It is with great gratitude that I send you this report from Tanzania. So often I have the privilege of seeing a project through from start to finish and experience the joy of the individuals affected by your faithful giving. I wish you could be with me in those moments to see first hand the appreciation and the practical difference it is making in the lives of students preparing for full-time ministry.
I recently traveled to Tanzania along with eight Pastors from ND, SD, MN, and WA. We took part in the dedication of the first phase of the Dakota Academic Center on the campus of Central Bible College in Dodoma. After the ribbon was cut, the students flooded into the new classrooms shouting, 'Thank you, America." We were honored to represent you in that moment.
These new classrooms provided the greatly needed space for 225 students as the school continues to train the pastors going out to lead the newly planted churches across Tanzania. This first phase of classrooms was made possible by your generous giving.
