On 02 to 07 April 2017, the Central Executive Committee (CEC) met in Kibuye, Rwanda.
The opening minute reads: “We gathered by the shores of Lake Kivu, following the four-day Triennial of the Africa Section at the Kagarama Evangelical Friends Church, Kigali, Rwanda. The theme of the Triennial was ‘Stop crying – God has a solution’ (Exod. 14:10-16). We have been inspired by exuberant worship, by Esther Mombo’s two presentations on the theme, and by many conversations with the more than 400 Friends gathered from across the Section. Many of us also visited the Genocide Memorial that commemorates the more than one million people killed during the 1994 atrocities.”
“In our first evening together, we have shared personal stories of key transformative moments in our spiritual journeys. We have wept for each others’ losses and rejoiced in each others’ experiences of the living God who comforts us, heals us, speaks to us, and guides us.”
