Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

(dar es sah-LAHM) – “‘For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea’ (Habakkuk 2:14 ESV). Looking out over the Indian Ocean in all its vastness, I’m overwhelmed. Just the mere thought of the knowledge of God’s glory covering the sea is powerful! It’s impossible in our own strength; however, it’s our desire to see Dar es Salaam, the coast, the surrounding cities, and all of Tanzania covered with the saving knowledge of our Lord. Please join our Dar Urban Team in praying for these things: Pray for the 15 new Tanzanian missionaries who will be serving along the coast and throughout the country. Ask that the message of salvation they will bring will be received by many. Also pray for the International Baptist Church in Dar es Salaam. Ask God to give them wisdom as they search for a new pastor. Pray that God will raise up a man of vision who has a heart to reach the city for the glory of the Lord!”
