Graceful reminders of God’s Goodness

Thank you for your kind gifts to this ministry and for your prayers. You are such a grand part of what we are able to do here in Rwanda. This month seemed to be full of little graceful reminders of God’s goodness in allowing us to impact lives here. We continue to care for an abandoned baby boy who is always smiling. We visited one of our partner churches whose church we were able to help renovate and re-open several years ago....

A Home in the Mountains

Dear Friends, The month of January has been full with God’s grace in ministry.

Our hearts are full with two babies we are caring for. Noella was found the day after Christmas, while Alvin came to us just after the new year. Both are lovely...

Monthly Ministry Update

Thank you for your gifts to this ministry. Your prayers and your giving make possible our mission to Share God’s love and salvation.

Focus on Love

Happy Valentine’s Month. As I consider the focus on love this month and reflect on ten years in Rwanda, I think back to the reason Love Alive was begun. I John 4 tells us that God is Love and that all who are in Him will share this love. When God created the world and man in it, He desired a relationship with us. When man chose to sin against Him, in His love and mercy, he made the way...

Partner Churches

During the month of May, I was able to visit 3 of our partner churches. Visiting the Agape Church of Pastor Patrick is always a blessing. Four years ago, we partnered with this church to build. It seemed a long process at times with many delays, but what a blessing to see this church opened for 6 months now, and worshiping, growing, discipling and baptizing. There were more than 100 adults plus children on the day I visited. Patrick is a...
