(Note: the following text was copy and pasted from Pastor Msungu to the church in an email. We decided not to correct any spelling or grammar mistakes.)

God is good all the time and all the time God is good, this is our greeting that we always use, Greetings to you and your family as well and all Congregants, its my hope that all of you are doing well, back for our side also we are continuing well and in our community, this is the harvest season Currently many people continue to harvest crops on their farms, people harvest maize, sunflower, nuts, oils, and other honey harvesting from bees.

We thanks God this year the rain rained very well so that there are plenty of crops and enough, and i belive that Christians will offer a lot of harvest offerings to God because they are well-harvested, also many students are on holiday for helping there parents in harvested crops, I would like to tell you few thing that were are going on in our parish. ,

This morning I received a call from Tanesko that the evaluation cost was complete, so Tomorrow I will go to Tanesco's office to pay for electricity costs at our hostels. So I think after two weeks from tomorrow this process will be complete and electricity will be switched on

Also we thank to our almighty God that we have access to the Internet here in our church area from TTCL organization, and this will help on facilitate communication to be easily and in high speed and i believe that the relationships between us will grow stronger, So from now each and everything that will happen in our community and church i will inform you.

And by ensuring that the gospel is reaching all people and present in all areas, we have succeeded in establishing two new mision churches which are Ulete and Idope , Some of the tribes that have been reached by this service are the Masai tribe which are living in rural areas and this community are based in pastoralists, Wahehe and Wabena have also been reached with the gospel in their rural areas and these tribes are farmers.

Although we have not yet built ecumenical churches in these areas, we still have Christians who have a heart of worship, love God and have become followers of Jesus Christ. And In both areas worship is done under trees and on many shrubs but we still see God at the highest levels glorifies his church.

and the God has been performing many miracles, which we are not easily to explain, the sick are healed, and many people are being kept free from the bonds that Satan has bound in differents ways, many have been opened and redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

For the past two weeks I have been able to baptize more than 30 Christians, including 20 children and 10 adults, keep praying for the Church and all the servants in our organization.

My God continue to bless you
