I’m Wendy, Geoff’s sister-in-law, my husband Mark is Geoff’s brother. I’m delighted to tell you that, along with with two of our sons, Michael (19) and Daniel (10), I’m shortly going to Tanzania!
We’ll be spending most of our time in Musoma, Northern Tanzania, on the shores of Lake Victoria. We’re volunteering with a Christian project 'Go make a difference' run by Tearfund, looking to make a practical difference to people living in poverty and telling people about Jesus. We’re excited to be working in the spirit of Tearfund’s slogan, 'Following Jesus where the need is greatest' and expect our time to be both rewarding and challenging, learning about life in rural Tanzania whilst also learning something about ourselves.
Daniel and I will also be visiting Geoff in Dar es Salaam and having some days off in Zanzibar before returning to the UK. We look forward to tell you about our trip in due course! Giant tortoises on Prison Island well worth seeing, so we're told...
And we’re doing some fund raising! We’re paying for all our own expenses for the trip, so all the money we raise goes straight to the people of Musoma. We're really grateful to the generosity of family and friends who have already given, and would love to be able to take more if we can. For details of what we’re raising money for, and how to give, please click here, very much the spirit of the work is helping people to help themselves, facilitating long term projects using local labour.
