The work of the SDA Reform Movement reached Rwanda in 2003 through social media, not long after the horrid massacres of genocide in 1994 which had led to the death of more than a million people in only 90 days. By the grace of God and hard work, the brethren in Rwanda have been moving forward.
In God’s strength, missionaries from Rwanda have taken the message to surrounding countries such as Burundi, DR Congo, North Kivu, South Kivu, and Uganda. The Kinyarwanda language, spoken by an estimated 30 million people throughout these nations, has facilitated the work of our brethren in reaching 3,000 souls so far.
Among our members, only 10% can speak foreign languages—and the instruction given by Jesus, our Saviour, is that we are to reach every language on our planet. John the Revelator describes: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people” ().
That is why the Rwanda Union decided to build a missionary school to help all these countries to send out young people—not only for spiritual education but also with English courses to help them open the Spirit of Prophecy books for themselves and grow their skills in missionary work. Souls are being won to the Saviour every day in central Africa. The increase in missionary work has resulted in an increased need for trained workers to complete the commission given by the Saviour. “With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world!”—Education, p. 271.
Dear brethren and sisters, we appeal for your financial support in this project so that the mission given by Christ who died for us may be accomplished. Our world is changing day by day and we don’t know how long we will be able to work with all the climate disasters and wars everywhere. People are dying every day and God will ask every one of us what we did to save souls and each one will need to respond.
That is why we come to each one to ask, please remember our missionary school project for the Central African countries, and thank you!
Your brethren from the Rwanda Union Mission
