The Absence of Excess: Stories on Cultural Immersion, Godly Love, and Living Surrendered from a Black American Missionary in Africa
Far away from fast food chains and Starbucks coffee, with no access to Amazon Prime and 24-hour fitness centers, experience life set in a simple, yet beautiful village in Tanzania, East Africa. In The Absence of Excess, Natasha T. Brown takes us on a spiritual journey where the heart of God is revealed in the simple truths of this rich African culture and its powerful and authentic Christian tradition.
Through the stories, people, and spiritual lessons, you will be forced to confront your own ideas of God, simplicity, prosperity, love, and surrender. Regardless of your faith background, The Absence of Excess will warm your heart and inspire your soul through stories of hope, love, friendships, and simplicity.

I entered the mission field in 2019 as a theological educator at Nassa Theological College (NTC) in Tanzania. I lived in the village of Bulima for six months and quickly fell in love with the beautiful culture and students who are pastors, missionaries, and evangelists. Today, I continue to serve as a mentor and member of the teaching faculty. This mission is vitally important as NTC is the only English-teaching Bible College in Tanzania that equips ministry leaders, which means students are being trained to serve both nationally and internationally. One of the most exciting parts of this mission was starting a story group to teach Bible storying and personal storytelling. My students and I are currently working on an anthology to share their stories of surviving persecution and leaving all to follow Christ.
Please consider partnering with us in prayer and also financially to help fund theological education and the upcoming student anthology. Thank you and I look forward to partnering with you in missions and prayer. God bless you.
