Ralph and Twyla Williams work with the churches in Monduli, in the Arusha Region of Tanzania. We teach rainwater collection and water purification methods. Following the model of Christ, we meet these felt needs while proclaiming the gospel. More

Ralph and Twyla Williams are going to Tanzania to work with the church in Monduli, in the Arusha Region. We are spreading the good news of Jesus Christ and helping the people of the Monduli region in His name. 

Leaders in the Monduli community point out two major needs in the area: 

1) The community needs a good supply of clean water for every home. Today, most people carry water from a pond where they also water their animals. Depending on the time of year, there may be a pond a mile or so away, or they may have to walk several miles each way for water. The water they get is dirty, and carries diseases, but it's all they have. 

2) There are many illiterate adults, who would like to learn to read. This affects their own future, as well as their children, and the economy of the area. 

We looked for ways to meet these needs using available materials and technology. Using sustainable methods, we can enable people to meet their own needs. While we teach them, we build relationships and spread the gospel of Christ. 

The money we raise will be used to supply equipment and teaching materials for rainwater collection and bio-sand water filters. We will use these to teach people to supply clean water for their own homes, and to teach them to teach others. 

We are also developing a sustainable Adult Literacy Program, training volunteers within the community to use the Bible as well as other readily available materials to teach their neighbors to read. This program will give us an audience for discussions about Jesus and the Bible, and will be a blessing to the community. 

We need help getting started! We must set up demonstration systems and purchase tools in order to be able to teach.

Our church is also accepting donations in our name. If you want a receipt for tax purposes, please send your check to COCWS, 1106 Colonial Road, Memphis, TN 38117. The memo line should read, "Williams Tanzania Mission". This will allow you to claim your donation on your tax returns.
