The 2019 trip will again focus on outreach to the Sukuma tribe, in a group of villages, located in the South East Of Lake Victoria District (SELVD).
Bishop Makala will determine which area we will work in. The Sukuma are the nation’s largest tribe, comprised of 6 million people. Most of the people believe in superstitions, magic, ancestor worship and traditional religions. They are comprised mostly of farmers, merchants, builders and traditional doctors living in the countryside.
Mission teams from the Mid-South District LCMS have been going to the Northwest region of Tanzania for over 16 years. Tentative plans are for a trip in late May but the the time of the trip could depend on those who are interested in going. We typically end with a safari for those interested.
