Mtwara is a city of about 90,000 people. It is on the southern end of Tanzania on the Indian Ocean. The major cash crop is cashew nuts. Mtwara has a large processing plant where the raw nuts are brought to. The Bank of Tanzania has constructed a regional five-story office, and is home to the Mtwara Teacher’s College. With the recent discovery of nearby natural gas fields, a large cement factory, and an available deep-water port, it has the opportunity to be a vibrant business community.
I had the opportunity to meet with several pastors from Dar Es Salaam, and their interest in bringing Biblical Entrepreneurship to their members and into the country is high. Dar Es Salaam is a deep-water sea port that is rapidly growing. A new airport is under construction and development is happening throughout the city. Please join us in prayer as we explore the potential of a new partner for this vibrant and diverse country.
Here are some pictures of the students, classes, and people we work with:
