Christmas Cookie Walk

Companion Synod and Congregation in Tanzania

The 9th annual Christmas Cookie Walk was held on Sunday, December 9, 2018.  For a $15 donation you received a plastic glove to slip over your hand and a container in which to place your selected cookies.  The annual Christmas Cookie Walk is the soul support for our mission project in Tanzania and all proceeds are used to support the continuation of the education of Ansajiya Njinge as she prepares for a career as a Clinical Medical Officer in Tanzania.  When she completes her schooling she will serve in her local community where medical care is critically needed.

The Clinical Medical Officer program is a three-year training program which prepares clinicians to work in rural areas of Africa including health centers and district hospitals.  Ansajiya has promised to serve in the Konde Diocese for 7 years when her training is complete.

Through our Cookie Walk we impact the lives of our brothers and sisters in the Konde Diocese and Mpuguso Lutheran Church in Tanzania along with other people in that area needing medical care. 

Thank you to all of our bakers, volunteers, Scout Troop 19 and their help and our customers year after year.  Without your help and generosity, the Cookie Walk would not be possible and we would not be able to provide this mission work in Tanzania. Thanks for helping us to support Ansajive and the training she needs to help others in the Konde Diocese.

This event is sponsored by the Mpuguso Committee.  In 2017 we raised over $2700 to be used for medical education for Ansajiye Njinga who will provide medical care to her local community when she completes the necessary classes and training.
