Tanzania Vision Trip
Bethany’s Mission Trips to Tanzania, Africa are organized through the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s Nebraska Synod and the Northern Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania along with Bethany’s sister church in Tanzania, Uduru Parish. On our mission trips, we spend time with our partner church, Uduru, and visit ministry sites of the Northern Diocese as well as take a safari to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. These trips flow from the relationship we share with our companion synod in Tanzania. The companion synod program enables the Nebraska Synod to experience the gifts and witness of the Northern Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania. The previous trip cost for Bethany members was $4,000, non-members paid $5,000. Future trips should cost around the same but price but may vary slightly depending on airfare.
