Dear brethren warmest greetings in the name of our
loving heavenly father. I'm humbled to present to you
the good work that took place in Rwanda.
(1) I was able to travel 15th thursday nght (December)
and able to serve in seminars on Friday at Nyamagabe,
Saturday at Huye, and Kugosozi on Sunday.
(2) The total number of people served was 480 in all the
(3) These were the notable Sisters and Brothers who
helped brother Elijah in the arrangements. Br. Ivan
Ngabire mobilized and offered a venue and ps system at
Nyamagabe teaching and crusade. He was the chief
interpreter in all the seminars, he was of much
importance to the truth work. He offered 100 copies of
the four page brochure in French. Sr. Kyomugisa Helen
was paramount Kugosozi healing center she provided 50
copies of French for the ransom studies. She provided
transport for me and Elijah to this center. Sr. Irene
Baliharigata helped much to link our seminars to the
authorities in the areas we served. Much thanks to
Karuhanga from Bukira providing 70 copies of French
study material during the seminar at Bukwira Our serving
was a success, however we met so many challenges as
-- There poor decision making for the happening of this
truth work. It took long to agree upon what to do.
-- There was lack a clear coordination among the
concerned parties. Communication was not very clear from
a far and near.
-- The goverment bill in the Republic of Rwanda
concerning Religious matter and church setting was a
large threat towards our success. We served under threat
surrounded by many by CIDs and security officers asking
who we are? Why do we identify ourselves with original
churches. This I answered briefly that we are a non
denominational movement in the names of Bible Students
Movement. It was not yet clear to many but we managed to
serve. We were quaesioned that next time we have to
inform police to seek permission.
-- Rwanda is still sufering the genocide impacts of
1990. Much pressure came from other chuches and
politicians. We thank God we were able to over come
succesfully. Much thanks to our God.
-- They said we don't see any wrong with DPA and its
interepretation the "Inspector General of Police" and
recommended to seek registration of this ministry with
the government and he said they will give us one year
operation permit as they watch what is going on.
All in people need this teaching and appreciated but
given the situation of the country the progress
faces many challenges. More will come as time allows me.
Cause for truth, Br. Laban
