While most would think of the Mission Fund as contributing to building infractructure and providing means of transport, a large proportion of the funds goes towards paying the travel costs of established pastors from works within Africa assisting with the growth of new works in nearby countries. This approach is proving very successful in helping new works to grow and importantly for men in those works to be taught how to lead the church.

Revival in Tanzania started in August 2016 when Pr Steve Carr accompanied by Gordon and Jackie Jackson together with 3 Kenyan pastors/leaders travelled to the city of Mwanza and started preaching there. Several baptisms occurred on that visit and during the past year a total of 55 baptisms have taken place with several small centres now holding regular meetings.

Since the initial visit Pr Duncan Komu from Mombasa, Kenya has taken charge and frequently travelled to Tanzania. This has only been possible through support from the mission Fund.

There are a number of dedicated pastors involved in this ministry who give up substantial time and income to see the work of the Lord furthered within Africa. Some of those involved include:

• Pr Joseph Mbalu (Nairobi, Kenya) supporting Uganda
• Pr Charles Mutisya (Kibwezi, Kenya) who with Pr Meshack Kyamata (Mombabsa, Kenya) supports Malawi and Mozambique
• Pr Duncan Komu (Mombabsa, Kenya) supporting Tanzania
• Pr Millan Nduwa (Solwezi, Zambia) supporting DR Congo
• Br Francois Bemba (Mutare, Zimbabwe) supporting Congo (Brazzaville)
