Opportunity to Serve in Tanzania!
After seven years of service, our missionaries to Tanzania, Eric and Linda Funke, have prayerfully decided to move back to the U.S. in 2020 in order to expedite the process of getting U.S. citizenship for their adopted Tanzanian children, Michael and Julia. This move will also allow Linda to have better access to healthcare for her Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, will enable their children to settle into a school in 1st grade and kindergarten, and will give all four Funkes the opportunity to spend more time with their extended families.
We join them in praying that God will provide new missionaries to live in their furnished house in Tanzania and work at their school (in any capacity—teacher, nurse, chaplain, social worker, DCE, deaconess, IT person, etc). You can find and download a one-page description of this opportunity here.
Eric and Linda would love to have potential new missionaries come out to visit them in Tanzania in the next few months. Global Lutheran Outreach can front the money for this trip. Then the future missionaries can begin fundraising and hopefully begin Swahili language school in Tanzania in the fall or winter of this year.
Please help us spread the word about this opportunity! If you are interested in this opportunity or know someone who might be interested, please email Linda.Funke@GlobalLutheranOutreach.com.
