Tanganyika is currently at a crossroads; on December 9th, we will take on new and significant responsibilities.
To ensure a safe journey, we will need a strong and capable crew, and every student must become a member of that crew.
But first, he or she must make his or her own crossing; a crossing to greater understanding and new opportunities for service “.
