Linked with Love is Pearce’s partnership with the Nzige Preschool: located on a hilltop in southeastern Rwanda, Africa. In Kinyarwanda, the language spoken in Nzige, “We are linked with love” is translated “Duhujwe n’urukundo.” This school helps more than 300 children, between the ages of 4-7, prepare for public school. Started a few years ago by the Free Methodist congregation in Nzige, the preschool is making a significant impact on families with young children.
Pearce families are asked to consider making a commitment to sponsor a child from the school. To date, more than 100 children in Nzige have been sponsored by families at Pearce, but there are still children waiting for sponsors. If you would like to join other families from Pearce and support one of these children in Nzige, you may contact the Pearce Church office at 594-9488 at any time and ask for more information. Those choosing to sponsor a child will commit to monthly financial support ($30 per month), regular prayer support, and occasional communication with the child to encourage them in their studies and in their walk with Christ.
Five mission teams have been sent from Pearce to Nzige since our Linked with Love partnership began in 2015. Our sixth team is in Nzige this February 2018. Team members are Leandra Cooke, Bev Faro, Lydia Monroe, Sue Smout, Carol Stephenson, and Becky Watson. The Pearce family is asked to pray for this group of women, as they conduct teacher training to the Nzige Preschool and Primary School teachers, visit their sponsored children, and participate in what God is already doing in Nzige.

Our partnership with the Nzige preschool in Rwanda was highlighted in the International Childcare Ministries October 2015 newsletter. You can find that article here: http://us7.campaign-archive1.com/
This partnership is the result of the work of Pearce’s Great Commission Leadership Team, a group committed to helping our congregation to be involved in Kingdom work, both at home and around the world.
