His Grace Bishop Innokentios of Bujumbura ( ruling hierarch of the Diocese of Burundi and Rwanda), visited new converts and Clergy men from the Diocese of Burundi and Rwanda. Baptism ceremony was held in Nyamazi river located in Kirehe District in the Eastern Province of Rwanda on 17 August 2014, where more than 200 people converted to Orthodoxy.
After baptism and Divine Liturgy, there were also cultural events and friendly football match between Rurenge team and Kaziba youth orthodox team at Rurenge stadium.
On the 14/09/2014 a priest will be ordained in the soil of Rwanda for the first time in the History of the Alexandrian Patriarchate. Over 2000 people are waiting to be baptized and ministered. Orthodoxy is still new in Rwanda, please keep the Rwandan Mission in your everyday prayers.
Our website is TEARSONTHEEQUATOR.COM andthebook I laboured for three decades to write is titled, Tears on The Equator. For all who wish to have this treasure of Orthodox struggle in their lives, please visit the website, our Facebook page by the same name and write to me at tearsontheequator@gmail. Pray for Father Christopher Walusimbi who has built his stone temple one stone at a time. May Christ our True God bring peace to the Orthodox who now war with each other. Let us Pray as christ would have us Pray.
I am just weak with in amazement and overwhelmed with happiness wirh reading and seeing this true holy blessing from God to these beautiful people.
I am speechless, just speechless.
I am so very happy I cannot say.
Oh Lord Jesus thank you so much for washing the souls of these my brothers, my African people. Too long I feel they have suffered and done without. So many untold sufferings. Suffering brought by internal and external forces which got worse in lot of says when the "Christian Missions" from the west; particularly from the United States came there and just I'm my view abused an already terrible situation under the banner of will and peace in your Holy name. Now they have your true faith which is living water by which upon drinking they will thirst no more. Oh keep them Lord, these beautiful people, your children by thy Holy Spirit which is full of grace.
The angels in heaven are praising without stoping so let us now praise you in this time and all times "Holy Holy Holy Perfect Lord of Hosts, heaven and earth are filled with the Holiness of Thy Glory. Amen
How want to be with those who are doing this great work building Gods Kingdom not with bricks and glass but with souls. This is Gods will.
