Heath and Rebecca Amos

Ministry Overview

We’ve been in Rwanda since 2008. We arrived when our son, Pete, was 6 weeks old. Before Rwanda we lived in Lubbock, Texas. Rebecca and I met and fell in love in Rwanda and got married in Texas.

Why Rwanda?

We are in Rwanda to make disciples and disciple-makers with God’s help.  We want people to read and understand the Bible themselves and to fall in love with God and to obey His commands within a community of believers.  We pray that God will rewrite the history of Rwanda, making it known as a place of God’s love instead of a place of hatred and genocide.

Seeing God at work in Rwanda

We are seeing God do the things mentioned above.  He is causing lives to be changed, turning people into committed baptized believers, restoring families, and bringing people off the streets.  He is creating and sustaining communities of believers through His  Word.  People who would have mourned alone are now surrounded by a community of believers who care for and love them.  God is doing many great and beautiful things here.
