Tanzania Ministry Liaison: For many years, BSLC has had a support partnership with Gendabi Lutheran Church in Tanzania. We support the Gendabi financially and both congregations support each other spiritually.

We are in need of a person to be our new Tanzania Ministry Liaison. If you are interested, contact Pastor Nik. A big thank you to Nancy Dakin, who is stepping away from this ministry, but served faithfully for many years in this capacity.
