When Micah Ngussa graduated from Nassa Theological College with a degree in pastoral ministries, he felt the Lord calling him to the streets of Mwanza, a city of more than a million people on the southern edge of Lake Victoria in Tanzania.
Micah and his wife, Happiness, began taking in vulnerable children from the streets of Mwanza, sheltering, feeding and educating them. Over the years, the Lord has worked mightily through TCRC which now cares for more than 90 children. Several other believers and missionaries in Tanzania and who were deeply touched by the plight of street children joined Micah and Happiness in their efforts.
