Support Twende – Team Tanzania
The night I met Mark Haug he was using his truck headlights to light up the toboggan hill where his eldest son, Jonathan, had lost his keys. Mark’s good humour and resourcefulness impressed me right away.
When I learned that the soft-spoken Donna Haug was a writer like me, I couldn’t wait to read about her adventures in Safari and a Porch Swing. If her stories were anything like her power-punched prayers, I knew I was in for hours of delightful reading.
Mark and Donna came to my church only a few years ago but their enthusiasm, love of God, love of family and church family, has made a lasting impression. They sing beautifully together, pray eloquently together, and minister powerfully together.
When I learned that they were returning to the mission field, my own selfish heart screamed, “No!” But they have ears only for God and His will and so have continued on the journey to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Mark and Donna will serve the Bible College and denomination in teaching, administration, and curriculum design. They’ll partner with local leaders and, after doing research on the health of the church, will develop a strategic plan for planting churches in Tanzania. Lastly, their mission will be to equip and encourage national leaders to assume their rightful responsibilities.
They have a dedicated website Twende – Team Tanzania where you can read about their adventures, pray for them, and donate to their mission.
I want to financially support them. It only seems fitting that I offer 10% of the sale proceeds of the very book their talented daughter, Esther Haug, illustrated — Trees of the Book.
