By Ange de la Victoire DUSABEMUNGU

In a gathering filled with faith, hope, and love, the Leaders Breakfast Fellowship in Rwanda was graced by the presence of two esteemed pastors, Rick Warren and Andy Wood who will replace him on the Saddleback Church Management. First Lady Jeannette Kagame delivered a heartfelt message of gratitude, emphasizing the impact these pastors have had on the community and the nation as a whole.

Addressing the audience with humility, First Lady Kagame acknowledged her own desire to learn from these wise leaders. She commended Pastor Rick for his unwavering support and friendship throughout the years, standing by Rwanda through both trials and triumphs. His ability to preach the Word of God in a relatable and compassionate manner has been instrumental in spreading the Gospel.

Recognizing Pastor Rick’s commitment, fairness, empathy, and peace, First Lady Kagame expressed her gratitude for his belief in Rwanda even when it was unpopular to do so.

Mrs. Jeannette Kagame said that “Despite the dark history that plagued the nation, Pastor Rick saw the light in their determination to overcome.”

 She assured him that the country’s progress is also a victory for him, as Rwanda loves him dearly.

Turning her attention to Pastor Andy, First Lady Kagame acknowledged his impressive track record and dynamism.

She highlighted his youth and expressed confidence that he would not be overwhelmed by the task ahead. Wishing him success, divine inspiration, courage, and support from the communities, she hoped that Rwanda would offer him a loving home just as it had for his predecessors.

Reflecting on Rwanda’s journey from devastation to reconciliation and harmony, First Lady Kagame emphasized the importance of unity, accountability, and thinking big.

She said that “The peace plan that had come to the nation’s heart was now spreading its virtuous pulse across Africa.”

 She encouraged everyone present to recognize their blessings and the responsibility they have to effect change and promote social welfare.

Quoting Proverbs 3: 27-28, she reminded the congregation that those who have the power to act must not withhold good from those in need. This sentiment echoed the messages shared by Pastors Rick and Andy, emphasizing the opportunities that arise from limitations when guided by the love and power of God.

Expressing her faith in Rwanda’s spiritual leaders, First Lady Kagame commended their efforts in gathering the community for this fellowship. She urged them to continue being the voice of godliness and virtue, inspiring leaders in all fields to choose service over power. Whether it be in medicine, governance, advocacy, faith, or simply existing with purpose, hard work and devotion will always reflect godly values.

As she concluded her remarks, First Lady Kagame reiterated the importance of action and promised that Rwanda would continue to heed the call to serve. She expressed her gratitude for being invited to the event and prayed for God’s warm, enriching, and protective love to cover all those present and their loved ones.
