Kathleen Quellmalz is the Director of the Safina Street Network, an outreach service working with vulnerable children and young people in Tanzania. At the end of last year, Safina decided to use land owned by each of its five branches to grow crops to use to sustain the ministry financially. Please pray that God would bless their work and provide a good harvest this year.

“From the 14th to the 19th of December 2020 Safina staff members will meet for their annual staff retreat and Annual General Meeting at our Safina Education Center in Morogoro. Please pray that God would meet and refresh us during those days and that God would protect our children and youth in our homes, while most of the staff will be away.”

“I thank God for the opportunity to teach God’s word and minister to the children and youth at the Children’s Remand Home. Recently the Officer in Charge called asking me to counsel a young 17-year-old boy who had tried to kill himself. He was abandoned when he was two years old, raised at an orphanage, he never was able to complete even Primary school, now he needed to stand on his own two feet aged 17 and he got in trouble. He did not see a reason to keep on living. We talked and prayed for a long time. One week later he was the first one in the classroom and greeted me with a smile. Asking him how he was doing, he said that he feels so much better. Thank God for bringing hope into his heart.”

“Like everywhere in this world Coronavirus has changed our lives and work. In the beginning, it was still far away but on 17th March it arrived in Tanzania. Two days later all the schools, colleges and universities were closed. We changed to Home Schooling in our homes… Up to now our children enjoy the Home schooling and some even say that they are learning more than at school. The bigger challenge is how to care for those still living on the streets. They are in a much more vulnerable situation. In Dodoma, the children are still allowed to come to the front porch of our Drop-In Centre in the morning, they receive tea and bread for breakfast and also have a short devotion and prayer time. In Dar es Salaam we distributed mouth masks, sanitizers and the gospel of John which included safety information about Corona to many street boys. Some of the children decided to return to their families, which actually is a good side effect of Coronavirus. Children living with their own families are visited in their homes and are helped with food packages to keep them at home and away from begging in the streets… Please pray that our children and youth will not get tired of staying at home and that God would give energy and perseverance to everybody helping with Home Schooling.”
