With the blessing of His Holiness Patriarch Theodoros II of Alexandria and All Africa, two weeks ago construction began for the first Orthodox church in Rwanda. It is named after the Holy Trinity and is being built on one hectare of land purchased by donation from an anonymous donor (20,000 euros) and other Christians (15,000 euros). It is built in Nyamata, 2 km from the New International Airport with the support of the "Brotherhood of Orthodox External Missions of Thessaloniki".

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I wonder whether the missionary work would be easier if they used Ethiopian rite instead of Byzantine one. Rwanda is not Ehiopia but still.

Anyway, Many years regardless of rite!
