Dear Family and Friends,

God has a delightful way of making us giggle. This month we ask your prayers for some delightful matters to both live and ponder. In January, 2011 our family finally unpacked our container after 5 ½ years of living in Rwanda. In the process of unpacking we gave away or sold almost all of our baby goodies. In February and March we asked for you to pray for a new worship service CCR was launching targeting Kigali young people. We affectionately and metaphorically labeled our new worship experience, the new birth of Umutoni.

On Friday, 13 May 2011; a new child Gabriel Mugisha came into our home. We are not writing metaphorically. Gabriel is a real boy who we believe will bring a message to us. For more information and the earliest photos of Gabriel check out our blog at

This month we ask for your prayers for the following matters:

1. Gabriel Mugisha. May his health be good. May a forever family for him be discovered. May we hear well the message God intends to speak through him.

2. Dave is finishing his grading at Kigali Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in the next few weeks.
He did not expect in January to meet so many students. It was a delightful season to lecture with them about Ethics. May the final weeks be one where God is honored.

3. Our oldest daughter, Sophia will be leaving in a few months time to attend university at Wheaton College. We are very proud of her. May the necessary funding for her education be discovered. May God use Sophia in her new setting to bring as much wisdom and blessing to others as she has brought to us the last 18 years.

4. CCR is rapidly growing and Dave is exhausted and overwhelmed in pastoral responsibility. We need to expand leadership
. Please be in prayer about a new ministry paradigm being developed called Silverbacks that hopes to mature CCR through small groups led by those at CCR with gray hair.

Thank you for your prayers, support, and encouragement which sustain our family and ministry.

Imana ikurinde (May the Lord Stay With All of You),

Dave and Jana
