Staff Report

John Hansford and Matthew Morrell of Campbellsville along with three members of River of Life Church in Springfield are leaving tomorrow for a mission trip to a village in Tanzania, East Africa.

Hansford and his wife, Candace, lived in Tanzania for about six months before coming to Campbellsville.

"They just don't have the resources there to accomplish what they need," Candace Hansford said. "So we partner with the local pastor there to help provide what the Lord lays on his heart."

The family helps to sponsor HIV/AIDS prevention, widow and orphan ministries, food relief, Christian education (including a Christian primary school) and water development.

"We're hoping to get a well there so the people can have safe water," she said.

The mission trip will end Oct. 16.
