Rev Jerome Munyangaju and his wife, Mary from Rwanda visited St Macartin's Cathedral, Enniskillen on Sunday, 9th September to speak of their mission work there with Bird of Paradise Ministries, a Christian, non-profit organisation which is committed to providing the basic needs of shelter and care to the elderly of Rwanda.

Revd Jerome is a former rector of Killyleagh Parish, Diocese of Down and Dromore, and a former Canon of St Anne's Cathedral. He and his wife Mary returned to their native Kigali, Rwanda, in 2011 to further the work of the charity they founded in 2010.

Jerome said: 'One of the challenges of our ministry has been about waiting - and in that space of waiting remain as hopeful and optimistic as ever. The Psalmist says, ‘Let no one who waits on you be put to shame' (Psalm 25:3).

“We have been prayerfully searching for God's direction, as well as looking for a plot to build a home for the elderly.

“Now the Lord has provided in his time and we are grateful for that. While we feel excited by this new development, it is still a big challenge to reach the goal of having a place for the elderly. The answer to this challenge is to keep trusting in God. He is faithful and just!”

A presentation was made on behalf of the parishioners to support their missionary work.
