In 2016, AE Rwanda had a vision to reach the entire city of Kigali over three years. They presented their vision to local pastors who agreed and felt God’s blessing on such an endeavour. Since then, AE Rwanda and our local church partners have worked hard to systematically reach all parts of the city with the Gospel. This three year plan will culminate in this week’s mission which focusses on the city-centre/business district of Kigali.
In 2016, the Gasabo Mission reached the North East portion of Kigali City and in 2017, the Kicukiro District was reached in the South East. The Kigali West Mission for Jesus will saturate the central district with the Gospel. This area is a hotspot of youth delinquency, drug abuse, prostitution among other issues. There is also an Islamic Centre in the area which has converted many youth to Islam.
As the mission begins, AE Rwanda together with about 50 churches will impact the heart of the city with the Gospel. We are praying that with God’s help we can reach at least 56,000 people with the good new of Christ.
Over 60 evangelistic events have been planned that will reach into all levels of society, from the very rich to the very poor. On Sunday, the mission began with AE ministers preaching in city centre churches. A total of 4,505 people were ministered to and of those, 245 people made confessions of faith! Praise God!

Sandrine Umwiza was present on Sunday and accepted Christ into her heart.
“I have lived a sinful life since I left home. I have been a drunkard and have done many evil things. I surrounded myself with bad people who helped me walk deeper and deeper into darkness. One night, I was falsely accused of stealing someone’s phone in a club and I was sent to prison! I was so scared! While I was there I met someone who helped me think about my life and as soon as I was released, I started attending church.
Today, I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart and I feel a lot of joy and peace as a result. I’m so happy to be a Christian and I know that my life will never be the same again. Thank you for coming!”
As the mission continues, the team will be ministering in schools and universities which will reach approximately 12,400 people with the Gospel each day. They will also minister in prisons and hold soccer outreaches.
Please join us as we pray for the AE Rwanda team and for all those who will hear the Gospel this week. Ask God to prepare the hearts of those who will encounter the mission teams this week.

This mission has been challenged by new government regulations which inhibit AE’s usual outreach techniques, but we are trusting God for his provision and blessing on this district of Kigali in spite of those challenges. Please pray that God will prevail in bringing glory to himself during this mission!
