Matt and Amy Dixon, with Elia and Fin, are working on the Sanga Sanga Retreat Centre in Morogoro, Tanzania. They moved to Tanzania in Autumn 2011, and recently came back to the UK on furlough, as they awaited the birth of their third child. Matilda Rose was born in May 2014, and the enlarged family returned to Tanzania in October of that year.
Aims and details of the Sanga Sanga project can be seen below or by clicking on this link. In essence the Centre is intended to help train pastors in the rapidly growing Tanzanian church. Matt is responsible for overseeing much of the building work. So far a Retreat Centre - catering for around 15 people - has been built and they have held a number of conferences, including their first residential ones. Work on the main conference centre, for which they have been provided with a wonderful gift to get them well under way, is now well advanced, with the roof on, and it was officially opened on November 15th 2016..

The Dixons returned to Morogoro in early October 2014 , having raised all the necessary funds, and are settling back into the work.
