Umuryango — Our Rwanda Family

Sep 10th 2009

Umuryango means “family” in Kinyarwanda and umuryango is what this group of young men and boys have become to us at Calvary.  They started as street children, orphaned by the genocide, aids, and the economy of Rwanda and through the vision, passion and God-sized dreaming of Jean Paul and Yohani these children are finding family.

Calvary has helped to build them build a home, start a dairy farm, and love on the kids.  Many from our church family have made journey to hang out with that family and many more will go in the future, because to change the life of a child is to shape a generation for God.

If you would like to know more about Umuryango, come to Calvary (1250 University Drive) on Friday night, October 2nd at 8pm.  The premier of a locally inspired documentary will be shown.  Get a taste from the trailer below.
