Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Auburn had reason to celebrate with a special visit on July 31 from Gerard Muvunyi, who with 10 other Rwandan students was on a whirlwind visit to Northern California. Gerard was visiting from Bethlehem Lutheran’s sister parish in Kibungo, Rwanda. Gerard and the other students visiting Northern California were receiving specialized training at the Berkeley Theological Seminary. During the Sunday services, Gerard presented the sister congregation with a banner of the Lord’s Prayer. Members of BLC presented Gerard with a quilt and prayer shawl hand made by it members. Gerard is holding up a picture of the church which is under construction and supported by BLC.
