Advocate: Tu Faith Family


Steve and Susan are founders of Village Schools International. Steve visits villages in the mountains and remote bush of Tanzania as part of an initiative to develop schools in hard-to-reach places. Those who attend have no other opportunity for education or for hearing the Gospel. We can support them by praying for the students (many are orphans), collecting non-fiction books (reading level 3rd through 8th grade), giving financially, and sending short-term missionaries as teachers.
