As humans, we are designed to strive for growth, to strain for new heights and to explore new frontiers. When we stop growing, we stop living.
Most organizations also long to expand their influence. At Hope Haven Rwanda, we want to serve more Rwandese and to broadly transform the community and give it sustainability.
In Micah 7:11, the prophet reminded Israel that the day would come when they would build again: “The day for building your walls will come, the day for extending your boundaries.”
A few verses later, Micah shared that God would restore their hope, and that His glory would be manifested for all to see: “As in the days when you came out of Egypt, I will show them my wonders” (Micah 7:15).
I thank God that we are able to continue building hope in Rwanda, and our latest project is an example of continued expansion. With God’s provision and direction, we are in the midst of a major construction project which, by the end of this summer, will provide 12 new classrooms, a kitchen, and a dining and multi-use space—more than 18,000 square feet of new space! These are just a few of the amazing things happening on campus right now, and I am excited to share that by May 1st, four of the classrooms, the kitchen & the dining area will be put to use each day!
Whether your investment involves praying, giving or going, you are contributing to hope in a place where there was not much hope. Thanks for helping us build hope in Rwanda!
P.S. We look forward to seeing many of you at the Fabric of Hope event on April 18, at the University of Colorado South Denver, home of The Wildlife Experience – please register today if you haven’t already.
