Bird of Paradise Missionaries couple back from Rwanda for a visit

Monday 29 May 2017

Jerome and Mary Munyangaju, now living in Rwanda, are returning to Ireland for a short visit in June.  

On June 19, in Knockbreda Parish Hall, they will address the annual meeting of the charity they founded, Bird of Paradise Ministries in Rwanda. They will also be visiting supporting churches. 

It is two years since they left their home in Killyleagh to administer the home for the elderly in Kigali.    

Currently they care for three residents, Esperance (66), Khadijaa (93) and Stephanie (97).  Each of these ladies was greatly affected by the genocide in 1994 and has no home or family to care for them.  

Jerome and Mary explain: “All our residents in one sense are grieving for their losses and are only comforted by the care they receive from us.

“This gives them hope. 

“They now know we are their parents, they believe they have a bright future. Now they know that God loves them in a practical way and that He answers their prayers, so our our time of evening devotions together is greatly valued by us all.”

Jerome and Mary are really looking forward to re–connecting with family and friends.  

More information about the charity and the couple’s schedule can be obtained from: Revd Bobbie Moore (Director), or Mavis Spiers (Secretary),
