ENGARENAROK LUTHERAN PARISH in Arusha, Tanzania.
We have been a companion congregation since 2000. Pastor Mark has led three groups over to Tanzania, in 2000, 2008, and 2012. We stay in contact with the Engarenarok Parish on a regular basis. There is a beautiful painting we received from them in 2012, it hangs in our entry way visualizing our partnership in the gospel.
This is a new mission that we have recently partnered with. We recently met Jon and Jenny Gainer, after they hosted a United Marriage Encounter in the Ukraine with Rev. Duane and Bonnie Marburger. The Gainers have been missionaries in the Ukraine since December 28th, 2009. To learn more about this ministry and to participate please go to the link below:
ANOTHER CHILD FOUNDATION (ACF)
We collect NEW youth sized shoes, for ages 3-14. “Giving all these shoes we meet children who were waiting from thier older siblings to give them their shoes. Some even had to borrow from relatives to be able to go to school. We had a girl she had to borrow a pair of shoes from her aunt because she didn’t have any to wear to school. Another girl was wearing shoes way to small. Other children were wearing too large of shoes.” A good pair of shoes is essential in their world.
We also collect new or gently used jeans and blankets for children and families in need in Romania. We have participated in this ministry for over 8 years. http://www.anotherchild.org
UNITED MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER We have partnered with Pastor Duane and Bonne Marburger to help develop strong and healthy marriages. United Marriage Encounter is a worldwide non-pro?t organization dedicated to improving marriages by introducing practical, ongoing communication tools over the course of a 48-hour Weekend experience. The United Marriage Encounter Weekend combines practical methods, sound psychology, and Christian values to improve communication between husband and wife. http://unitedmarriage.com
