News Story from Christian Post: “Last summer, evangelical megachurch pastor Rick Warren he fell in love with Rwanda – one of the top countries at the highest risk – as he was testing his P.E.A.C.E. Plan model. This summer, Warren announced a major commitment to care for the sick in Rwanda as he launched “The P.E.A.C.E. Plan” around the world.”
Warren and his wife Kay Warren made a generous donation to upgrade Kibuye District Hospital in Rwanda last week at the conclusion of his 13-nation Asian and African tour. With the launch of the P.E.A.C.E. Plan in Rwanda, Warren’s nearly 30,000-member Saddleback Church officially began deploying P.E.A.C.E. Plan volunteers to the African nation.
“Today, the churches in Rwanda, Saddleback Church and other congregations in America are uniting to reinforce and strengthen this hospital,” Warren told the hospital staff last week, according to a news release. “As we have talked to this wonderful staff, we have learned of various needs in different wards, including specific equipment and medicines. We hope that Kibuye Hospital will become a model district hospital for others to follow across the nation and the continent.”
Purpose Driven/P.E.A.C.E. representatives in Rwanda will be provided with a list of priorities for equipment and programs required and volunteers numbering 125 on 20 teams will work with and through local churches for 10 days. There will also be planning and partnering with local churches, training leadership, assisting the poor and educating the next generation. Read this entire article, click here.
