Rick Warren tells how Saddleback Church used the CHE strategy in Rwanda with amazing resultsRick Warren challenged participants in the closing address at the Global Summit on Malaria hosted by President Bush. His audience included President Bush, Bill and Melinda Gates, Rupert Murdoch, and a host of others like them. In his speech, he made this bold claim: “I am going to prove to you that we can do it (deliver needed healthcare) faster through local churches than anybody can do in any other organization”. In the video below, he tells the story of what happened in Rwanda through his PEACE plan using the CHE strategy, training, and materials. After the program was evaluated, six African presidents called him and asked him to repeat what he was doing in their countries.
Note: Though he does not mention CHE in the clip, we started working with Saddleback in 2005, trained their leaders, and gave them permission to use and re-brand our training materials for their PEACE plan. The work on the ground was led by a colleague of mine from Medical Ambassadors that was recruited by Saddleback for that purpose.
119 countries and countingCHE teams around the world are finding their way to our website and mapping their work. Check out the heat map on our Global CHE Network website and see the extent of what God is doing. Thank you again. If you have not yet taken the opportunity, I encourage you to join with us in the effort to mobilize the global church to take the good news of the kingdom to a million unreached villages.
