"Taste of Home" columnist Sandy Holthaus heading to Tanzania, Africa

Last winter, the News-Herald’s "Taste of Home" columnist, Sandy Holthaus agreed to take part in a mission trip with St. John’s Lutheran Church in Annandale, Minnesota. The former Schroeder resident is on the final countdown for her adventure. In just six weeks the mission group will be landing in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, Africa.
The church group will be bringing medical supplies and altar cloths to the Matamba school and parish. Holthaus and the other members of the mission trip are collecting and packing batteries, duct tape, toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, cheater reading glasses, pencils with sharpeners, pens, Neosporin, Advil, Tylenol, prenatal vitamins and multivitamins. They are also accepting cash donations to purchase children’s shoes once they reach Africa.
During the group’s 19-day stay, they will also be providing prenatal education and hygiene training.
