Cory & Kim Hodgson

Hodgson April 2015The Hodgsons began their first term as missionaries in February 2006. They attended language school in Iringa, Tanzania, for four and a half months to learn Swahili. After language school, Cory, Kim, and Naomi moved to the city of Mbeya where they continued learning the language and adjusting to the culture. The first couple of years were spent improving their Swahili, building relationships with locals, and figuring out how to best fit into the strategic plan of Grace Ministries International and the Grace Church of Tanzania.

Soon after arriving in Mbeya, Cory was asked to teach a Bible study for a group of students at a nearby university. This has been something he continued to do throughout their first term. He was also active in teaching and equipping evangelists within the church. Both Cory and Kim have had an opportunity to minister to their fellow missionaries through hospitality. Their son Elijah was born in August 2007, and Kim has been home schooling Naomi and Elijah for the last several years.

The Hodgsons continued in the aforementioned ministries in their second term in Tanzania, as well as beginning a new ministry. Cory developed a Bible-based Swahili correspondence course. The course is centered on 33 New Testament lessons translated from English into Swahili for use throughout Tanzania. This ministry has transitioned into the Tanzanian prison system, where Cory and his team minister to both the physical and spiritual needs of the prisoners of the Mbeya region.

The Hodgsons welcomed their third child Timothy in November of 2014. They are currently preparing for mission conferences in Michigan and the East Coast.
