In 2018, Dyersburg First United Methodist Church sent a team to Mika, Tanzania to build the walls of a church.

 A team of eight (3 youth and 5 adults) was to return in July, 2020 to complete the roof of the church, but was unable to return due to COVID-19. Since 2018, the members of the church in the tiny village of Mika only gather in the building when it is not raining. During the rainy season they are unable to gather in their church since they have no roof! The roof will cost $5,000, and there are people in Mika who are able to build it if they had the money. Sunday‚Äôs communion offering will be directed to this project. Let us finish the project that we started by funding the roof.
