Thank You!

Hello friends,

It hardly feels like it has been 3 years since we packed up and moved our family to Tanzania, Africa.  Time has flown by, and with your help, a great amount of good was accomplished. 

We asked you to help us with a four-fold mission:
  • Preacher Training – Directing and Teaching at the Andrew Connally School of Preaching
  • Personal Evangelism
  • Benevolence
  • Church Growth
I hope that you’ve been able to keep track of us through our blog and email reports, but if not, then let me give you a very brief synopsis of what was accomplished.  We were able to play a role in the training of more than 40 East African gospel preachers.  Through the efforts of our students, campaigners, teammates, and ourselves there have been hundreds of baptisms and restorations over the same time period.  Food, shelter, clothing, and education was provided for some very needy individuals.  The churches in the area, working together grew stronger in the Lord, and local leadership was enhanced.  All in all, we feel like it was a very successful mission and we’re proud to have been a part of it.

You might wonder, “What now?”  We plan to return to Tanzania each year to lead campaigns or teach short courses.  Any further donations that are received through Lehman Avenue will be dedicated to these campaigns or to ongoing benevolence projects.  Meanwhile the Maynard, Norman, and Storks families will continue to work full-time in Tanzania.  Let me know if you would like information about contacting these families to help with their support. 

Thank you so much for your support, prayers, and encouragement during this mission.  May God richly bless you.

Your fellow worker,

 Daniel Gaines
