While the crowd was pressing in on Jesus and listening to the word of God, he was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret. He saw two boats there alongside the lake; the fishermen had disembarked and were washing their nets. Getting into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, he asked him to put out a short distance from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. After he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch." Simon said in reply, "Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets."
When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing. They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come to help them. They came and filled both boats so that they were in danger of sinking. When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at the knees of Jesus and said, "Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man."
For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him and all those with him, and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men."

When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him.

The Dream of Msange

Janni mganga mzee

Ten years ago when we started with our first outpatients’ clinic in Msange, who could think that we would reach this goals? Bureaucratic and economical difficulties looked like insuperable, but we always believed to be able to make it, even if a lot of people were skeptical and were taking critical looks at it. Now the “numbers” proved our right. Every year more than  8000 patients reach the Health Centre, newborn babies are 18o without any kinds of delivery complications and 1200 people are vaccinated. From the first traditional equipment for malaria, HIV, syphilis, tuberculosis, giardia, typhi  diagnoses we switched to the immunoenzimatic ones. These are more rapid and accurate diagnoses  that bring to safer cures and, we can say, to more recoveries.

There are hospitalization wards, an equipped delivery room, a small pediatric ward, a medication room and ambulance. This give the possibility to patients with acute diseases to reach the main hospitals in Mikumi and Morogoro. (More than 700 trips every year). In the staff there are 20 people with different tasks and they guarantee a 24 hour assistance of the patients.

All this was done thanks to your help and your encouragement that make us believe in what we are doing. Does it worth continuing this? We will do the adding up next anniversary, but we think it does.  What do you think?
