Tanzania lies between Kenya and Mozambique on the eastern coast of Africa. There are 150 indigenous ethnic groups, with the Bantu peoples being the majority. Tanzania is an “island of peace” among many surrounding troubled nations. They have maintained stability over the last 50 years after becoming independent from Britain. They have complete freedom of religion, and religious harmony among both active Christians and Muslims is remarkably high. Christians are mostly Protestant, with a large number of evangelicals and pentecostals. There is widespread poverty, and most of the churches lack resources, discipleship and Bible knowledge. Pray for more missionaries and aid, Christian literature, and Bible translations, so that the people can grown and learn more about their faith.

Hi, I would like to know what motivates you to create a ¨Pray for our world¨series… To be honest I found it amazing, knowing, the world of Christ is spread all around the world, above all the poorest one, despite of the darkness… What you are doing is great
Thank you! I agree with you – it is amazing. God has created every person in this world. We are all important and equal in His eyes. I reference a book called Operation World that was given to me. I thought it was important that we try to understand each other in this world, look beyond our own neighborhoods, and to see how Christ has spread throughout the world and the positive impact it has on our lives.
