4 Cows for Rwanda ~ A gift from All Saints by the Sea

“Flower, Comfort, Angel, & Temple”
A Gift from All Saints-by-the-Sea to our Rwandan Communities

All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Montecito, California, has changed the lives of four impoverished communities in Rwanda with the donation of several full-grown, pregnant cows. These donations were first made through Goats for Life (founded by Betsy and David Kain), and are now made through World Dance for Humanity, a local nonprofit that is continuing GFL’s work in Rwanda. 

The cows bring sustenance and hope to the communities, and are cared for and cherished by all. The milk is providing a critical source of protein, especially to children, the elderly, and people with AIDS, and the manure has greatly increased crop yield. The people in these communities are very aware that All Saints made this possible and they are deeply grateful to the parishioners who are now considered part of their families.

In 2015, three cows (Grace, Betsy, and Holy Cow) were given to Abakundana (“Those Who Love Each Other”) Cooperative, a group of Pygmy hunters and gatherers who emerged from their forest home in 2011 to become farmers. In 2016, three cows (All, Saint, and Sea) went to Imbereheza (“Better Future”), part of Never Again Fellowship, a collection of nine cooperatives in Eastern Rwanda focused on reconciliation and forgiveness among the formerly warring Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups.

In 2017, four more cows were funded, two for Genda Ugire Utyo (“Go and Do That”) and two for Twiyubake (“Let Us Build Ourselves Up”) Cooperatives, both part of Never Again Fellowship. A ban on the transport of livestock in East Africa from June through December of 2017 delayed the delivery of these cows. The communities waited patiently, and finally, in February of 2018, their dreams came true when four beautiful cows were delivered. The All Saints parishioners proposed 15 cow names for the communities to choose from: Angel, Cocoa, Comfort, Daisy, Flower, Frances, Gerdy, Jezebel, Leah, Milky Way, Moo, Mooshroom, Moothew, Pippi, and Temple. Everyone cast a vote, and chose the names Flower, Comfort, Angel, & Temple. See the results in the photos below, and in this VIDEO. (Note: If you’re not seeing the captions, click the “CC” box in the lower right of the video)

Voting on the Names:

3 Genda Angel name

1 Genda Temple Agnes name

Twiyu naming cow name Flower (2)

Twiyu naming cow name Comfort

Expressing thanks to All Saints:

“Our community members praying for their donors, All Saints by the Sea, for recovery from the mudslides, as the cows were delivered when those troubles were taking place.”

Genda Ugire Utyo members praying for the All Saints congregation for recovery from the mudslides which occurred a few weeks before the cows were delivered.

Anastasie: “We like this name so much. We feel that a flower is something which always makes you happy any time you look at it. The fact that our cow is given this name, we will love it the same way each one of us loves this name flower. We cannot thank our donors, All Saints by The Sea, enough.”
