Evangelism on the annual trips to Tanzania is more of a church planting project. The LCMS has a partnership with the Lutheran church in Tanzania. They are educating pastors, building churches, evangelizing, and disciplining the Tanzanian population. Bush evangelism is only the introduction. The visitors drive long distances over dusty roads and walk by foot into the villages.
Each group with a visiting American also has a local evangelist, pastor, and translators. Sometimes translation goes from English to Swahili and finally to Sukuma.
It is important to note that the scribe plays an integral part of the team. He/she fills out a baptismal form on each person who is baptized. This form lists their tribal name and the new Christian named selected. Just look at all the information that is recorded. This is needed for the evangelist or pastor assigned to that area to follow up and continue the teaching.
