In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

I have mentioned that my friends Msoshi, Rebeka and I are trying to go to Africa. Because of their refugee status, we have not been able to make the trip as of yet. In November of 07 they applied for permission to leave the US and be able to return. We have been waiting for that permission to arrive. This week they receive a letter from the Department of Homeland Security to send their passport photos in. They have to arrive to the Department before Monday. I was not home to help them so Msoshi did it on his own. Yeah for Msoshi!!! I do hope, however, that he sent them registered, two day delivery, with return receipt. I know he did not, but I can dream. Anyhow, we are one step closer to our trip. I am hoping that we will be leaving by late October or early November. We plan to be gone for one month. This time frame still gives us good weather as the rainy season does not start until February or March. Each hurdle we cross puts us that much closer to our goal, and more butterflies in my tummy. I love the thought of travel and know the Lord directed us to make this trip, but the unknown is so hard for me to face. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
