IMG_0703IMG_0687

On Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd April, GBU-UR-Nyagatare had a HWEC workshop, HWEC stands for Healing the Wounds from Ethnic Conflicts, HWEC workshops are under Discipleship program, GBUR wants its members to receive the full benefits of the cross, among which the inner healing and the power of forgiveness and reconciliation.

We were so blessed to discover God’s plan on people’s relationship and how we fit in that plan in spite of all our problems whose roots go all the way to Adam the first man on the day he choose to disobey his creator, God. From this workshop we have come to realize the role of the church in God’s design for human relationship and what to do in such a broken society, which is to run to the only one place in the whole world we can find true rest, at the cross where Christ bared them all. In addition to learning, we also had the opportunity to experience the power of forgiving, standing in the gap, and casting it all on Christ for total healing and restoration.

We are so grateful to our facilitators: Philemeon Niyomugabo, Gatera Anicet, Niyomwungeli Jean Peruse and Mukantabana Eduige who worked tirelessly to deliver the whole content in such a short time. Through your sacrifice, our heart were healed from different issues in our past, now we thank God that he also cares for our broken hearts and is always willing to heal us whenever we come to him with a willing heart.

On Sunday March 12, it was a blessing to have sister Erin at UR-Nyagatare campus, Erin is a missionary from USA, with a heart for reaching people with disabilities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  In her teaching, she showed us from the bible how all people are the equal before God be with disability or not. She also showed us how those people with disabilities are as precious to God as every one else. she showed also how those people who are rejected by the society need  church’s love more, how they need the gospel and she portrayed different approaches to adopt while reaching people with disabilities.

This was new thing in our ears, because it’s not something you can hear about in many churches, so most of us were in the dark concerning reaching and discipling people with disabilities.  We thank God, for opening our eyes to this privilege. May the LORD help us to consider people with disabilities in our daily living.
