Salt and Stir began with three posts about Rwanda. Last February I traveled with a team from our church to visit New Life Bible Church in the district of Bugesera. This church just started up about a year ago and we have been partnering with them from the beginning. It was an awesome experience to see the work of God in that community. Since February , hundreds of new believers have been baptized. Our church helped provide a tent as a temporary meeting place for the church and we will also be helping them construct a permanent church building as well.
On Friday, I will be returning for 10 days with a small team from River West Church. We will do four things: 1) We will do home visits to meet and encourage our sponsored children. 2) We will meet with Pastor Kyumba and the leaders of the church, for prayer and encouragement. 3) We will conduct a three day believer’s seminar in which Pastor Christopher and I will teach some 200 new believers about the gospel and their new identity in Christ 4) We will also teach a two day seminar for 60 – 70 rural pastors on the topic of teaching and preaching Christ centered sermons.
To keep up to date on what is happening on the trip, you can get daily updates at: rwcmissionblog.org
If I have a moment I will report on our trip on this blog as well.
Please pray for God to touch and encourage the pastors and believers of Bugesera!
