Drought is badly affecting people in north-west Tanzania. SDBs there are taking steps to farm using the limited water they have. They report that since most SDB families did not have any spare food from last year, hopes are diminishing for 2017, as the lack of rain fall continues. The situation there is very despairing to the point where church members, pastors and their families are going hungry every day.
The General Secretary has farm lands in the Tanga region and among other projects, they have the vision to utilize 20 acres around the water channel for a Sustainable Irrigation Farming Project, with income to be used to support church ministries. Our SDB brethren are trying to raise $680 to acquire agricultural equipment such as a diesel water pump and accessories.
“Kindly allow me, through you to appeal to the brethren in North America and elsewhere to support us in such a most desperate time in our Conference” – Pastor R. Ryakitimbo, Tanzania SDB
“You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth” – Psalm 104:14
