Rwanda report

Thank you so much for praying for Susie while she was in Rwanda, visiting APRECOM, our local partner.

Susie tells us: ‘I left Rwanda on Sunday after an incredibly full-on and remarkable 3 weeks, in which I have experienced and seen God at work in ways that have left me literally kneeling on the floor before him. He is truly amazing! Heartfelt thanks for everything you do to strengthen the work of APRECOM.’

Susie has written a full report on what she saw, heard and did while she was in Rwanda. If you’d like to read the report, you can download it here.

Trustees wanted

BCT has a passion and vision to see the Christian Church leading the way in creating local and global societies where every child is valued, kept safe, nurtured and free to reach their God-given potential. If you share that passion and want to use your skills and some of your time to help bring about change and transformation, you might be exactly the kind of person we want to hear from.

It’s an exciting time for BCT. We’re seeing growth and new opportunities in all sorts of areas. At this point, we need 2 or 3 new trustees to oversee our development and make sure our God-given vision remains at the heart of everything we do. Could you be one of the people we’re looking for?

Susie in Rwanda

Members of APRECOM’s Inshuti Nziza Troop in Bukora

BCT’s Director, Susie Howe, has just arrived in Rwanda, to spend two weeks with our local partner, APRECOM. While in Rwanda, Susie will spend time with the APRECOM team, review their work, offer counsel and encouragement, and help them plan for the next year. Following that, she will spend three days with Rev Jean-Paul of LVLE, who will cross the border from DR Congo to meet her.

Visits like these always provide invaluable insights into what the situation ‘on the ground’ is really like for our partners, and how we can best support them. So please pray that this trip is as informative and as mutually-encouraging as it could possibly be.

Susie asks for prayer on one or two specific points:

‘Please pray that God will enable me to fulfil his plans for this trip – to be alert to the leading of Holy Spirit, to step out in faith, to go beyond the obvious and to glorify Jesus. Pray that the children, their families and the local team will be my teachers and that I will learn from them. I pray that Holy Spirit will graciously impart such wisdom to me that I can share his blessing, truth and encouragement with everyone I meet.’
