News letter from Rwanda

Here is the 2nd installment of " what Kigali Christian School means to me" written by one of our        6th graders.

My name is Gideon. I am 12 years old and in P6 class. Our class teacher is called Christophe. By the time I came to this school, I was so surprised to see such a very beautiful school like this. I thought there was no such beautiful school in Rwanda. But i got K.C.S. what a good school.
Kindness teachers and hard working. What a thing are the students. Actually it is a small heaven full of wonderful people. By the time I joined this school, I was so lazy but after coming here I  become more hard working. I was one of the last pupils in the class. But after coming here I became the 5th. I thought it was a miracle happening but it continued. Actually if I talk about our school, I can't end my speech. Let me stop here. See you on our school. Bye Bye. See you soon.

News letter from Rwanda

Greetings from Rwanda. This is the first of our weekly posts of responses from our students on "What Kigali Christian School means to them." All responses have not been edited. Enjoy! -Brad Burnfield

Teta (sixth grade) writes: Kigali Christian School is like a school to me but also like a home to me. It is like a home to me because when I go there I find there my classmates who are like my brothers and sisters. I find there teachers who are like my parents at school. Kigali Christian School is the best school I have ever joined. It is the best school I have ever joined because:
-We have teachers who love us and teach us about Jesus Christ.
-They teach us to have discipline and excellence.
-They teach us equally.
-They teach us to share with our friends. 
-They always tell us to never give up.
This is all about Kigali Christian School. This is what Kigali Christian School means to me. Thank You!!!

Rwanda trip 2013

As of today 35 people have signed up for our trip to Rwanda in September. We are 29 men and 6 women going. The first week, leaving September 12, we have 26 people going and the second week, leaving September 19, we have 9 people going, plus we have 5 people who are staying the full two weeks.
We also have 21 new people who never have travelled with BWB before, this is pretty amazing, and you are in for an amazing experience.
BWB would like to thank EVERYONE who are going. It would be impossible without you, to build the three buildings at Kigali Christian School.

News from Brad Burnfield in Rwanda

Greetings from Rwanda

My name is Brad, and I Am an American missionary who has been working with Youth for Christ Rwanda for the past 8 years. As the founder director of Kigali Christian School and now in charge of RYFC's social programs( including the school), I have deep appreciation for BWB.
Just today as I was checking on the progress of the country slaps for our future school buildings. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of BWB and all their partners. It is safe to say that without BWB , there would be no Kigali Christian School, a very special school that is touching the lives of so many families. Don't take my word for it. I invite you back to this blog weekly, where I will be posting responses from our students to the topic " what KCS means to me".

I want to be the first to welcome all of you to Kigali, and I look forward to catching up with such wonderful friends from previous trips and meeting new friends this fall.

With sincere appreciation,
Brad Burnfield
Director of social programs
YFC Rwanda
