Sponsorship, Expansion, Babies and Churches Monthly Update.

Please allow me to express my gratitude to you for your gracious gift to this ministry. Each month, I write thank you letters to each person who gives, but I stop to wonder if they realize the impact they make, and the appreciation I have for each person who invests in this ministry, and in the lives impacted. Please know. You matter. Your gift makes a difference. Lives are changed. God’s goodness is displayed. This month, the school year ended, ending...

A Message from a Local Pastor

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...

Bye, Bye, Cold Nights

As I walk through our preschool during aquatic life week, our 3-year class is hearing the story of the miracle of the disciples catching an abundance of fish. The 4-year-olds are “fishing” in basins of water using magnetic fish and poles, and 5-year olds are watching videos of ocean life, as they’ve never been exposed to these creatures or their pictures and videos. I see children laughing, learning and engaged. I see the way their teachers love them, and I...

We Got Our Permit

Thank you for your financial gift to this ministry, and thank you for your prayers. We have a building permit! Eight months of waiting, praying, and petitioning were finally rewarded with permission to build our new facility. Baby Manzi has gone home. This little one’s recovering is only by the hand of God. Though he went home this weekend, his mother keeps me updated, and tells me that anyone who sees him, sees a miracle. These are our biggest answers to prayer this...

Rwanda Independence Day and Liberation Day

Here in Rwanda, today, July 1st, is Independence Day, and July 4th is Liberation Day, the day the 1994 genocide ended. Ordinarily, July 4th would be a day of celebration with presidential ceremonies, concerts, and military parades; however, as of today, we have returned to a semi-lockdown status. All schools, churches, restaurants, and non-essential businesses are closed. While in the USA, over 40% have been vaccinated; here we are seeing the highest number of cases in Rwanda to date. While the...

A Bountiful Harvest & An Open Door

(May, 2021)Our Farmers were able to harvest 1,700 pounds of beans this month, and plan to harvest their maize and sorghum this next month. They are thrilled at how this project is allowing them to farm to provide for their families nearly year round. Our preschool is in its second semester, and the children and their parents are loving the education the students are receiving. We have purchased an acre of land to begin building. We have obtained our land title,...

LOVE ALIVE INTERNATIONAL’S PURPOSE

Love Alive International would fail to adequately convey the love of Christ if we failed to share the ultimate message of Christ’s love in his plan of Salvation for mankind. In fact, were it not for the ultimate Gospel message, Love Alive International would not exist. While humanitarian efforts are a major channel for demonstrating Christ’s love, the Salvation message is the primary gift of love from God to man. Any gift, however great or small, given through Love Alive, will...

The Golden Rule:

Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31 It’s the Golden rule, right? We’ve heard it since we were children, seen it written on plaques, and recited it to others. These are the words of Jesus to us, his followers about how we are to treat each other. Often it is easy to dismiss the needs of those whom we have never met face to face.  It’s understandable. We may not feel a personal relationship with them. We...

LOVE ALIVE RWANDA

“The Land of a Thousand Hills,” Rwanda is a beautiful country of lush green hillsides dotted with mud homes and small farms.  Small enough to fit into the state of Tennessee four times, Rwanda is the second smallest African nation. While a very small country, she is densely populated with nearly 12 million citizens. Fifty percent of Rwandans are under the age of 18. While often recognized as a country marked by a horrendous genocide in 1994, Rwanda is so much...
