Dear Mission Partners,
Tonight our Gospel Crusade began here in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. This is the city where the Rwandan genocide began 20 years ago. The scars of that tragedy still remain and the memories are vivid in the minds of the people. The spiritual ground seems a bit tougher here than usual. It reminds me a little bit of our crusade in Gulu, Uganda where Joseph Kony had conducted his reign of terror. Yet, in these places, where unimaginable evil has prevailed, there seems to be a special grace that “abounds all the more.” I believe that the Lord has sent us here for a very specific reason. We will see an extraordinary outpouring of the Holy Spirit’s power and love this week.
