the Calmes in TANZANIA

We live on the coast next to the beautiful Indian Ocean, the climate is always warm (sometimes a bit to warm), we are only short distances from some of Africa’s most amazing animals and just north of us is the tallest point in Africa - Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340 ft.)

We arrived in Tanzania in 1996 with the goal of targeting the “unreached” with the good news of Jesus Christ.  To get a better understanding of these unreached people groups check out the Joshua Project.  Our current ministry is called “Neema House”, which means the “House of Grace”,  and it is located in an urban neighborhood which is home to several unreached tribes. 

We operate a MANNA Feeding Center in Neema House(pictured above).  We feed orphaned and needy children. This ministry gives us an opportunity to be the “hands and feet” of Jesus by meeting physical needs. 

Please take the time to explore our website and our different ministries.  If you have more specific questions about our ministries or our target groups, please do not hesitate to email us.

Our Message of Hope:

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God,..... Acts 26:18a
