Our main focus is to reach out to people with the Love of God through Jesus Christ so that they can experience a long lasting relationship with Him. This has taken us from Healing and Reconciliation ministry; helping church leaders, returnees from exile, genocide perpetrators and survivors, inmates go through memorable healing and reconciliation workshops, to church planting. We have so far planted 2 churches, one in Kigali City and the other is Runda in Kamonyi district located in Southern province. We still want to see more churches planted and God willing plant another one. Another area of focus is the youth, we have been organizing annual youth conferences and still want to see this continue in the future.
Additional care includes working with the poor population of the community to move from poverty to a more sustainable life. Our ministry helps train on community development with about 8 groups, the groups ranging from 8 people to 26. We see them growing emotionally and plan to sustain doing more trainings for them. They are trained in how to resolve conflict, save, how to create business, how to work in a group. They train how to create a vision for where they want to grow in their development and teach them the tools to get there.
In 2018 we started a kindergarten and they have watched it grow from 6 children to 36. COVID created setbacks, but the school is still running.
When we left Uganda in 1995, for us it was more than coming back to our mother land. Having been in ministry we felt the call to come back home to a wounded country and start a ministry that will help in the healing of our people. Eventually we got involved with African Evangelistic Enterprise (AEE) a local Christian organization in the department of healing and reconciliation. It is here that we realized that God had called us to a much bigger ministry than we had thought. We were privileged to facilitate healing and reconciliation workshops for church leaders around the country. Along side the healing ministry we also maintained church planting.
Both Esperance and I grew up in Uganda. We got married on December 22, 1990 in Masaka Uganda. God has blessed us with 4 children Byiringiro (Hope) Byuma (M 31), Patience Ingabire (F 29), Rehema (Mercy) Umukunzi (F 24) and Asifiwe Cyuzu Ram (M 23). Served as Pastors before moving to Rwanda in 1995.
