Bishop Butare Reports: USA Visit and Plans for Butare Diocese

Dearly beloved of the Lord,

I just want to try and CAPTURE the main THRUST of my USA VISIT;

-To Visit some of our Long-time friends…especially from the Anglican Church..who used to be under the spiritual and shepherded Oversight of Rwanda…but who have now largely been recently weaned to the 

Foley Beach Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America - ACNA

Newly formed ANGLICAN PROVINCE OF NORTH AMERICA(ACNA). http://anglicanchurch.net/

The Objective was to Continue to strengthen the spiritual Ties of friendship & brotherhood..as they Transition to the New Leadership and Episcopal Oversight….Sharing Prayer needs, Sharing Celebrations of what God has done in our Lives and Our Churches at the Two divides………

-I began in the MidWest..where we have some Upcoming Partnership with CANON WILLIAM BEASLEY of the ACNA..but who has a special Ministry called the “GREENHOUSE 

Canon William Beasley Greenhouse Movement

MOVEMENT”…and whose main aim is to plant and multiply Congregations..across the CITIES in America..beginning in the Midwest…but more specifically…starting new CONGREGATIONS at the University Campuses!!!!

-The fact that God has endowed me with a gift of working with Young People especially The University CAMPUS YOUTHS….I had been Invited to SPEAK  at the INAUGURATION of  new CONGREGATIONS in a number of Campuses. This included but was not limited to:

-Carthage College(Chicago) https://www.carthage.edu/chicago/

-DuPage College(Chicago) http://www.cod.edu/

Initially I had spoken at the Campuses of Northwestern{Twice} http://www.northwestern.edu/

Northwestern University

Wheaton College{Twice}http://www.wheaton.edu/

Wheaton College

2.The other Ministry Dimension that I have with the GREENHOUSE MOVEMENT {To the effect of saying…having a SEEDLING BED OF PLANTS TO GROW AND MULTIPLY}……………………..We have a shared Ministry called RECIPROCAL MISSION & MINISTRY…whereby William and his Team bring out to Rwanda..or another Country in East Africa…especially KENYA to Preach..and also listen and Learn from the Work of Ministry in Churches there…as well as Visit and Minister on the Campuses of the Universities and High schools!!!!

-The same happens when I visit AMERICA…..!!!!!

3. I was able to visit some CONGREGATIONS in North CAROLINA namely;

1.The CHURCH of the APOSTLES…In HOPE MILLS, NC led by DEACON VANCE {Acting}  http://www.tcota.org/20160522_200633

 

 

 

 

 

2.The Church of the RESURRECTION in FUQUAY-VARINA, NC led by PASTOR BILL STEINBERG  http://ctr-nc.org/20160524_024625

 

  3.The Church of the Ascension…in the same area…by PASTOR MAURICE “MO” HAGAR  http://www.ascendwake.org/home.html
20160524_024350
 4.The ALL SAINTS Church in DURHAM…led by Rev.Thomas KORTUS http://allsaints-chd.org/

I was able to Encourage them greatly as I brought graphic STORIES of transformation..and Changes in Rwanda..which just survived GENOCIDE some 20 Years ago…and How by God’s GRACE ..and by the Power of PRAYER….Most People have been able to FORGIVE one another…RECONCILE…Reharmonize…and are now able to forge ahead..together as they RE-BUILD one another’s’ Lives and their respective Communities……
 -No wonder that RWANDA is currently CODE-NAMED; The ‘SINGAPORE” of Africa…given;

-The stellar Economic Performance of TWO digits growth for almost the last 15 Years!!!

-The Policies that have made Rwanda..the best Nation for INVESTING in Africa according to UN DEVELOPMENT INDICATORS, usually a programme run by UNDP

-The Nation that keeps CORRUPTION at TOLERANCE ZERO

-The ClEANEST Country in Africa..One of them in the World!!!

-The Country with 65% WOMEN REPRESENTATION in Parliament…All these would never have happened without a PEOPLE whose Relationships….and Political Landscape are STABLE & SUSTAINABLE!!!

-Recently…RWANDA was rated the 5th MOST SECURE Country in the WORLD…{GLOBAL SOCIAL MEDIA}

I besides…shared our Major MASTER PLANNING NEEDS in the next 5 years…which include but not limited to:

1. A STANDARD DIOCESAN TECHNICAL & VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTER………[Offering  the SKILLS Of CONSTRUCTION/CARPENTRY/TAILORING/COMPUTER CLASSES:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::.
