One thought on “Celebrating Newly Approved Field Personnel

  1. Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior,


    I am writing to introduce myself to you in relation to my letter that I sent to you through email in which I was requesting for a used projector as well as for the possibility of ministering together in Morogoro region.

    My name is Pastor Haruni Chiyawi, working with the Baptist Church in Morogoro. I worked with Pastor David Masalu and a missionary Raphael Boyle. We ministered together amongst Masai and non Masai as well here in Morogoro. We also worked together in teaching and preaching in primary schools in connection to True Love Wait philosophy.

    My request to you to work together is partly based on the fact that since Pastor David Masalu left Morogoro there has been a considerable gap for the ministry amongst Maasais who most of them are atheists. This is because we were using Pastor Masalu’s projector for mission work amongst Masai and I was working to him as Timothy worked to Paul,to use the picture.

    So, this introductory email comes to you with request for you to consider rejuvenating the work in Morogoro region.

    With thanks

    Pastor Haruni Chiyawileadership.
