At 2:00 on Saturday I’ll be on a plane, headed for Detroit and my final destination of Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania. Pastor Nnko, our Associate staff in Tanzania for almost twenty years, was a prolific church planter before he died in 2012. Nnko began almost 25 churches and each one is pastored by one of his disciples. He named the churches all ‘Grace Evangelical Church’ because he thought that was a cool name!
Dickson Lazier is one of his disciples. Dickson pastors the church in Arusha, which was built by a group of men from our church here in Fayetteville. I’ll be teaching three seminars for Nnko’s disciples since they are like sheep without a shepherd since he died. I hope to re-focus their vision on helping their people to grow in Christ-like character.
Please be praying for Dickson and Pastor Charles Sengasu as they coordinate the seminars and for health and strength for me.
