Rwanda: Guest Speaker in Phoenix

Join us in Phoenix on Wednesday, October 9, for an unforgettable conversation with Russel Mushanga, Country Director of Food for the Hungry (FH) in Rwanda.

Holistic Discipleship in Rwanda with Russel Mushanga
Wednesday, October 9, 2013, at 9 a.m.

Food for the Hungry
1224 E Washington St, Phoenix, AZ 85034

Many of us think of Rwanda as the country devastated by genocide in 1994. In the span of just 100 days, up to 20 percent of the country’s population was killed in horrific ethnic violence. The memory of those events are seared in Rwandans’ minds as an unforgettable horror.

Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the genocide. In these 20 years, how has Rwanda changed? What can all of us learn from what happened in Rwanda? What inspiration can we take away from Rwanda’s reconciliation movement in the years since the genocide?

Russel Mushanga is leading a movement to promote community development among Rwanda’s most vulnerable people. He will share his experiences during his speech on: Holistic Discipleship in Rwanda.


In Russel’s own words:

“I hate poverty and all the forms it takes… I have seen many problems in the world and particularly in Africa. Without wars and other forms of civil strife, communities would be better placed to fight poverty and spiritual deprivation. Education and the Word of God can help reduce these vices in the world.”

Plan on visiting Food for the Hungry in Phoenix for this special one-hour program during FH’s chapel service. Free parking is available. After the chapel service, you’re invited to stay for a tour of our Global Service Center and an informal meet-and-greet.
