"Pastor's Libraries" Equip Tanzanian Pastors

[129] prayers in [9] nations have been posted for Tanzanian pastors.

Many Tanzanian pastors lack access to biblical training and in-depth study resources needed to help their congregations stand firm in their faith. Front-line workers in central Tanzania recently handed out 706 boxes of “Pastor’s Libraries” containing study Bibles and other Christian educational aids designed to help pastors train themselves. “Even before we can attend a Bible college, it feels now like we have a Bible college at home through these materials,” said one church leader upon receiving the boxed study kit. The kits were distributed to pastors from several denominational groups. “The pastors are so incredibly grateful,” said a front-line worker. “These libraries and materials are far too high of a cost for them to ever purchase on their own.”

I pray this gifting will spread to other nations that also have pastors who need these types of resources & could not afford them.
