From Liquor Store to Place of Worship:

Did you know that the Remera Seventh Day Adventist Church used to be a liquor store before it became a church in 1989? It’s a fantastic story of transformation! The church’s leader shared, “The building that used to sell alcohol now welcomes people to worship Jesus and share the good news with everyone in our country.”

A Marvelous Modern Building:

The new temple will be stunning! Once finished, it will have a big church to fit 3500 people, a room for 500 folks, a library, a gym, guest rooms, and a parking lot for 200 cars. That’s not all – this project will also create over 20,000 job opportunities to help the local community.

Racing Against Time:

The leaders of the Seventh Day Adventist Church are determined to finish the construction within a year. They say it’s crucial to complete it on time, and they’re working hard to make it happen.

A Vision Beyond Worship:

This temple means a lot more than just a place to pray. The Mayor of Kigali City, Pudence Rubingisa, thinks these modern temples bring beauty to the city and are essential during emergencies. They can provide shelter when disasters strike. The church also plays a big role in education, healthcare, and other community activities.

Leading by Example:

The work of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Rwanda inspires not only their own country but also neighboring nations. Church leaders From the Division (East Central Division) also were present and they visited Rwanda and were impressed by the church’s activities. They went back to Kenya with new ideas to help their communities.
