We are so excited to tell you about an incredible opportunity for ministry. We have been invited by Robert Lewis, (former pastor of Fellowship Bible Church, Little Rock, author of Men’s Fraternity, Raising a Modern Day Knight), to join him and four other marriage leadership couples in training twenty-five Rwandan pastors and their wives in the area of marriage enrichment. These pastors will then be equipped to take this training back to their churches and begin the exciting work of building strong marriages and families.
The country of Rwanda has been through extremely difficult times. The genocide in 1994 left approximately 800,000 people dead in a 90-day period. There is an open door right now to come alongside this country and make a difference for generations to come. As we all know, strong homes make strong nations. The Rwandan government is ready, these pastors are ready, and we are ready. However, we cannot do this alone.
How would you like to invest in something that will help shape a country for years to come? We need people who have a heart for marriage ministry and a desire to be a part of this opportunity to join us as ministry partners for this trip. Here’s how:
1. We are asking for 200 people who will commit to pray for this effort. We realize that aggressive ministry such as this will be met by opposition by the enemy. Satan does not want God’s truth to spread, so spiritual warfare will be elevated against us. We need people continually lifting us up in prayer.
2. We must raise $7000 in financial support to pay the expenses of the trip. The airline tickets are $2500 each. The lodging, meals, and other travel expenses of this two-week trip bring it to the $7000 total for the two of us. We believe that God will move the hearts of people to invest in this window of opportunity. The deadline for our Rwanda Team to turn in our money is December 1, 2012.
We have created a video, which gives more detailed information about the trip. Just go to http://youtu.be/U2gG8uKZsFY to view the video and to hear our hearts about this incredible opportunity.
