From the watershed of the two rivers Congo and Nile, which is over 2500 m
above sea level down to Lake Kivu at 1400 m above sea level – in the middle of
this hilly landscape – high above the Kivu Lake is the Market place Karengera,
200 km southwest of the capital Kigali.
Alfred and Lucie Tobler have started their mission work 1970 on invitation of the parish of Karengera, which was founded in 1966. Together with local Pastors and Evangelists they brought the "Good News" of Jesus Christ to the inhabitants and a sustainable development of national importance began.
Important parishes and school centres with thousands of Christians and young people who are professionally trained, have been planted and built.
