Tanzania missionaries to visit here in late August

Our partner UM missionaries in Tanzania, the Rev. Mutwale Ntambo wa Mushidi and his wife Kabaka Ndala Alphonsine (left with Barbara Drake), will visit the Eastern PA Conference from August 25 to September 6. They had planned to attend the Bishop’s Days on the Districts later in September, but now they will need to come earlier.

The missionary couple returns to visit the Eastern PA Conference from August 25 to September 6. Barbara Drake will host them during their two-week visit. She can be reached at bedrake15@aol.com.
