EOs have even a bishop in Mwanza (Metropolitan Jerome (Muzeeyi)) so there must be a church.

You have to fly a commercial airline to get there.

I think there is a bus service that will connect him from Mwanza to Musoma where the church is:

Unfortunately, there is no physical address, only a PO box, in the above link.  I can't find an address, but the name of the priest is Fr. Joshua:

Quote
The Coptic Orthodox Church was established in Tanzania in 1997. Today there are two churches in the province of Mara, served by Fr. Joshua and 12 deacons. There is a unique service in Tanzania, which is the service of the leprous people.

Fr. Joshua has been a member of the Coptic Church in Nairobi (Kenya) since his childhood. He was a deacon for 15 years, of which he was a disciple of Fr. Moses in Nairobi for 8 years. He was ordained in April 2006 by H.H. Pope Shenouda III.

I can't find any.  I can't even find the EO churches that are supposedly there.  Very frustrating.  One would think there would be more complete directories.

I have personally served in the church in Mwanza. I do not have an address, but as someone noted, Fr. Joshua is the priest of the Coptic Church there. I suppose the quickest way to reach them might be to send a facebook message to Fr. Joshua Ndolo.

 He has responded to messages in the past so that might be your best bet.

Yeah, Tanzania does not have complete English online directory of Orthodox parishes! What a shame! Some American wants to visit is and cannot check it from his armchair.

Why assume "some American" wants to visit Tanzania?  Why not assume that it is "some Indian"?  But I guess that wouldn't be as much fun. 

If Tanzanian Orthodox don't maintain a complete English language directory of churches, that's understandable.  But it's not entirely unreasonable to have hoped for one, considering that in this thread people were able to figure out the existence of an EO bishop in the specific town, Coptic and EO churches in the area, contact info for the Coptic priest in that town, and information on bus routes.  I'm surprised even that much information was available, so why not hope for more?

I suppose people in Tanzania have some more urgent expenses than fancy websites and online directories. Not to mention only 12% of Tanzanians are internet users.
