Rwanda is a land that has known both the momentous movement of the Spirit of God and the heart-wrenching horror of genocide. It is indeed a New Dawn in Rwanda as She moves in transformational journey. Rwanda is a beautiful, lush and hilly country in east Africa located just below the equator. It is a country of approximately 8 million people, 1 million of which are orphans. The people are friendly, gracious and quite ambitious to improve their lives. In 1994, with bad governance with their propagation of genocide ideology against the Tutsis wherein 1 million Rwandans were killed in 100 days. With the overthrow of the government that promoted the genocide, a new and young democracy was born in 1994 led by then RPF (Rwandese Patriotic Front). The present Government is committed to security, stability, democracy, human rights, private ownership, rule of law and zero tolerance for corruption. They are intentionally and effectively encouraging foreign investment and do everything feasible to facilitate foreign aid and charity, whether public (governments) or private (individuals). The people of Rwanda move with resilience and with vision and purpose. Divisions are healing and leadership or governance based on ethnicity is discouraged--people refer to themselves as Rwandans, not by their former ethnic affiliations. Rwanda is a country well positioned to expand and develop economically into the foreseeable future. Our prayers goes to leadership, the peoples of Rwanda and her neighbors that Rwanda may rise and shine again in her destiny ordained by God.
Blessed is the Nation whose God is her Lord.
