Morning Star Fellowship Mission Trip 2018: Tanzania
October 24—November 3, 2018
with World Serve International & Gil and Dolfi Maunda
Mission Philosophy and Vision
God’s love and offer of redemption through His Son, Jesus Christ extends to all people (Rev 5:9). It is HIS desire that none should perish (2 Peter 3:9). Christians everywhere are called by God to take the light of Jesus Christ into all the world, making disciples, baptizing them, and teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded us (Matthew 28:19-20).
World Serve International (Partner)
World Serve brings clean and safe drinking water to East African communities in need to accelerate education, health, and opportunity. We partner with visionary people – from academia, business, and communities of faith – to facilitate sustainable water projects with incredible impact, especially for children and women. Today, more than 3,000,000 people receive clean water from projects funded and/or facilitated by World Serve.
Gil and Dolfi Maunda (Partner)
The Maundas are missionaries to Tanzania with an apostolic calling to reach the virtually unreached Datooga people. Using practical humanitarian aid and infrastructure has opened up unprecedented doors for church planting and ministry. This amazing family walks in the power of the Holy Spirit and possesses a contagious passion for souls.

What will I experience?
Tanzania is “old” Africa and is an amazing place to visit. The natural beauty is beyond words and the people are unlike other cultures that we experience in the western world. You will live among the Datooga out in the bush while we build. Our accommodations will be first class (tents), and our food and water will be safe to eat and drink, provided by our guides.
We will be a part of giving life to this community. After water is found and a solar well is established by World Serve, ministry partners like us build churches and classrooms to bring the Living Water to the Datooga people. With the Gospel and education, cultures are changed. Women and children are lifted out of societal norms that keep them downtrodden. Hope is found in the living water of Jesus and the natural water from a well.
Be a part of the story, see it with your own eyes.
Ngorongoro Crater Safari
Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder and home to over 25,000 large animals including 26 black rhinoceros. There are 7,000 wildebeests, 4,000 zebras, 3,000 eland and 3,000 Grant's and Thomson's gazelles. The crater also has the densest known population of lions, numbering 62. Higher up in the rainforests of the crater rim are leopards, about 30 large elephants, mountain reedbuck, and more than 4,000 buffalos, spotted hyenas, jackals, rare wild dogs, cheetahs, and other felines.
We will be spending an amazing night at the Retreat at Ngorongoro on the edge of the crater. This breathtaking world-class resort partners with World Serve International in their efforts to help the people of Tanzania find water.
Our mission will be to build a church or school (depending on what needs to be done by the time we arrive). Currently, the land is being surveyed for drilling around Lake Eyesi and we will be working where the water is found.
