HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The City on a Hill
For the last two years, Come Away Missions has partnered with Bibleway Baptist Church and friends in Rwanda, Africa to carry out a dream known as “City On Hill Project” (Matthew 5:14-16). We are building a large facility that will house a medical clinic and a worship center. This project is literally on the top of a hill overlooking villages in Rwanda who need both our physical and spiritual help. Rwanda is called “the Land of a Thousand Hills,” because of its gorgeous multitudes of hills and it is absolutely beautiful!
So far, over $100,000 has been raised, and the building project is progressing smoothly. So much has already been completed!
We are so excited about this coming work, and we appeal to all our friends and donors to help us raise $13,000 for this next phase.
The Water Fund Project
Read about the current water conditions from our crew medical team:
We were in Gahara today teaching about different waterborne diseases and how to prevent them. Of course the biggest problem is contaminated drinking water. We taught on the proper way to boil your water if you don’t own a filter. At the end of the lecture a kind man told us how much he appreciated the teaching, however he doesn’t think that many people will change. He explained that many families have to travel 2x/day down a steep mountain and back to fetch water. It is physically exhausting and time consuming. When they get back they don’t have the time or patience to build a fire to boil the water and clean it properly.
I was curious about this process so this afternoon they took us down the mountain to fetch water and back up again. It took about 2 hours and it was ROUGH to say the least! I gained more insight into their lives today than I have ever before. We’ve been working with Jean Baptist to come up with a better solution to this tragedy. Stay tuned on how you can help Gahara stay happy and healthy by providing more accessible, more convenient, clean water opportunities.
