Imagine receiving the perfect gift just in time for Christmas. For Rwanda pastors this was a reality. They did not receive riches and gold, they received something far more precious: The Word of God.
All of the pastors were in a very festive mood. To see all of them in their graduation gowns was an incredible and humbling experience. Seeing how they overcome their challenges and never complain about their circumstances is a true inspiration.
God has done uncountable miracles for the ministry. It is extremely humbling to see what God does through the ministry. Pray with us that God will continue to build His Kingdom through the pastors that complete their Harvesters training.
Thanks to loyal donors it was possible to hand out more than 250 Bibles to pastors who graduated from the Harvesters program. By God’s grace each of these pastors planted three brand new churches. Now there are churches where there once were none.
The Rwanda government forbids the planting of new churches and as a result thousands of churches were closed last year. These pastors are still persevering and are taking the risk of planting new churches.
Please pray for these pastors and their congregations as they face uncertainty. It is only through God that one can get true serenity. Pray that these pastors will always seek God and find their peace in Him.
I am reminded of Jesus’ words in John 16:33 that says “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Please pray with us that every Rwanda pastor will take heart as they face their challenges. For Jesus has already overcome every problem that they might face.
