"To our Redeemer members,
Thank you so much for the support you have shown throughout our fundraising process for our trip to Tanzania. We are so blessed to have a congregation that has the ability to see outside of our walls and minister to the faith community at large. This project has been a large undertaking and would not have been possible without the strong support of our members. For the 13 people going on the trip; their lives will be changed, their relationships strengthened, and their faith affirmed. Thank you for that gift. For the Masaai congregation that will now have a church building; their understanding of community will grow and they will understand that Christ's love reaches far past their own villages and country. Words will never be able to express our deepest gratitude for your financial support, but more importantly for your prayers of this mission. Thank you.
We are very lucky to have an excellent group going to Tanzania. Included in our mix are 7 youth and 6 adults. Of the 13 people going, 3 are families. What an experience these parents will have with their children. It will no doubt be something they can hold onto and use to grow together. Please pray for all going and be sure to ask them about their experience when they return. They will have much to share!

If you would like to follow along with the trip, you can do so by going to Once we arrive in Tanzania, we will try to update this with pictures, stories, and thoughts about this experience! Posted on this blog, you will also find our complete schedule so you will be able to know what we are up to each day and be able to pray along with us as we embark on each journey!

Thank you again!
In Christ's ever-extending love,
Emily Harkins"
