A semester with evangelism on focus at UR-Nyagatare campus

IMG_0740 ROMANS 10:15 b……..As it is written:”How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news”.

Hallelujah!! it’s been a while since we shared our news and how God is being faithful to us in his work of reconciling to the world by using us. in the very beginning of this semester two of 2017-2018, GBU-UR-Nyagatare campus decided to focus the whole semester on evangelistic activities. Reaching students on the campus,in a friendly approach. every Monday,5PM, we are meeting, praying for 30 minutes and everyone go to pay a visit to a friend whom he/she prepared that he/she will come for the purpose of reaching him/her with the gospel of Jesus Christ. we want to reach every student on the campus in a strategic way where we seek information per classes and we pray for them then we go out to reach them. And in all these activities, God is being with us in opening doors for us.

we started by having a sermon on “friendship evangelism” on 18th February where our staff Onesphore Hakizimana showed us some strategies of approaching someone in a friendly way. by next day, this is 19th, we started evangelistic activities. thanks God students are accepting the good news, and we are praying so the God may open up their hearts to believe the lord Jesus.

if you are reading this, join us in this prayer and let God do the rest of the job.

thanks

 

Equipping student leaders for the work of ministry

In the weekend of 2-4th February, GBUR organized a national leadership training. It brought together 45 selected GBU leaders from all over the country. The theme was “to equip the saints for the work of ministry.”

In this training student leaders were helped to better understand different aspects of GBUR ministry as an evangelical, interdenominational, and para-church movement. Among the topics covered are GBUR faith statements, principles of action, profile of an agent of Godly transformation as stated in our vision, and the basics of Christian leadership.

In small groups, students were given opportunity to discuss the challenges they face in engaging the university with gospel and the strategies to overcome those challenges.

Judith Uwanziga, vice president of GBU-IPRC-Kigali, when asked three new things she has learned in this training she said: “First, GBU history, it made me realize the value of GBU and what it costed for those who founded this ministry. Second, the continuity of this ministry after the campus, I thought once I finish the college it is over. But now, I know better, I am even going to be mobilizing others that this ministry does not end with our campus time. Third, servant leadership, I thought I just had to fulfill my task on the action plan, but I never considered get involved with the life of members to just serve them. But, now I know that that is the right thing to do since you cannot lead someone without knowing his/her problem. I am there to serve them not for them to serve me.” Asked if her expectations were met, she answered: “Yes, I wanted to know the core values of GBU, its beliefs, how it come to happen and how I can lead in that context. And, all of that was covered. Thank God.”
