Bomb in Arusha

Written 07.05.2013 20:57 under Archive

Dear friends,
 

As you might have heard in the news, on Sunday morning around 11am a bomb was thrown into the Roman Catholic church they were dedicating that day, about 800m from where Miriam and Per lives. There were many prominent guests like a representative from the pope in Rome.

 

About 86 people were injured especially many children and 3 have been reported dead. The wounded were brought to 3 different hospitals in the area and many are still in a critical condition.
The military quickly came to the scene as they were afraid more bombs were hidden, fortunately they did not find any.

 

We have been told they have caught 3 Tanzanian and 3 (some say 4) Arabs (who flew in that week from Saudi Arabia). No organization has taken responsibility for the action, the locals are sure it is the muslims especially in the light of what has happened on Zanzibar and Mwanza. (Churches were burnt and priests were decapitated).

 

The situation is tense. Yesterday a minister was there to talk to the church/people in Olasiti and asked them to pray for the situation and not take revenge. This minister is one of the few we have in our parliament as many muslims have been elected. We would like you to pray for the situation that it will not escalate to become a holy war between Christians and muslims.

 

Lastly I would like to ask you to pray for us and remember us in your prayers for safety and guardian angels. We do not feel afraid as we know God has put us here.

 
With love Tabitha and Mirjam

Nu har vi snart været hjemme i 2 mdr. og tripper for at komme i gang,

 med vores møderække rundt i landet.
Corona krisen har desværre gjort, at det ikke har været muligt at følge vores mødeaktiviteter rundt i kirker og foreninger.
 
Det er vi selvfølgelig meget kede af, derfor har vi valgt at bruge de muligheder der findes ved at bruge nettet.
Der er flere kirker, der har opfordret os til at lave et videoklip, for at fortælle om arbejdet i Tanzania.
Det gjorde vi og sendte det til de kirker, der er interesseret som så formidler det videre via nettet til deres medlemmer.
Vi har dermed også lyst til at sende den rundt til vores venner, som måske ikke har mulighed for at høre vores hilsen gennem kirkerne.
 
Videoklippet varer 25 min.  
 
Tabitha starter med at fortælle om vores tur hjem til Danmark.
 
Vi viser en kort filmklip om arbejdet, som fortæller om vores hverdag, både når vi er hjemme og de forskellige aktiviteter rundt i landet. Bl.a. er vi på sygebesøg hos en psykisk syg mor, som beder os hjælpe med at få sit barn ind på vores børnehjem.
 
Torkild slutter af med at fortælle om nogle af de behov, der er opstået på grund af Corona.
Vi er glade for de muligheder der findes på nettet til at holde kontakten til jer kære venner.
 
Her er link til videoen:
