Rev. Mutwale Ntambo Wa Mushidi and his wife Kabaka Ndala Alphonsine from the First United Methodist Church of Tanzania will be visiting First Church of San Diego on Sunday, March 17!

Join us in giving them a warm welcome during this special luncheon where they will share an update on their work and future plans. Registration is $10 per person.

The Global Missions Task Force of our church has been supporting Mutwale for many years through funds raised on Mission Sunday and Covenant Circle donations. In 2018, several people from FUMCSD visited to help start building the preschool. We have invited Mutwale and Kabaka to visit us while itinerating in the U.S.

We have received a matching fund for donations made to Mutwale, so any amount up to $1,000 that you donate will be matched. The funder is limiting the total match to $25,000. If you write a check, please designate Tanzania in the memo line. You can also donate online!

About Mutwale & Kabaka
Mutwale grew up in the Congo and attended Mulungwishi Seminary. In 1992, he was asked by the Bishop to start Methodist churches in Tanzania. Since then, many churches have been organized under his leadership. Mutwale and Kabaka are headquartered in Dar es Salaam where they are developing a campus to include a guest house, preschool, church, and a school. Mutwale now works with the Bishop to arrange the annual General Conference. He is an amazing evangelist, and you won’t want to miss talking with him.

Kabaka is the Women’s Coordinator and trains women and girls about their rights. The guest house is regularly used for these conferences as well as to house mission groups who come to help with construction and instruction. Hundreds of children and youth partake in activities and education. There is an impressive choir at the church. Kabaka also runs a preschool for orphans whose parents have died of AIDS. You may recall the video of several children arriving at school on a motorcycle. They still have a need for a van to more safely transport these youngsters from outlying communities.
