2019 Easter Offering
North American Friends have been sending missionaries to Africa for the last 117 years. It started with Kenya in 1902, then Burundi in 1934 and Rwanda in 1986. The number of missionary units (singles, married couples, and families) that have gone is upwards of 120.
How many Friends missionary units are in Africa now? As far as we know, only two. One of those serves in Rwanda with EFM. They are Brad, Chelsea, Sarai, and Gideon Carpenter. What does the low number of missionary units in Africa tell us? (more information at friendsmission.com)
More often than not Friends missionaries have landed among people who live in poverty. This has certainly been true in Africa. Over these many years missionaries have felt compelled to start schools, orphanages, hospitals, micro-businesses, and churches to minister to the whole person. The constant challenge has been how to help people in such a way that they actually emerge from poverty and become fully alive to God, to one another, to themselves, and to the places the Creator has made for them. In other words, how can they flourish for the glory of God in all the relationships that are part of life? Money, programs, and institutions in themselves are not the answer.
During the last fifteen years or so Rwanda has been a training ground for EFM missionaries and African Friends leaders in what can be called “Whole-Life Discipleship.” The Navigators have been our teachers and coaches in a method called, “Discipling for Development.” We often shorten the name to “D for D.” This approach to making disciples of Jesus Christ has been gathering momentum and is now spreading to Burundi and the Congo. We see God the Father using it to conform people into the image of His Son and to also carry out the Great Commission in Rwanda and beyond.
NEW EXHIBIT TO OPEN IN MAY
