feed the elderly, sick, outcast, poor, vulnerable and orphaned “yet to be Christians” in their community.
The meals are meant to cause Christians in prosperity and in poverty to ponder the Way of Christ. Consider these teachings:
Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself. Philippians 2
Do not use your freedom as an opportunity to gratify yourself, but in Love serve one another. Galatians 5
When Jesus had washed their feet and put on His outer garments and resumed His place, He said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. John 13
And whoever would be first among you must be the slave of all. Mark 10
We are seeking every opportunity to teach the Way of Christ in word and action. Through the ACrossMission "Philippian 2" meals over 9,200 people have been served meals, experienced Love and heard the Gospel. The ACrossMission congregations sacrificially contribute some wali (rice), ugali, chai (hot sugared tea) and samaki (fish) as well as the firewood and charcoal necessary for cooking. They will also do the cooking, serve meals, answer questions and offer prayers.
We ask Christians in the west to partner with their Christian family in poverty by providing monetary support that will help supplement the meals they are able to serve.
Please pray for this work of God's Love and provision.
God's Word is active and alive!
Who are we feeding?
Communities like Nyabange Leprosy camp sits outside Musoma Tanzania. Nyabange is home to 72 children and adults who suffer from leprosy and survive only by begging.
This is just one example of the work ACrossMission sponsored congregations are beginning to step into as God works and transforms their hearts and their worldview.
Bwana Yesu Asifiwe.
