Kings in Tanzania

Welcome to our website. Here you can read a bit about the country of Tanzania, where we are privileged to be working. Our site contains a material about medical work as well as Bible translation in the Mbeya area. There are also plenty of photos, particularly of nature. Karibu sana.


We are a family from the UK who moved to Tanzania in 2013. Dan is a scholar of Biblical languages, linguist and historian. Rachel is a GP or family medicine doctor, with an interest in global health and non-communicable diseases. We have two kids aged 7 and 10.

We are located in the beautiful Southern Highlands, in the city of Mbeya.

We are part of the team of the Uganda Tanzania Branch (UTB) of SIL International. UTB's vision is to enable Tanzanians to have access to the Bible in their mother tongue or heart language. Dan works with a number of language groups a part of a large team to help realise this vision.

Rachel works the Mbalizi Hospital in Mbeya, supporting health care staff there in their efforts to provide good quality health care to the people of Mbeya.
