In 2 weeks, I will greet a missions team coming from Taylor University into Kigali. I will brief them on major cultural issues and integration protocol for Rwanda. I will help their choir adjust the pronunciation as they will be singing in Kinyarwanda, the local language. They will visit my school as part of their tour to sing to the students and help paint a world map on the outside wall.
I am very excited to help host this team, and we are asking for your support.
As you can imagine, a trip like this requires tremendous prayer and financial support, particularly during an economic downturn. The team of 18 must raise $61,000. This will cover all our transportation, food, housing, and materials. If you can support us in a financial way, the entire team would be extremely grateful.

Their Story :
In 2009, Taylor took its first team to Rwanda. On June 11-29, 2011, we are going back to Rwanda with fifteen nervous and energetic students and three faculty ready to share the redemptive love of Christ. We will be working in Kigali, Rwanda with ALARM (African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries). ALARM exists to empower the African church by developing and equipping leaders with the skills and tools needed to nurture and deepen the Christian faith for the transformation and reconciliation of African communities. We will be presenting a conference to Rwandan youth on social justice, seminars to pastors and community leaders on God’s call for Biblical reconciliation, as well as providing training on microfinance, developing spiritual and educational programs at two schools run by ALARM, and volunteering at an AIDS hospital and orphanage. In addition, we will be working with World Gospel Mission (WGM) in Kampala, Uganda. We will be partnering with students from Kampala International University, working on a variety of mission projects throughout the city.
No mission trip, no matter how well conceived and planned, would be successful without prayer. Please pray that our team will think, act, and feel more systematically about social justice, and mightily promote the redemption of Christ and the power of reconciliation to the people of Rwanda and Uganda. Pray that we will be humble servants and an encouragement to all who work with ALARM and WGM. Finally, please pray that we will be able to raise the financial support for this international justice mission trip.
In the midst of AIDS, poverty, and oppression, we earnestly anticipate seeing what God will do in the lives of our team and the people of Rwanda and Uganda.
