Haggai Leader Stories

HAGGAI LEADERS

PRESENT THE GOSPEL


Rev. Dr. Jean Baptiste Mugarura is determined that Rwanda should hear the Good News.

When the Rwandan genocide occurred three years after his Haggai training, he committed himself to work for his nation’s children. He says, “I want to see every young person in Rwanda given an opportunity to see, to savor, and to serve God. Less than 10 percent of kids get quality education, and not only does this hamper leadership development, it also perpetuates poverty in our communities.”

Today, the organization he leads employs 130 full time staff and has two cooperatives of about 30 people. It runs two schools of over 1,000 kids – 300 from extremely impoverished families. Since 1995, they have reached more than half a million young people with the Gospel.

HAGGAI LEADERS

DEMONSTRATE THE GOSPEL


As a former drug dealer, Marko Budiman knows what it’s like to be destitute. Today, he takes that knowledge to the slums of Jakarta, Indonesia, offering hope to those in despair.

As chairman of the 5 Roti 2 Ikan Foundation (Five Loaves Two Fishes), Marko provides holistic charitable services to the poor and needy. He builds schools and clinics in the slums, has 27 Jakarta rehab shelters, and ministers to inmates in prison and immigration detention centers.

He has also trained 250 teachers and opened more than 10 schools, reaching over 1,400 students of other religious backgrounds. In a nation where open evangelism is against the law, Marko brings Christ to his compatriots by demonstrating God’s love for them.

HAGGAI LEADERS

EQUIP OTHERS


Maimunah Natasha is a rarity – a woman entrepreneur in the steel industry.

For many years, she has held together a tough career and a passion for teaching the Christian faith. But it was attending Haggai, she says, that made her what she is today.

“That experience was so rich that it was almost unbelievable. Stepping out of the training center in Maui, I was, literally, a completely different person. I knew I would never be the same again. I went into the Maui training center with much curiosity and stepped out of it with a burning fire in my soul.”

Her initial goal was to train about 50 people in her first year, but she has gone on to equip more than 10,000 to demonstrate and present the Gospel.
