East Africa 2018

Pastor Pascal works in partnership with Pastor Emmanuel Ndolimana, who is the BMI Africa Representative. Pastor Pascal recently became the new President of the Evangelical Baptist Churches of Rwanda. Both of these extraordinary men have been training BMI materials in many countries of Africa! Here is an excerpt from his recent email report:

“Greetings to you in Jesus’ name!

I am glad to be able to share with you the report of the training that we have done in Rwanda. In total, we have trained 247 pastors and key church leaders in 4 locations from 14 denominations.

Below is the list of the 4 locations and the number of participants per location:

  • 72 in Bumba, Karongi District – Rwanda
  • 61 in Musasa, Rutsiro District, Rwanda
  • 52 in Kivumu, Rutsiro District, Rwanda
  • 62 in Rugerero, Rubavu Distict, Rwanda

The 7 Steps of Christian Living materials have been appreciated much by the people that we trained, they found the materials very applicable and beneficial to churches in their communities. This training was possible because of the facilitation from SMM by Emmanuel Ndolimana. The need is greater than the resources we have had, otherwise, we would have trained many spiritually thirst and hungry church leaders if we had enough resources. It’s our hope that if God provides more resources next year, much will be covered.

As the New President of the Evangelical Baptist Churches of Rwanda, I want to recommend the use of BMI materials in all our churches nationwide because training is one of the greatest needs that we have currently. We already have 7 steps available translated into our local language (Kinyarwanda), but we need to get the rest of your materials as well. How can you help us to achieve this?”

Historic Training:

Last February, seminary leaders and professors from all over East Africa came to Nairobi, Kenya, to hear about the BMI training and materials.  The response was enthusiastic, and coming up this February 2019, five seminaries are sending two representatives each to be trained in the 7 Steps of Christian Living by Jonathan Burnham.

We also brought together Christian leaders and pastors from six African countries for training in Rwanda!
