Mustard Seed Project - supports the ministries of The Rev. John Kabango Rucyahana (of Rwanda) to provide "Acts of Mercy and Mission in East and Central Africa". These ministries include the Sonrise School in Rwanda , which was started by Bishop John in response to the 1994 genocide which left hundreds of thousands of orphans in Rwanda. Bishop John founded the Sonrise School to be a “light on a hill” and a demonstration to everyone in Rwanda as to what is possible. Many of the Sonrise School’s students are genocide/AIDS orphans chosen because they were the most needy children in their villages.
