Cleora United Methodist in Cleora was delighted to have visiting missionaries from Africa, Reverend Umba Kalangwa and his wife, Ngoy Kalangwa. They are currently working to have United Methodist churches in the North and in South of Tanzania. Cleora UMC is one of the sponsors of these missionaries.

Their missionary work has helped to establish a pastors' training center in Morogoro. The Susannah Wesley Training Center was established to help disadvantaged women, support orphans, and help vulnerable children.

The Wesley Primary School and Preschools have seven classrooms and 12 teachers. It now has 256 children. Four "preschools are organized in Morogoro, Dodoma, Mbagala and Mangae Mkakazi.

Currently they are working on three sites for churches in Morogoro, Kihonda and "Dodoma. The support to these missionaries will encourage evangelism and strengthen the new congregations. They need continued prayers to join us in a covenant relationship for the Kingdom of God and to strengthen the Christian congregations.
