New Life Ministries—Mission to Youth and Students of Tanzania
New Life Ministries—as of 2020 now celebrating 42 years of ministry in Tanzania—is an inter-denominational ministry that serves as an instrument to transform the lives of youth and students within Tanzania through the gospel of Jesus Christ by giving them hope and opportunity knowing that they are loved. A group of eight talented musicians who excel in various genres of music, having formed the music group New Life Band, have become ambassadors for peace and forgiveness, performing throughout Tanzania and in Africa, Europe and the United States.
New Life Ministries’ mission in Tanzania includes popular concerts and youth camps led by the New Life Band, a mobile health clinic and a residential secondary and vocational school for hundreds of Tanzanian children. Read their recent newsletter here
New Life Band Thank You & News
We are so grateful to all of our friends and supporters at Elim Lutheran. Your continued prayers and financial support through all the years have been a blessing to our ministry to youth and students in Tanzania. Our families are well. We have two additions to our New Life Band family. Matteo has a new baby and our Band has a new member, Elia, who plays the keyboard and sings. We share here some information on how the Band's mission work is doing, an update on the New Life Secondary School, and then a Christmas greeting video from all of us to all of you.
On November 8, 2020, the New Life Band School had its 10th graduation ceremony where 30 students graduated, making a total of 390 graduates to date. A way to help us right now is to join the "Champions For Changing Lives" scholarship program by sponsoring a very needy student who can't afford tuition fees. There are many motivated girls and boys who want to attend the New Life School but whose families are so poor. For details on contributing to this program and our other ministries please make a donation below.
