During the summer months, some people experience the doldrums of this season. Most churches slow down during the summer months due to vacations. Of course, these same churches ramp up their outreach programs as well. This summer, North Metro Church sent two teams to Tanzania. The first team consisted of fifteen members that left on June 15th, 2006 to work with African Inland Missions at their college in Tanzania.

The Nassa Theological College is located about two hours outside of Mwanza, on the shore of Lake Victoria. The North Metro team spent time teaching at the college, providing a women's ministry program, ESL, maintenance projects and Vacation Bible School for the local school children at the Lion of Judah Academy. In addition, five men in the group constructed a new roof on AIM's Bible School, which is located on the island of Ukerewe on Lake Victoria. The school was unusable until the existing roof was replaced.

The second team left on June 29th for Mwanza, Tanzania. They worked at the Tanzania Children's Rescue Center (TCRC) where the team of six shared the good news of Jesus Christ with boys ages 7 – 17 through games, activities, discipleship and small construction projects.

TCRC runs the ministry of rescuing street children in Tanzania by providing temporary shelter, food, education, skills and recreation. TCRC responds to the call from the Bible for sharing whatever we have with the needy; "share your food with the hungry and provide the poor wanderer with shelter when you see the naked, to clothe him…" (Isaiah 58:7).

Their purpose is to go and be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus to these children.
