Grace News – Winter 2023
Grace News is Anglican Aid’s quarterly newsletter, through which we share encouragement and updates from our project partners.
I recently had the privilege of joining in the Gafcon conference in Kigali, Rwanda. It was inspiring to gather with Anglican leaders from over 50 countries, all committed to preaching the gospel, planting churches, and helping transform their communities. About 50 of our partner dioceses were there and I particularly loved seeing them all together in the same room, meeting each other over lunches and dinners, sharing ideas, joys, and struggles. I was overjoyed to see all these Anglican leaders from around the world, committed to working together to reach the globe with the saving gospel of Jesus. The energy and zeal of the Africans for evangelism in particular was inspiring.
Bishop Andudu from the Diocese of Kadugli in the Nuba Mountains in Sudan told me they have been seeing 1000 people turn to Jesus each year. He thanks Anglican Aid for our support in building a new Bible college which now teaches 42 students. He also said the motorbikes we funded for evangelists are a great help. Praise God.

I also met some of the 35 students being supported by Anglican Aid sponsors at East African Christian College in Rwanda. I was told by the Principal, Chosefu Chemorion , “Without your support, we’d have to close down”. Our help is bearing lasting fruit for Rwanda.
After the conference, our Anglican Aid team of five split up to visit projects spread across six African countries, and all came back brimming with enthusiasm about the impact of the projects. We saw first hand that support from Australia is making a huge difference in life after life, church, after church, diocese, after diocese.
