Hi, our names are Andrea, Amanda, Lizzie & Simon. We are embarking on an adventure to Rwanda in just a few short months and part of almost all of our time will look like speaking at different venues, including churches, schools, and public areas. We want to bless the community we are going into.Thanks for taking the time to visit our page and share the love. We hope that our voices together will shine a light brighter and than all forms of fear that still exist in our world.
A little bit about each team member, you ask? Here you go...
My name is Andrea. In December 2016, the continent of Africa - and the desire to go again - was placed on my heart. On that same day, Pacifique (whom I had met 5 years earlier in Tanzania but hadn't much spoken to since) messaged me and asked when I was coming to Rwanda. (Not a coincidence I should think!!) Three close (and adventurous!) friends decided to join me in the "YES LET'S GO" and we have spent the last 6 months praying and preparing into our 10-day mission trip to share God's love in action, partnering with Fatherhood Ministries in Kilgali, Rwanda. Now, Amanda, over to you...
Hi lovely people thank you for taking the time to read what we are up to right now. I am Amanda - a quarter piece of this team who said a huge yes to God!! As soon as we say yes, the adventure begins & now the next part of our adventure with Him will take us to Kigali, Rwanda at the end of September. My heart is to see people - men, women and children - transformed through the love of Jesus, standing on the promises of Isaiah 61. So what will we be doing? We will be partnering with a local pastor, visiting and speaking with the community in Kigali, but mostly spreading love ❤ If you would like to partner with us financially in partnering with the team in Rwanda your donations will be so gratefully received please also be praying for us as we plan and travel, next up Lizzie...
Hi! I'm Lizzie. Many of you know that I love travelling. I just can't keep still for too long. I'm packing my bags and dusting off my passport because Rwanda here we come! I'm excited about seeing the love of God in action through us. Please pray about supporting us as we seek to bless the pastor and the work he is doing in his country. Love you all. Now...last but not least...Simon, over to you...
Thanks Lizzie. Simon Lambert here. It's an honour to be going on a trip like this with these trio of wonderful ladies. Last March when I went to Brazil with Global Awakening, a hunger and passion to see more of God was released in me. I'm new at this but learning quick that the more we partner with God, the happier we as individuals become. We were created for this kind of stuff! I'm the only guy from the UK going, and I feel that God is going to use me to bless the men of Rwanda. Thank you for praying us and partnering with us as you see fit.
Now that you've read all about us, we bet you would like to know how you can actually partner with us partner with Fatherhood Ministry! Glad you asked. Any money given towards this page will go directly towards funds to purchase sewing and knitting materials for local women in order to teach them a skill to provide for their families. There is also opportunity to help expand a local church building with all additional funds raised, as well as provide new sound equipment. There is no shortage in ways that we can bless the nation of Rwanda through these small gestures all put together.
Maybe you're reading this and thinking...."actually, I don't have a lot of finances to give." That's okay too! Maybe you have some of the following items that we can take with us:
-Flip flops (preferably sizes 6+ for adults, or children sizes)
-Boys football shirts or kits - Don't have to be new
-Girls' princess dresses - Don't have to be new
-Boys superheroes outfits - Don't have to be new
-Deflated footballs that can be inflated with a pump
You can give these items to a team member directly and as always, we are GRATEFUL for your help. Together we will make the world beautiful.
