Ann Wessel in Tanzania

Six Massachusetts Episcopalians, including Maggie Geller, a deacon and co-leader of the diocesan Jubilee Ministry, Colin Johnstone of All Saints Parish in Brookline, Robert and Rebecca Lambe of Grace Church in North Attleboro, Karen Harvey-Wilkes of St. Andrew’s Church in Methuen, and Ann Wessel of St. Mary’s in Newton Lower Falls, will travel on June 5, 2009 to the Diocese of Tanga in Tanzania.

The medical mission trip will visit programs supported by Jubilee Ministry, including a recently completed dispensary/primary health care center in the village of Kizara in an area where people previously had to travel 6-8 hours on foot to obtain health care, Old Folks Home in Mapinduzi, orphanage in Mgombezi, St. Raphael’s Hospital in Korogwe, and Teule Hospital in Muheza.

Jubilee Ministry’s mission is to support programs in East Africa that care for people who suffer from the effects of the AIDS epidemic and related medical and social challenges, and to support congregations that engage in mission opportunities and developing relationships in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda.
