Our vision in Tanzania is to build relationships with the people, to plant churches, and train local evangelists to carry on with this vision.
We joined ProChristo Global Missions in Tanzania in 2004, and in 2009 we merged and became one organization operating as OM. Our work in Tanzania happens in the Usangu Basin in the southern part of the country where we reach out to the Sukuma and Sangu people.
Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa and is famous for its abundant wildlife and tourist destinations, such as the Serengeti Cross Border Wildlife Park. It is bordered by Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Kenya, and the DRC. The population numbers about 38 million people, of which about 38% are followers of Islam.

On every Saturday of each month, we spend 30 minutes on the public radio sharing the Word and encouraging the people who can hear in the 75-kilometer radius. This has been an incredibly unique ministry, allowing opportunities to meet, pray, and disciple strangers in our community who soon become friends.
On Wednesdays, our team goes to share the Word of God at a local teacher’s college in which for an hour each week, we are able to expose Christ to these students and teachers.
Each month, we visit the local hospital and pray with the sick, as well as spend time doing devotion with the doctors and nurses.
