Steve & Ruth Lancaster

The Lancasters are currently in the UK on Home Assignment. Steve writes: “Hopefully, we’ll be flying back to Tanzania on Sunday 17th November to begin our third and final term at Sanga Sanga (2 years). Ruth will continue to work closely with Pastor Batano in the management of IBM & Sanga (bookings, admin and finance), and I’ll continue in my role as a Bible teacher amongst the pastors and evangelists of the AIC. I will also continue as AIM unit leader for Tanzania East…. It will also be quite strange returning to Morogoro without the Swansons or the Dixons being there, but we’re looking forward to working with our new team-mates (Joel & Lauren Wildasin), who arrived back in May and seem to have got their feet firmly under what was the Swansons’ dining table! So, onwards and southwards we go, back to the mighty continent of Africa, and in his strength we’ll carry on the work that he’s given us to do for this next chapter. We’re fully aware that “there is nothing in us that allows us to claim that we are capable of doing this work” but we know that “the capacity we have comes from God” (2 Corinthians 3:4). And so we commit ourselves to him and ask that he would use us mightily for his purposes, despite our weaknesses and our ‘jars of clay’ fragility! Please pray for us as we return on Sun 17th November; that we would be able to pick up where we left off; for good relationships with our new team mates; for strength and stamina as we get back into the Tanzanian flow; and for safety on the roads and in the home.”
