Audio: School, faith and football in Rwanda

With Chris and Karen Roberts

Rwanda is a young nation – 52 per cent of its population are under 16. So when Chris and Karen Roberts approached Church Mission Society for short-term mission service, they were a natural fit.

From November 2017 to December 2018, they have been based with the Diocese of Kigali.

Karen, a primary school teacher, has been helping develop the skill sets of teachers in church schools as they adapt to an all-new curriculum and style of teaching.

Chris’s passion is for discipleship through sport. He helped establish a soccer tournament and shared ideas about how young people could develop as followers of Jesus as well as footballers.

Reflection questions for groups

If you are listening with your small group, you may like to reflect on some of these questions together:

  • What was the one thing that most struck you when you were listening?
  • What phrase or thought found an echo in your own experience or spiritual journey?
  • Were there any common threads that linked the mission work of the people you’ve listened to and the needs of your local area?
  • Does what you’ve heard inspire you to do anything in particular in response?
  • What one prayer need will you commit to carry with you over the coming month and regularly pray for?
