Rwanda Since the genocide of 1994, 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.

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.”

“This is a rather unusual time that has brought changes to many people’s lives. You can imagine that most people here, and probably in many places in this world, don’t have savings that can hold them through a season like this! All “non-essential” services are no longer permitted. The huge number of motorcycle taxis can no longer carry passengers. They may only offer delivery services. What about the people who used to stand at given places with a shovel or other tool, waiting for a truck to come by and give them a job for the day? The Cabinet has extended the existing measures for an additional two weeks taking us to the end of Sunday, April 19th and after that, we don’t know yet. Additionally to this already particular time, today [7th April] marks the beginning of the genocide commemoration period in Rwanda that took place 26 years… Please pray for the people for whom this time is really challenging, that they would have the necessary food, water, and other basics; and that I would know how and with whom to share.”

“As I am writing, Forma’Camp 2018, which gathered 45 campers, is behind us. God in His grace used this camp once again to speak to young adults. Here is some of their feedback: “The greatest thing that the camp taught me is in my relationship with Jesus Christ and concerning this, I will not say I learned, rather I was transformed from a religious Christian to a disciple of Christ. I understood that Jesus did not call me just for me to be saved but to be a saving source for others who have not been saved yet; that I am a light; a light does not shine in the light but rather in the darkness.”… I would also appreciate your prayers…that God would give my heart peace and total trust in Him. I have been reminded of the importance of remaining in the vine; in Christ… I can “fake it” by my own strength for a while but it won’t last… Thank you for your continued prayers and support!”
