a morning of 31st march, 14 people among which 13 were GBU members got baptized, after baptism and church service we had a holly communion where we shared bread and juice as symbols of the body of Christ that was broken for us and juice as the blood of Christ that was shed for us.
in the evening we had another fellowship where people shared their testimonies of how they mate Christ and why they decided to claim it to the world through baptism.
My name is IDUFASHE EDDY. I am born again and I fellowship from GBU Huye campus. I am grateful to God who gave me an opportunity to hear, know, understand and believe his saving Gospel when I reached in the campus through GBU. I used to think I was saved because I used to attend church every Sunday and I had been baptized while in high school but I was not really saved until I understood what salvation means and God offered me his grace to believe the gospel which I believed and became a new creature. After getting saved, I remained with a task of getting baptized again. But God convinced me to be truly baptized again for what I had done was not true baptism since I was not a true believer. I was baptized on 18th as proclamation to the world that I am no longer a slave to fear that I am a new creature, have died with Christ, buried with him, was raised with him and I am sited at his right hand spiritually. It was a eat experience and I am grateful to God and to GBU-Huye executive committed as well as Pastor of assemblies of God, who baptized me. To God alone be the Glory forever and ever. Amen
Since Friday,16th to Sunday 18th, March 2018, The GBUs of UR-Nyagatare campus and East African University Nyagatare campus together had a discipleship training program.
The training was organized to help student understand different issues in a christian life so that they may become good disciples of Jesus Christ. This training happens yearly. This year it brought together around 35 students from the two campuses. In this training, two students: Naome and George (cfr. picture below) accepted Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior.
The training covered many topics including discipleship and it cost, devotional life and the lordship of Christ in one’s life, Spiritual disciplines and sanctification. Focusing on the great commission of every disciple, we also had a session on mission awareness as we consider our own campus and the focus of our GBU in this semester which is Evangelism.
In between sessions, we also had fun interacting with one another.It was so refreshing.
We thank God for his work among us. Please keep us in your as we reach out to our fellow students with the good news of salvation. Which is also the focus of this second semester at UR-Nyagatare campus.
Thanks to all the participants, facilitators and supporters may the Lord bless you!
