Last Year Many Generous People Helped Us...
 Build Great Buildings in Rwanda

Jabana PlaygroundJabana ChurchIn Jabana, there is a great Church/training centre which is used on a daily basis for all kinds of training and church services, and a beautiful duplex which is home for 8 orphans and a widow on each side.  Also, the playground is very appreciated and well used by hundreds of children!
Cyuru Church and Playground

In Cyuru, the Church/training centre is over half completed, the duplex is almost complete, and the playground is a great joy for all the children in the area who have never seen anything like it.

Gatsata WOL StepsIn Gatsata, we owne a Church/training centre, and a property that is very close by that has a few buildings on it.  Renovations were started in November and are ongoing to get these houses ready for orphans and a widow, an office and a medical room.  We officially started the "Medical Mission" in Gatsata Medical RoomNovember, in this needy area where there are 20,000 people and no hospital or medical clinic. A nurse has been hired part time and she has been doing a great job helping local people.
Last Year You Helped Us...

Last weekend, the Canadian team had a very successful crusade in Gitarama!

Here are three of the children
