Light The Streets

As the Aids crisis spotlight gives way to the health care crisis limelight, I suspect that we’re only a few years away from African advocacy being out of vogue among American churches. This is why you should check out the ministry of Africa New Life. ¬†They were interested in Africans as humans before it was hip, and they’re in it for the long haul.

More than just child sponsorship that features nutrition and education, Africa New Life Ministries is dedicated to building sustainable human infrastructure by educating and training women to join Rwanda’s aspirations of a continent leading quality of life. ¬†Focused around the person Jesus Christ and the complete redemption of the human condition, Africa New Life Ministries also works with street children, moving them from city slums to facilities focused on introducing them to the life that Christ intended for them.

If you aren’t aware of Africa New Life and how they’re Kingdom building to turn “Not Yet” into “Already”, you should check out the video below. You won’t cry because you’re sad, you’ll cry because of how beautiful Faith, Hope, and Love are.

    It’s so much more complicated. 93% in Rwanda claim they are Christian, yet the churches were complicit in the genocide. Rwanda is also oh the geographic dividing line between Christian and Islam. Haves and have nots. Africa New Life Ministries is dedicated to justice, to addrssing systemic wrongs, and to giving the Glory to Jesus Christ. Whether fans stay, or go, the mission is true. Just meet the staff, and you will know.
