TVM is one of River Stone’s “For the World” partners. They are empowering Rwandan widows as they help them out of poverty by providing sustainable employment for them.  The ministry impacts not only the widows their children and extended family as well.  Additionally, TVM employs administrative personnel to lead the Rwandan side of the operation.  It is a really great work.  You can learn more about them here.  There are some excited things coming up for them that we can be praying for and participating in.

First of all, they have a Gala coming up that is a truly unique experience.  A private collector of JFK photography has offered to allow TVM to present these pictures to the public on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination.  The negatives of these pictures were destroyed in the attack of the World Trade Center on 9/11.  These are the only copies that exist of many of these photographs.  This event is huge and will be attended by folks from up and down the I-35 corridor.  If you would like to invest as a sponsor or by attending, click on the “Gala” link above.  The date for the Gala is November 16th, and all the details are available on the website.

Secondly, TVM has asked their partners to be in prayer for this event and for another important opportunity.  Simon manages the day-to-day operation on the ground in Rwanda.  Simon is an amazing young man, full of God, and doing great things for the Kingdom.  TVM is trying to bring Simon to the States for the event and to speak at area churches leading up to the event (including ours). Simon was denied a visa at his first visa appointment.  By the grace of God, he has been given an opportunity to re-apply.  Visas are not easy to get, and prayer can make all the difference.  Would you join us in praying for Simon to get his visa so that he can come and help spread the message about how God is moving among the widows and their community in Rwanda. His next appointment is on the 23rd, and prayer are appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to read about TVM.  Another great way to support the ministry is going by their shop and buying one of kind goods handmade in Africa.  It’s a great place, and you’ll get to meet members of the TVM team while you’re there. Please let us know if you have any other questions about TVM and how you can be involved.
