God is doing wonders in the “Country of One Thousands Hills” and we rejoice.

  • Praise the Lord for the peaceful and safe presidential election we had in August.
  • Thank God for the successful church leaders conferences held in Kigali and in the various provinces.
  • Praise God for the tremendous results of the Deep Life (win-build-send-mobilize) partnership with local churches. They went through the Multiplying Churches and Communities training. Some churches saw fourth generation multiplication. We are preparing for a celebration in February 2018.
  • We praise God for the wonderful evangelism and discipleship resulting from the JESUS film shows, the film “Magdalena”, the “Faith Comes By Hearing” listening groups and planting churches by volunteers, workers and church partners.
  • Please pray for our Student-Led Movement strategy. A decrease in evangelism and discipleship has resulted for several reasons. One is the change of the structure of all state colleges into one University of Rwanda. This has caused many of the faculties to move from different cities. In addition, there has been a lack of strong follow up.
  • Pray for the replacement of the roof on our national office building and the development of our property. Pray the LORD will help us discover new donors for all of our projects.

  • The East African Revival began in Rwanda in the 1930s. Sadly the blessing of the revival was lost and the heritage of tribalism returned. However, today God is doing something new. According to the testimonies of senior Christian leaders, the majority of believers are not just “Christian” in name only, but are committed followers of Christ.
