Jessica serves with the AIM French-speaking office as Communications Manager.

WHY WAIT? is based on Biblical principles and Jessica also worked 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. From 2018 until finishing in Rwanda she was also involved in mobilising for mission by helping to facilitate Kairos courses.

In 2020, Jessica finished her assignment in Rwanda and married her husband Eric. She is currently living in the Netherlands and serving with the AIM French-speaking office particularly in communication and translation work.

As part of her work for the AIM France office, Jessica Goldschmidt-Habyarimana was able to connect with some French-speaking participants at the online ‘Into Africa’ event earlier in the spring. Please pray that God will keep calling French-speaking Christians into cross-cultural mission through AIM France. 

Jessica Goldschmidt-Habyarimana began working as Communications Manager for AIM France at the beginning of the year, serving alongside Gilles and Myriam Bonvallat in the AIM France office. Please pray for her work as she serves in translation and in encouraging French-speaking supporters in their prayer for AIM and cross-cultural mission.

Praise God for all the 3D Christian Camps camps in Rwanda have done in young people’s lives. Jessica Goldschmidt shares this testimony from a former camp attendee:

“I participated in the camp in 2017 and it was one of the most memorable experiences in my life. I had not expected so much but after completing the camp I was amazed at how wonderful the experience had been. This camp taught me that in my walk with God it is very important to have discipline in everything I do. It also taught me that there is always something I can do or contribute in the kingdom of God.  

I also learnt that God always expects us to have a serving heart towards others. Afterwards, my friends and I saw the need for a Bible study at church and we immediately started one which has been going since then. I thank God because we have been able to learn the Word of God and start applying it in our daily lives.”

Jessica is currently in the Netherlands on Home Assignment. She has recently married Eric, who is studying at Bible College in the Netherlands. “We are thankful to God that Eric has finished his first year at Tyndale Theological Seminary successfully. It was an intense year of studying. Jessica, on her side, had to say goodbyes to many dear friends after having spent eight years in Rwanda… we are now standing at the start of a yet-to-be-discovered road in front of us that we will travel together. What will this journey look like? Eric has two years remaining of his studies at Tyndale… Jessica still needs to see what the next step will be for her. Will she stay in full-time ministry, and if yes, where would God have her serve and use her gifts? Will she look for a secular job for these two years? Will she work part-time in both fields? Please pray for clarity and that God would open the right doors.”
