an update on the missions trip...

Here is a letter from pastor Eric....
Greetings from Arusha.
I want to take this chance to praise the Lord for what He accomplished in Arusha ,Tanzania through the team of students ,teachers ,some parents from Christian high school and some members from East Valley Christian Fellowship of SAN DIEGO and from other churches in SAN DIEGO.
In church side we where very blessed by the team ministry to our children's church as they impacted our kids with different things they taught them. As well they real blessed kids at our school Maranatha missions school they real kept the kids very busy and our school kids where impacted and blessed teachings of songs, different games.DR Dave with help from some students he he had medical clinic at Maranatha missions school in five days he was able to attend more than two hundred kids we have at our school, some of the kids had complicated cases like serious eye problems they where not aware of .
Our school where blessed by the team through construction of two class rooms which had no plaster on the walls a and out side wall ,they team teamed up with Maranatha church members and parents of students at our school, before the team left plastering of inside wall s, out side walls.
Our Branch church in USA RIVER TOWN near Arusha where real impacted and blessed by evangelism activities which was done by the team through street and House to House evangelism and Gospel crusade, our Branch church pastor shared with pastor Eric that he had more people in church the last Sunday the team was here and the mid week services.Several people accepted the lord and are coming to church and more people whom the team evangelized to are coming to the church to be prayed for.
In Arusha the team visited several homes,es to pray fror the sick ,visited oprhans , people who needed encouragement, in one House a single mother cried to see the team visiting her as she could not imagine she felt valued.
Last the drill team started water drilling in Kidemunge branch church Maasai area, though they did not fin ish the task because of various reasons the start was a blessing and a big accomplishment , as Masai villagers real got excited to see the water is coming near the,m.The Masai elders and village government had a meeting with pastor Eric when he went there to encourage the team.
We thanks the team for being a blessing to us .
We thanks all the parents who sent their kids, all parents and team members from East Valley and other churches for coming.
We thanks all who supported the team through prayers an dd financially.
W e well come another team to Tanzania.
