We would like to welcome everyone to our blog! We will be in Moshi, Tanzania for a year working with Mosaic’s Building a Caring Community project. We will be staying with Rich and Barb Carman for the first month. You can learn more about our purpose in Tanzania and about us!

We will have a tentative schedule for our blog (internet and power permitting). We have an ambitious goal to post 3-4 times per week. On Tuesdays we will discuss cultural, language, and other fun facts we have learned and experienced. On Thursdays we will send links, books, quotes, articles, blogs, or music that has informed or inspired us while we are on our journey. We also plan to give conversational updates 1-2 times per week. At least once per month we want to include a mailbag where we will be answering some of our readers’ questions. Leave your questions and comments to us on this blog or you can send them to john.melissa.tanzania@gmail.com. All questions and comments are greatly appreciated and your feedback is more than welcome!

We are committed to making our fellowship opportunity a community experience since we have relied on so many individuals to help us along the way. We feel that is one way we can give back to all those who have been so generous with their interest, support, and donations. Our departure date from the United States is March 29. The next week (April 5) is when the blog schedule will begin!

We look forward to sharing this experience with you!

John & Melissa
