Johnson, Luke & Gina
Our ministry involves visiting the many village "Bible Churches" (currently 24) of the Kigoma region. We seek to build up the saints by preaching God's Word and providing resources. For the first 4 years Luke taught at Berea Bible College in northern Tanzania. Teaching at the College has been a great way of equipping and training the current as well as the next generation of Tanzanian leaders. We praise the Lord for the increase of students at Berea Bible College. In 2014 Luke was involved in starting the "Discipleship of Jesus" Program at the local level to train the believers that can't afford to go to Bible College, or possibly don't have the academic stamina for formal schooling. We thank Him for godly men, women and couples who are committing their lives to serving God. The school has, to date, graduted 5 classes, a total of 32 students! The town of Kigoma is on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. A sail boat (36-ft gaff-rigged ketch) has been built by local men under the supervision of Harry Johnson and we wish to see this vessel used by the trained leaders in visiting the more remote villages along the lake. We can easily get overwhelmed with the number of requests we get daily. We need wisdom with how to best help in each individual situation. We also seek to honor God in the way we raise our five children. Pray that we will not neglect our task of parenting. Pray that our whole family will have a Christ-like testimony in the community.
