Tanzania and 4 countries
Update, 21 September: John, speaking by phone from Nampula, Northern Mozambique, says the service have been going very well so far. They are still on schedule to arrive in Tanzania by 26 September. It is extremely hot and travelling is difficult with the poor infrastructure. The two 4X4 vehicles have been going well and are a big help. (Should you want to phone John or any team members please contact us for details about their satellite phone number.)
Update, 24 September: Missionary trips are usually not without trials and tribulations. John has called (by satellite phone) to say that the Isuzu 4x4 has had an accident and, although no one was hurt, the car cannot proceed. Arrangements are being made to fetch two of the team (because of lack of room in the other vehicle). They are in a remote area of Northern Mozambique called, Mocimboa-ba-Praia. Please remember in prayer. More information will be posted on this site as soon as it becomes available.
Update 7pm, 24 September: The team has decided to leave out Tanzania from its itinerary, because of the extremely difficult logistics. They will tow the 4x4 and go through Malawi and Zambia to the places where meetings had been arranged.
Update 25 September: The team has arrived safely in Nampula to arrange the towing of the broken vehicle. They will probably drive on Wednesday to Malawi to continue their trip.
Update 2 October: News from the team is that all is well and the week in Malawi has been an "indescribable" time of blessing. There were wonderful meetings with Muslims. Today, the team heads for Harare in Zimbabwe.
Update 6 October: The team has arrived safely and in victory after travelling through Zimbabwe and Botswana. Photos and slides are being developed and some should be made available soon (as well as some descriptions of services and experiences). Thank you for your prayer support.
