Message from Steve and Ruth Lancaster

“Greetings from Tanzania! We want to say a BIG THANK YOU to you as a church for sending the team to Tanzania for the AIM conference a few weeks ago. Eddie’s ministry was much appreciated as was the rest of the team. Feedback has been excellent! A couple of people said this about the children’s team:  

“We feel so blessed that they took such good loving care of our kids – please come back”!

“Excellent – what a great team! 

So – a huge well done to the folks who gave of their time & energy – and to all

who prayed & supported them in the run-up to their trip and during the

conference itself. Thanks also to those who sent cards and to those who cleared

their cupboards of unwanted games & puzzles! Your support and your prayers

over these last two years is much appreciated – and we look forward to spending some time with you from April onwards!”
