Write Children in Tanzania

Notes to Africa-A Note from Cheryl Schrenker

Denyse (who is volunteering in Africa) has mentioned that the children in her village love anything involving English words.  Most students in Tanzania attend Swahili-speaking primary schools, but then are instructed in English once they enter secondary school.  It’s a challenge for teachers and students.  I’m sure the kids in her village would love to receive a written note from someone in the United States.  I also thought they would love to receive that note on a postcard with a picture on the front.  So what I’m asking, if you are willing and interested, whether you travel this summer, or stay in town, grab a postcard and write a note on it.  We’ll put a box in the gathering space or church office to collect them.  Toward the end of summer I’ll send all of the postcards to Denyse and she can distribute them.

You are a generous group of people! I thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for Denyse while she is on this journey.  Your kindness is a blessing.  Thank you!
