Lahash Expands, Welcomes 19 New Children in Tanzania

We are so excited to announce that our partner in Tanzania, Grace & Healing Ministry, has recently expanded their program to serve more children!  Just outside of Dodoma is an area called Ipagala, which is home to these 19 new kids. Through the sponsorship program they will be able to attend school, receive a variety of medical and physical care, nutritional support, home-based care, and spiritual support from the local church in Ipagala.

During our recent trip to Tanzania, the Lahash travelers were able to visit Ipagala.  We spent time with a fantastic group of children there, as well as spoke and prayed with the leaders of the church.  The women and children of the church blessed us travelers with song, and the building brimmed–and in fact, overflowed!–with kids peeking in the door and through the windows as Clark Blakeman gave a special message along with the local Pastor.

We spent time sharing a meal, playing with the kids, speaking with those helping to get this new expansion off the ground, and having a wonderful time fellowshipping with everyone who visited us there.

There are 19 children that will be needing sponsors at Ipagala.  If you would like to become a sponsor through Lahash, please visit our sponsorship page!
