The Good News for Tanzania & Nigeria

Developing Workers exists to mobilize ministry for discipleship – both locally and globally.

This month, we’ve sent teams to actively serve abroad with Mobilize Medical and Foundations Training.

Hear more about the impact Mobilize had in Tanzania, and pray with us for the Foundations Training in Nigeria.

Pray as Nigeria is Engaged for Discipleship

Trainers Matt Swartz and Greg Jones are on the field in Nigeria, ready to train pastors in the Foundations discipleship workshops from January 23-27. 

During their time there, our team will have 2 days with the leaders who DW trained last year, working through the Story of God workshop with them, also coaching them in their faith and development as leaders.

Additionally, our trainers will be working through the first 3 Foundations workshops with a new group of pastors.

Pray with us for great fruit from this time – that ministry leaders would walk away encouraged and empowered for discipleship; that our team would be strengthened and effective for their days of ministry in training sessions and ministry with national leadership.

Returning from Tanzania

Thank you for praying for our team headed to Tanzania!   God has done great things.

As the team traveled overseas, we sought your prayers for a safe arrival to where the team needed to be in the midst of many potential flight delays and complications.  Praise the Lord – the team all arrived with every piece of luggage they set out with!

The results are astounding: of the 723 patients this short-term team saw and met with, 165 came to faith in Jesus as their Savior!  Dozens were treated for pneumonia, and some were treated for malnutrition.  Through the Community Safety Initiative, 17 Tanzanians who were identified as at-risk for abuse or trafficking are now able to connect with a trained local HERO that will walk closely with them. 

While the days of medical clinics are complete, our Mobilize team is still on-the-ground, continuing their connections with our ministry partners there and preparing to leave.  Pray for their last couple days in nation and for a safe departure and arrival home.

Thank you for joining us in prayer!

Mobilize Medical is the medical outreach component of Developing Workers. We partner with churches around the world providing much needed medical care in impoverished areas. As we host medical clinics, we are drawing in the community so the church can connect with people in the area and share the gospel.
