Rwanda Appeal


Dear Friends, We are excited! My wife and I have been asked to be a part of a ministry team travelling to Rwanda. We’ll be there for ten days. Leading the team is Bible teacher, Dr. Tony Nichols. He is senior pastor of Church Alive (North-West Arkansas), located in Bentonville. I know him well and work closely with him. He is an amazing Christian leader, with solid biblical scholarship and attesting miracles as a regular part of his life.

Tony has ministered in forty-nine nations. He serves Rwanda by mentoring leaders. This country experienced genocide but is becoming an example of gospel transformation. They are asking for our help. We’ll deliver training materials on kingdom business and church leadership. Others will work on construction and medical needs. I’ll teach on emerging apostles and fatherhood. Lana will teach on marriage and parenting. Our desire is to serve and strengthen those laboring in the field. What an opportunity! Would you prayerfully consider supporting us in this effort? We need your help! We can’t do it alone. Lana and I are working to raise a total of $4,800.00. Of this amount, our airfare is due soon - $2,800 by mid-August. Will you help us? Other needs are lodging, meals, and training materials. Our team is covering the cost for Rwandan pastors. We’re buying building supplies and medical supplies. Funds raised above our personal expenses go to cover these costs. We need to buy tickets now! The rest must be needed by October. Can you assist us right away? Will you pray for it?


We are asking for your help just like Paul did when he wrote Philippians 4:17-19, “Not that I desire the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account… And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

Pray for us as we raise funds, prepare lessons, and gather supplies. Pray for us even more during our time in Rwanda.
