Jessica has been coordinating a life skills curriculum called WHY WAIT? since 2012. It is based on Biblical principles and Jessica also works in a youth camp ministry called 3D Christian Camps, the 3 ‘D’s’ standing for ‘Discover’, ‘Decide’ and ‘Do it’, as that is their desire for the camp participants.
Rwanda Since the genocide of 1994-95, restoring, restructuring and privatising the economy have been the emphasis of the last decade. The government has made great strides to excise ethnicity from politics and society. It has full freedom of religion, with 89% of the population identifying themselves with Christianity.

“In just a few days we will be heading out for Forma’Camp 2017 and I’d like to ask you to keep us in your prayers. Most of the staff will leave for the campgrounds this Saturday (Aug 12th) and the campers will arrive on Monday. Camp will then end on Aug 22nd for the campers and the staff will head home the day after them. Can I ask you to pray for us during this time? There are regularly last minute changes with campers and staff, but just pray that this camp would go smoothly, that it would be a time of joy and also depth as youth come together, study God’s word, share in small groups, have fun… Pray also for Patrick, as it will be his first time to direct a camp.”

“Juliette (my friend, language helper and translator) and I have been visiting Vocational Training Centres (VTCs) to hear WHY WAIT? lessons being taught… As a guest, I am regularly given the opportunity to speak. With Juliette’s help in translating, I asked them what they thought the most important decision to make in life was. They gave good replies, but I told them that I thought there was an even more important one, which was to decide whether we would follow Jesus or decide to live our own lives. I mentioned how just knowing about the fact that Jesus died on the cross wasn’t enough… After we finished, the pastor then asked the sewing students if any of them wanted to give their life to Jesus and one of the girls did! Yes God had much bigger plans than I did when visiting that VTC!” Praise God for this confession of faith and pray that this student would become a faithful disciple of Christ. Pray for similar opportunities in Jessica’s work.

“Easter fell just after the week of commemoration [of the Genocide] but still during the period that took so many lives in this country 23 years ago. This year I joined ‘Walk To Remember’. Diane, a friend who teaches the same Sunday School class that I do in our church, was one of the two young adults to share their testimonies… God protected her and her sister [during the Genocide] and put people in their way to help and care for them. Please pray for them and many like them during this time.”
