Authentic Word Ministries and Zion Temple Celebration centers, organisers of Africa Haguruka, have confirmed that the annual crusade will be held virtually from July 11th to July 18th.

This year marks the 22nd edition and the event will be held under the theme, “Africa Embrace the Wind of Change.”

Africa Arise and Shine conference locally known as Africa Haguruka is taking place when the world is facing hard times of the Coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, 2021 edition proclaims life again, referring to the Biblical testimony of Ezekiel who was commanded to speak life into the dry bones.

The audience will follow all the revival conferences and teachings online via radio and TV stations including Authentic TV and radio, as well as social media platforms.

The organisers believe that God is raising change-makers in Africa who will not only have the ability to become a blessing to many, but those sons and daughters of Africa will also be empowered by God on their mission.

Apostle Dr Paul Gitwaza, the founder of the initiative, said that during this period where the world is hit by the pandemic, there is hope that God will save us from the peril.

Gitwaza noted that the purpose of the initiative is to awaken Africans on the continent and in the Diaspora to arise and live Christ-Centered lives and play a pivotal role in the transformation of the African continent.

The event will give experienced speakers from across the world an opportunity to discuss how Africa can embrace the positive wind of change for its social, economic and spiritual transformation.

It will also feature teachings on Family, Leadership, Education, Business, and the Youth arising as well as revival preaching and praise and worship songs.

Africa Haguruka is an international Christian gathering launched in 2000 in Kigali and according to Apostle Gitwaza the initiative started in Rwanda because God wanted this country to become an incubator of the rebirth for a new and transformed Africa.
