About the Cause

Beautiful Feet Ministries of Tanzania is a Christian organization that provides assistance and hope to the people of Tanzania Africa including the battle against HIV.

Beautiful Feet Ministries began with a prayer from John Long with a vision to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in remote villages and islands in the southern end of Lake Victoria area of Tanzania, Africa in April 2015.  Since then, it has since helped grow churches in 19 villages. Beautiful Feet Ministries also works with the community to promote discipleship, health, and financial stability.
