          Brethren Academy in Rwanda

           The Brethren Nursery School in Gisenyi Rwanda is now named Brethren Academy.
           The change came about by the suggestion of a visiting government official, as it
           was felt that the new name would offer more flexibility in the the event that we
           might add classes for older children in the future.

           School opened again in September with 50 students.  There are now three classes - ages
           3, 4, and 5.  Each class has a local teacher, with Grace Elliott moving among the classes
           teaching English.

            The new playground equipment (purchased with funds from Southern PA District
            congregations) is a tremendous blessing.  The school children love using the
            swings and merry-go-rounds.  Naturally, anytime during the week that children
            are present, they are getting lots of use.

            Thank you all so much for your prayers and support for the Brethren
            Academy.  It is a beautiful expression of God’s love to boys and girls
            that would not otherwise have such an opportunity.
