Message from the Rev. Geoffrey Rwubusisi - Bishop Elect.
I have been working with African Enterprise
as an evangelist. I have a wide and rich experience in church work. My vision for the church is to work for a new Rwanda whose people
need true love, forgiveness and unity is paramount. The 1994 genocide left behind a shattered and dehumanised people, a wounded,
hurting and bleeding society. The message of reconciliation is very crucial if these people are to live together. As you read these
pages God is at work in Rwanda mending broken relationships. The people are living together going on with their daily chores. Now
you talk about a miracle. Here is a miracle. Rwandans are together, through the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have a ministry of love.
Calvary love can do it. The blood of Jesus Christ not the blood of Hutu or Tutsi will heal the land.
Our children and young people must be given a new beginning. Many lost their
families in the genocide. They are bitter and if we do not act quickly now, the future of Rwanda will be the worse. We need
to rebuild these lives on the biblical values of love, forgiveness, faithfulness and truth. We hope to run youth Camps where we
shall teach these values. We will equip them with life skills and prepare them to fight AIDS. AIDS is a moral problem. The youth
of Rwanda need common sense more than condoms. During our youth camps we will address pertinent issues of identity, friends, love
and sex. Our aim is to create a society of Godly young people.
If Rwanda is to be reconstructed we will need a leadership of integrity. A
need for role models is crucial in all aspects of life, business, politics, family and church. We must build capacity to be able
to handle effectively the work of rebuilding Rwanda.
Rev. Geoffrey Rwubusisi - Bishop Elect.
