Despite having very few possessions to call their own, the people of Tanzania welcomed all guests & those in need selflessly. I changed how I viewed my life.


Tanzanians live a pure lifestyle & hold family, relationships and GOD as important values. They have taught me the true meaning of “Kuwa mikono na miguu ya Yesu”. (Be the hands and feet of Jesus.)


I have grown closer to GOD & I really believe it was Tanzania that broke my heart in order to open myself up.


Upcoming Mission Trips

The next mission trip is May 18 – June 7th.

Would you join us in asking God for continued support and help for our beloved team in Tanzania? Each trip Mama Gayle and the rest of her medical team educate, support and encourage the local Tanzanian medical teams. This has allowed current sustainability for those in Tanzania to continue to provide medical care effectively and safely during COVID. We give thanks to God for allowing Mama Gayle to create a sustainable system, and we also continue to ask God to open doors left and right for our medical team to be back on the ground in Tanzania with those in need.

    Complete the Mission Trip Application Form and signed Acknowledgement Page, and email or mail to the above address. Submit your application form as soon as possible because this reserves a place for you on the team. Make sure that you have an up-to-date passport. If not, you should start that process because it can take up to 6 weeks to complete. Passport should not expire within 6 months of travel.
  • Step 3
    Once your application has been received, the board will review it. Then you will be contacted regarding your acceptance to the team. You can start fundraising for your trip through a support letter. If you are interested, we can provide you with a letter template and process that you can give to family, friends, and employers to help with funding your trip. All donations are a tax-deductible gift to the extent allowed by law. Please notify us if you are interested in this.

    $2,500 deposit (Make checks payable to Hope Ministries)
    Passport (should not expire within 6 months of travel dates)

    Trip Payment Policy
    Copy of current license for physicians and nurses
    Passport (copy of the picture page)
  • Step 5
    We suggest that you do a lot of reading about Tanzania and their culture, and suggest the book “A Daily Devotional Before You Go” by Jack Hempfling. It is a book about 40 days of preparation for a short-term mission trip. You will be contacted when there will be trip meetings and what the balance due will be for your trip.

It really opened my eyes to the beauty of others.


Tanzania changed my heart in ways I never thought it would.


Africa was a trip of growth. It allowed me to grow spiritually, mentally & emotionally.
