Matthew Kiehne returns from Mission Trip to Tanzania


Fri, Aug 2nd, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Faith & Worship

The Minnesota Youth Servant Leader Institute (YSLI), in cooperation with the Southeastern Minnesota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and Good Earth Village Bible Camp, formed a group of eight youth (ages 16-21) from southern Minnesota and four adult leaders. The mission group traveled to Tanzania July 1-16 with the following goals:

•To build up leadership and partnership skills between our American youth and the Tanzanian youth

•To connect with our partner congregation, Immanuel Lutheran Church, in Singida, Tanzania

•To share our faith in Jesus Christ through our ministry.

The mission group worked to build community by learning music, language and customs from one another and creating skits and activities. They traveled to the eastern Tanzanian villages of Arusha, Kijota, and Singida offering “day camp” programs making connections and ministering the story of Jesus Christ.

Matthew said the experience has made him appreciate many of the things he takes for granted in our community. Things like clean water, ease of transportation, jobs, access to health care and the food at our grocery stores. He met children, adults and families in the villages as well as the Maasai Tribe. The Tanzanians were welcoming, and he made many friends.

Matthew is thankful for the generous support of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Good Earth Village Bible Camp, and numerous individuals in our community. He will be sharing his experiences during the 9 a.m. worship service at Bethlehem Lutheran Church on August 11.
