Bugesera Community Asks for a Church

ABOVE IS THE CHURCH – ALMOST DONE!

Rwanda Children Education Foundation purchased an eight-acre plot of land in Bugesera in October 2020.

We started building 12 housing units for our families who needed a place to live. We completed construction of these houses in April 2022.

The contractor who oversees the building held a time of prayer for a half hour each morning before starting work. The people in the community began attending this prayer time.

FIRST THE FOUNDATION, FRAME THE WALLS THEN THE ROOF

BRICKS ARRIVE AND THE WALLS GO UP

Because of the people’s interest, the contractor started bringing pastors to Bugesera on Sundays to hold an outdoor service.

Soon the surrounding community was asking for a permanent church building.  

As we shared this request with a New Hampshire Church family, they decided to provide the resources to construct the frame of the church including the roof.

Soon we had enough money to brick in the walls. An additional generous donation provided the money for windows, doors and interior finishes.

Church services are being held each Sunday, and the number of attendees is growing. There is a children’s choir and an adult choir. Many people have received Christ and want to be baptized.

We have more to do. Step by step it will be accomplished.

 

RCEF’s mission is to give hope and bright futures to vulnerable children and youth in Rwanda.
