2011 June Service Trip

On June 13, 2011 a team of 10 people departed for Kigali, Rwanda. Hosted by the E-Free Church of Rwanda, this team saw some of the work of the church, the schools they’re supporting and the children they’re impacting.

The team also helped begin work on a wall to support the security of the Church’s campus and was there to see them trained on using the new brick machine–a long anticipated project finally producing bricks! The team encouraged The Church in Rwanda, was encouraged by The Church in Rwanda and returned to report that The Church in Rwanda is alive and well, is engaged in transforming works in 60 congregations throughout the country and our efforts and investments produce significant human ROI (Return on Investment)!


Rwanda 2011, HERE WE COME!

A team is traveling to Kigali, Rwanda in June  2011.  Service project for this June will include building a Permanent Brick Fence for the Kigali-Remera property using the newly acquired Hydraform Machine.

A new Kigali city law requires all properties to be fenced using cement blocks or baked clay bricks.   The new regulations obligate the EFCR to remove the current fence (a well established hedge) and replace it with a permanent fence.  In an unanticipated move, the city ordered the hedge to be removed in November 2008, ahead of provision being in place for a permanent replacement fence.  Until a permanent fence is built, the property remains vulnerable to intruders and theft.  The Kigali-Remera property contains the EFCR office, a medical clinic, the Remera church building, a preschool and a cyber-cafe.  The estimated cost is $15,000.

No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.  …the LORD will be your Everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.
—Isaiah 60:18-19

We will keep you posted on what’s to come and future events.
