October 2010 marked the second anniversary of FamilyLife’s partnership with Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini and the Anglican Church of Rwanda.
The partnership has provided a taste of FamilyLife to churches in five of Rwanda’s Anglican dioceses and begun initial training to develop HomeBuilders groups in several churches. Through scaled-down versions of the Weekend to Remember getaways, one-topic marriage seminars, and HomeBuilders leader trainings, FamilyLife is working to develop national leadership for the ministry.
A team finished translating the first HomeBuilders study, Building Your Marriage, into Kinyrwanda. Pray for follow-through on final contextualization, editing and proofing.
Two solid HomeBuilders groups are meeting in Kigali. Pray that the couples in the group would develop God-honoring marriages that begin to minister to families in Rwanda.
Pray for the identification of key volunteer couples who would nurture the work of FamilyLife in Rwanda.
Pray for the continuing work of FamilyLife in Butare and Kibungo dioceses. Pray for consistent HomeBuilders groups to develop in these cities.
