Church Roof Project for Rwanda, East Africa
Evangelical Baptist Churches of Rwanda is an association that has churches from the east border to the west border and has a heart for planting 10 churches each year. Pastor Jean Nshimiyimana, president of this association, claims they are opposed to dependency on American funding. They provide evangelism, discipleship, and training of pastors, plus the local church plant provides the land, the rock for the foundation, the mud brick, and the wood for the roof trusses. The only part the church cannot afford is the $2,000 for the tin roof. Several American churches have already been challenged with this onetime gift and have roofed a new building. Can you help?

- Watch Hope for Haiti
The International Partnership connects associations of independent Baptist church associations around the world. It is important that Director Chris Hindal be able to accept the invitations of the partnering associations to speak at their conferences, conduct pastoral training, facilitate strategic planning, and serve as a liaison/representative of the GARBC. Travel funds enable the director to make these onsite, face-to-face connections. Help facilitate these connections for Great Commission work. Designate “Conference Associates” if donating online; or send a check, payable to International Partnership, with “Conference Associates” on the memo line.
In developing countries, no backup resources such as insurance are available in the event of medical or household tragedies. We are all partners in the global harvest, and it is an appropriate response of compassion to assist pastors and association leaders in times of emergency. Designate “Compassion Assistance” if donating online; or send a check, payable to International Ministries, with “Compassion Assistance” on the memo line.
Building Project for India
The New Life Regular Baptist Society Association is a small association of churches in Andhra Pradesh, India, that has a heart for church planting in the outlying village. Pastor John Victor Sakile regularly conducts services with small groups of people during this formative time of their church plant. In a nearby village the association has purchased property but has no funds to erect a church building. Can you help? Designate “India Building Project” if donating online; or send a check, payable to International Ministries, with “India Building Project” on the memo line.
