Firstly it is my pleasure to take this opportunity to thank all our friends, stake holders and donors who encouraged us through their moral, material and financial support. This enabled us to reach the current achievement for the year 2021, which would have been very difficult to realize, without their assistance.
We faced different challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, which affected our financial donors from abroad; due to lock downs affecting almost everything, including world economy. Yet the 2021 has had remarkable historical changes for our church as follows:-
The Pentecostal Missionary Church (PMC) officially joined the Pentecostal Free Will Baptist (PFWB), hence it has been registered as the ministry in Tanzania. This move was awaited for many years.
The PFWB planted 8 new Churches:
(i) Bukoba (Kagera)
(ii) Same (Kilimanjaro)
(iii) Shembekiza - Lushoto (Tanga)
(iv) KibahaKwa Mathias (Coast)
(v) Misufini - Mlandizi (Coast),
(vi) KibahaPichayandege (Coast)
(vii) Mihogoni (Tabora) and
(viii) Kiwalani - Ilala (Dar es Salaam).
The overall membership of our ministry has increased. The new members are under discipleship training.
May the Lord the glorified for this event which was held successfully. About 120 pastors from upcountry regions attended, and 10 ministers from our foreign missions Churches in Kenya, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Twelve (12) serving ministers were under pastoral and Bible teaching at the PMC School of Ministry. They graduated with Certificates and Diploma Awards. The graduation ceremony was held during the National Annual General Conference.
The Church ordained seven (7) new ministers for the Ministry of the Word in different locations; this has added to the ministerial labor force of our church; and are expected to bring more people for the Lord.
During the National General Conference which were held in the morning, there were also Mass Crusade services held in the evenings, outside. Many people heard the gospel messages and souls were harvested into faith.
The church members conducted witnessing house-to-house and person-to-person. Many who heard the gospel believed in Jesus Christ and received Him as LORD and Savior; were baptized and are now attending at Church.
The Bishop travelled to motivate, encourage and strengthen the orphans in our orphanage centers as follows:-
(i) Sofu (Kibaha)
(v) Buseresere (Geita)
(vi) Muleba (Kagura) and
(vii) Lushoto (Tanga).
While we pray to God for provisions we also invite our friends, donor agencies, charitable friends, organizations and
stakeholders to support our ministry for the following:
(i) To complete the Sanctuary headquarters (Kibaha)
*Extension of church building.
* Laying of floor tiles

There are 50 pastors serving in poor villages. We request your kind support each of them with at least $ 75 monthly. This support is for at least the first three years, after which, it is expected that their local churches will be able to support them through their tithes and offerings.
LOCALLY - It is expected that the Bishop will travel to up - country regions to teach, encourage, motivate and follow up of ministry work being done in different places.
The Bishop will travel to the United States of America, Malawi, Kenya, Zambia and Zimbabwe. In these countries there are PFWB Churches planted in past, and whose minister attended the National Annual General Conference 2021. He is to visit the churches as Bishop/Overseer.
The people most respondent to the gospel are in the up country regions. However, there are churches in which the
worship services are conducted in primitive houses thatched with grass and in trees, we request support to build baked brick
walls and galvanized iron sheets for roofing in the following locations:
