Churches’ Forum TearFund event on Saturday 4th May

The West Erne Churches Forum have invited the Revd Emanuel Murangira, who is the TEARFUND country manager for Rwanda, to speak at a specially organised TEARFUND event on Saturday 4th June at 2pm in Derrygonnelly Methodist church.

Emmanuel will be speaking about his experiences of the Rwandan genocide which occurred in 1994 where he lost over 100 of his family members.

This is a very powerful story in how Emmanuel found the strength in dealing with and overcoming such a terrible atrocity

We will also hear from Diane Holt talk about the work TEARFUND is doing with rural churches in Ireland.

We would welcome as many of our church members and and indeed the wider community to attend this event.  There will be light refreshments afterwards.

Many of you will recall, that our community supported TEARFUND last May with a soup lunch which raised over £7,000 for the Nepal Earthquake disaster.

Later on that evening Emmanuel will be speaking at a regional TEARFUND event in Rossorry Parish Hall Enniskillen where he will be talking about last years appeal which was on people trafficking and will also be talking about this years forthcoming appeal on poverty.  The event starts at 7.30pm sharp.
