Evon's Hope Ministry

This is a public charity founded in part by John and Odette Runezerwa, former members of our congregation who have moved to Texas. Their firstborn daughter, Evon, contracted malaria when she was 2 years old and subsequently died. When John left the Refugee Camp in Burundi, Africa he made a promise to God that he would return one day and help the children there who are hungry and homeless.

The mission of Evon's Hope is to be the hands and feet of Jesus on Earth. Their team is caring for 222 children in Burundi, Africa. The 2015 Global Hunger Index indicated this is one of the hungriest countries in the world. Most of the children are orphans or have a single parent.

Here at the CUMC, we have members who sponsor a child for a year, members of the congregation “share” the yearly support of another child through monthly donations, and a third child has been sponsored through the Service Club. We have sponsored an African Choir Concert from Overcomer’s Church to help raise funds for a feeding program at the school in Bujumbura where over 2000 children attend in 10 classrooms for grades 1-8.
