Ted and Kim Rabenold began their work in Tanzania, East Africa in 1991. They have been involved in many different projects since their arrival to Africa. Some of these projects are construction of a Bible Institute, Vo-tech school, health center, the building of over 20 local churches together with national Christians. The Rabenolds developed a training program for beekeepers. Ted and his team have trained people in the use of this important natural resource all over East Africa. Other projects include water systems, evangelism, women’s outreaches, agriculture and livestock projects impacting local people, facilitating church planting endeavors, as well as leadership training and development of Tanzanian nationals so they can train other nationals.
As of 2016 the Rabenolds seek to continue their efforts of inspiring, equipping, and educating Tanzanian men and women so that “they" can impact other Tanzanians. The need is greater than ever to strengthen local nationals and help them to see their true potential. Ted and Kim are thankful for the opportunity to help equip the people of today to impact the next generation! As humans God made us both physical and spiritual. There is hope for the future when we address both of these areas. The Gospel has Power to impact lives and we hope that local Rukwa Valley people can say that Matthew 5:16 is true of us and our leadership team. “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father who is in heaven.”
