We have Rwandan brothers and sisters on the other side of the world who have given us immeasurable gifts. Their faithfulness to God and his gospel is the reason they planted us in Colorado Springs 15 years ago as a light to North America.
In gratitude for sharing their spiritual riches, help us give back to them out of our physical riches here in America! We are partnering with them to finish their health clinic in the village of Kibali: a place where hundreds receive HIV care, over 200 babies are born a year, and many receive medicines that otherwise would be out of reach. Each year we run a simultaneous 5k race with them on the other side of the world, friend-raising and fund-raising as a way of strengthening our bond.
This not just a project for us: it is a gift to friends whose names we know. Emmanuel, Justin, Specios, Felix - and so many more - thank you for your generous gift!
