Archbishop Laurent Mbanda joins us to share his wonderful story from being a barefoot refuge in the East African nation of Rwanda to a Burundi refugee camp, where he and his parents were saved.

A long walk to Kenya followed, then he was miraculously accepted into university, after weeks sleeping on the streets.

After university, he was a staff worker for Campus Crusade for Christ, before doing a masters and doctorate in the United States, and eventually lead the Compassion International Aid work following the 1994 Rwandan massacre.

Then there’s amazing work leading the church in Rwanda, explosive growth, with thousands saved, to now starting an East African Christian University.

Archbishop Mbanda is deputy chair of significant movement within Anglicanism, GAFCON, and in 2020 will host the Anglican Bishops conference in the Rwandan capital Kigali.
