Did you miss not having an auction with our Tanzania “Virtual Dinner” event last November?  Now is your chance to put your bidding skills to good use!

We are planning an online silent auction the first week of March to support two great causes that impact our Tanzanian Companion Congregations, Bomalang’ombe and Vikongwa.

1. Building projects – our companion congregations are growing and this increases the need for new church and preaching point buildings, and housing for evangelists.  Building project funds have recently been used for electricity, plumbing, cement floors, and plastered walls in evangelist housing.  Future needs include additional evangelist housing and buildings for new preaching points.

2. Iringa Hope – Iringa Hope uses a unique model to offer micro-financing and agricultural financing, marketing, and training to small business owners and farmers in the Iringa area of Tanzania.  The organization develops self-governed and self-sustaining member-owned and operated cooperative societies that help alleviate poverty and empower entrepreneurs.  Bomalang’ombe is one of 36 Savings and Credit Cooperatives, and one of 26 Agricultural Cooperatives that are part of Iringa Hope.  Learn more at www.iringahope.org.
