Tuesday, God opened a new door. We had finished the two days of teaching ten church leaders in the Rwankuba sector in the Karongi District. One of the church leaders, Innocent, is the leader of his village. The oldest refugee camp in Rwanda is located in that village. We asked him if he could help us to knock on the door of the Kiziba Camp. We drove up to the entrance and after some discussion and a phone call to the president of the Kiziba Camp we were allowed to enter. Almost immediately, God led us to Mukiza Chiristophe, one of the twenty church leaders in a population of nineteen to twenty thousand. Most people in the camp are not Christians. “Do you see our situation? Why do you talk to me about God?”
Mukiza invited us into his very small home where we met his father, mother, and sister. His father thought he was about ninety years old and had been a Christian for seventy years. After Mukiza learned about Rwanda Challenge he explained that conditions in the Church in the refugee camp was worse than in the villages and towns. We were invited to come and teach the church leaders in the Kiziba Camp. We are trusting God for the resources and hope to return in February or June, 2013.
We offer praise to the God who opens doors.

Study Bible. As Innocent walked him
through the KSB, Mukiza was increasingly
amazed at each new resource in this
Bible. This is his first opportunity to study
the Bible in detail. Mukiza with his father and mother.
