SURVIVORS OF THE RWANDAN

GENOCIDE BECOME

ENTREPRENEURS.

ALL THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

THERE IS LITTLE HOPE FOR

SUCCESS IN MIDDLE EAST PEACE

TALKS.

GOOD EVENING, I'M MARK

MARTIN.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

PALESTINIAN LEADERS SAY

THEY'RE PREPARED TO APPLY

FOR STATE OF PALESTINIAN

RECOGNITION WITH MORE

INTERNATIONAL AGENCIES IF

PEACE TALKS WITH ISRAEL

FAIL.

A STATEMENT THAT ISRAEL SEES

AS COUNTER-PRODUCTIFF

COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE TO THOSE

TALKS.

Reporter: THE

U.S.-BACKED PEACE CRISIS,

BOTH SIDES ARE BLAMING THE

OTHER FOR THE BLAKEDOWN.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU WARNED

PALESTINIANS NOT TO TAKE

MORE UNILATERAL STEPS.

Translator: UNILATERAL

STEPS ON THEIR PART WILL BE

ANSWERED BA BY UNLATTER

UNILATERAL STEPS ON OUR

SIDE.

WE'RE WILLING TO CONTINUE

WITH THE TALKS, BUT NOT AT

ANY COST.

Reporter: THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY AP

PLIEF APPLIED TO BECOME

PART OF 15 ORGANIZATIONS ARE

TREATIES, AND THAT WOULD

GIVE THEM DEFACTO

NEGOTIATION AS A STATE.

PALESTINIANS RIOTED

FOLLOWING ISRAEL'S DECISION

NOT TO RELEASE PALESTINIANS

TERRORISTS UNLESS THE

PALESTINIANS COMMITTED TO

CONTINUING THE TALKS.

CHIEF PALESTINIAN NEGOTIATOR

SAEED BLAMED ISRAEL, BUT

SAID IT WAS UP TO THE TWO

SIDES TO MAKE PEACE.

JOHN KERRY HAS HAD

UNWAVERING COMMITMENT.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,

THE DECISION WILL HAVE TO BE

MADE BY THE PALESTINIANS AND

THE ISRAELIS.

Reporter: THE STATE

DEPARTMENT SAID LAST WEEK

THAT KER KE KERRY IS STILL

COMMITTED.

FOR NOW, IT IS NOT CLEAR HOW

THE IMPASSE COULD BE

RESOLVED.

EXPERTS SAY NEITHER SIDE

REALLY WANTS TO SEE THE

TALKS BREAK DOWN, BUT SOME

SAY IT IS NO GREAT LOSS IF

THEY DO.

JULIE STAHL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Mark: DR. PAUL BON

BONCELLI, EXECUTIVE VICE

PRESIDENT OF REGENT JOINS US

NOW.

GREAT TO BE WITH YOU.

Mark: WE'RE USED TO

SEEING THE STALEMATES ON A

REGULAR BASIS.

IS THIS TIME ANY DIFFERENT?

I THINK IT IS DIFFERENT

BECAUSE THE ONE PROMOTING

THE AGREEMENT, SECRETARY

TERRY, HAS BEEN TH KERRY

HAS WANTED THIS FOR A LONG

TIME.

HE THINKS A LOT OF HIS

ABILITIES, AND I THINK HE

REALLY THOUGHT HE WOULD PULL

IT OFF, SO HE HAS PUT A LOT

INTO IT.

IT HAS BEEN NERVE-RACKING

FOR BOTH SIDES, PARTICULARLY

THE ISRAELIS AND THE

AMERICAN SUPPORTERS, BUT

THAT'S THE ONLY THING THAT

IS DIFFERENT.

OTHERWISE IT IS THE SAME

SONG, DIFFERENT VERSE.

Mark: IT IS A LITTLE

HUMBLING FOR SECRETARY KERRY

THEN.

IT CERTAINLY IS.

Mark: HE SAYS THE U.S.

NEEDS TO RE-EVALUATE ITS

ROLE IN THE SITUATION.

DO YOU THINK THAT'S TRUE?

I DON'T THINK THAT IS

ACCURATE.

PRESIDENT BUSH HINTED

SOMETIMES THAT BOTH SIDES

NEEDED TO DO MORE.

THE TRUTH IS ISRAEL CAN ONLY

DO WHAT IT IS DOING NOW.

IT CANNOT CEASE BUILDING

SETTLEMENTS WHERE IT IS

ALREADY CONTROLLING

TERRITORY FOR ITS SECURITY

REASONS.

ABU ABBAS IS TOO WEAK TO

TAKE ON THE TERRORIST

FACTIONS.

SO EVERYBODY IS DOING ALL

THEY CAN DO.

THE WAY THE UNITED STATES

GOES IN AND PRE-JUDGES

EVERYTHING AND TELLS THEM

WHAT THEY EXPECT THEM TO DO

BEFORE THEY NEGOTIATE IS

ALWAYS A MISTAKE.

Mark: IF THE

PALESTINIANS GO THROUGH WITH

THEIR THREAT, DO YOU THINK

THERE CAN EVER BE PEACE

TALKS, AND HOW WOULD ISRAEL

RESPOND TO THAT?

IT IS HARD TO SAY THERE

WOULD NEVER BE PEACE TALKS,

BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE TWO

OR THREE ISRAELI GOVERNMENTS

BEFORE YOU WOULD SEE ONE

WILLING TO COMPROMISE WITH

THE PALESTINIANS IF THEY

START DECLARING THEMSELVES A

STATE.

Mark: WHAT IS THE

DANGER IF THE PEACE TALKS

FALL APART ALL TOGETHER

AGAIN?

I HONESTLY DON'T THINK IT

IS ANY MORE DANGEROUS

TOMORROW IF THE PEACE TALKS

FAIL TOMORROW IF THEY HAVE

NOT FAILED TODAY.

EVERYONE KNOWS THIS GAME.

IT HAS BEEN FOUR

PRESIDENCIES GOING THROUGH

THIS AND NOTHING HAS REALLY

CHANGED.

UNTIL THE PALESTINIANS WANT

TO BE A DEMOCRACY AND

CONFRONT TERROR, THERE WILL

NEVER BE A TWO-STATE

SOLUTION.

Mark: AND UNTIL THEY

ACKNOWLEDGE ISRAEL AS A

LEGITIMATE STATE.

ABSOLUTELY.

Mark: THANKS SO MUCH

FOR YOUR TIME AND INSIGHTS.

MY PLEASURE.

Wendy: A POTENTIAL

BREAKTHROUGH IN THE SEARCH

FOR MISSING MALAYSIAN FLIGHT

370.

AUSTRALIAN OFFICIALS SAY A

PING LOCATOR DETECTED TWO

SIGNALS THAT COULD BE COMING

FROM THE AIRPLANE'S BLACK

BOX.

KATCAITLIN BURKE HAS MORE.

Reporter: THERE IS NEW

HOPE OF FINDING MALAYSIAN

AIRLINES FLIGHT 370.

CLEARLY, THIS IS THE MOST

PROMISING LEAD IN THE SEARCH

SO FAR.

Reporter: SEARCH SHIPS

PICKED UP TWO SIGNALS IN THE

INDIAN OCEAN, SOUNDING

SOMETHING LIKE THIS...

[PINGING SOUND]

THIS THI WOULD BE FROM

THE FLIGHT COCKPIT AND THE

VOICE RECORDER.

Reporter: IT WAS

DETECTED FOR NEARLY TWO AND

A HALF HOURS SATURDAY, AND

THEN AGAIN FOR 13 MINUTES ON

SUNDAY.

THIS NEW LEAD ALLOWS THEM TO

ZERO IN ON A VERY SMALL

AREA.

BUT SEARCH TEAMS WANT TO

HEAR A THIRD PING TO NARROW

IT DOWN EVEN FURTHER.

THAT WILL BE THE TRIGGER

TO LAUNCH THE AUTONOMOUS

UNDERWATER VEHICLE WITH A

POTENTIALLY CAMERA FOR

MAPPING AND VISUALLY LOOKING

AT THE OCEAN'S FLOOR.

Reporter: THAT WILL

TAKE PLACE ABOUT THREE MILES

BELOW THE SURFACE.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR

TEAMS TO LOCATE THE BLACK

BOXES.

THE BATTERIES WERE ONLY

SUPPOSED TO BE AT FULL

STRENGTH THROUGH THIS

WEEKEND.

BUT THE MANUFACTURERS SAY

THERE COULD BE A FEW MORE

DAYS OF PINGS.

EXPERTS WARN THAT IT COULD

STILL BE DAYS BEFORE

AUTHORITIES DECIDE WHETHER

THE SIGNAL IS ACTUALLY

COMING FROM THE PLANE'S

COCKPIT VOICE AND DATA

RECORDERS, AND THEN IT COULD

BE MONTHS BEFORE ANY

WRECKAGE IS FOUND.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Mark: THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY IS HAILING

AFGHANISTAN'S PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION AS A TRIUMPH OF

DEMOCRACY OVER VIOLENCE.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE VOTED

THIS WEEKEND DESPITE TALIBAN

THREATS OF MASS VIOLENCE.

AT LEAST TWO SUICIDE BOMBS

HAVE BEEN REPORTED.

BUT THE MAJOR ATTACKS THAT

HAD BEEN FEARED DID NOT

HAPPEN.

IT MAY BE SEVERAL WEEKS

BEFORE THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS

ANNOUNCED.

THE WINNER NEEDS TO SECURE

MORE THAN 50% OF THE VOTES

OR THERE WILL BE A RUNOFF

ELECTION IN MAY.

Wendy: A NEW WORRY

RUSSIA MAY SOON TRY TO MOVE

INTO OTHER PARTS OF UKRAINE,

THAT'S BECAUSE PROTESTORS

THERE BE DEMANDING A

REFERENDUM ON JOINING

RUSSIA.

SOME ARE EVEN CALLING FOR

VLADIMIR PUTIN TO SEND

RUSSIAN TROOPS INTO THEIR

COUNTRY.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: HUNDREDS OF

PRO-RUSSIA DEMONSTRATORS

TUSSLED WITH POLICE IN

EASTERN UKRAINE.

PROTESTORS PELTED GOVERNMENT

BUILDINGS WITH EGGS, STONES,

AND SMOKE GRENADES.

GUNMEN ALSO OCCUPIED A

SECURITY SERVICES BUILDING

IN THE CITY OF LUHANSK.

DEMONSTRATORS STORMED

GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS,

DEMANDING THAT REFERENDUMS

BE HELD TO GIVE THEM THE

OPTION TO JOIN RUSSIA.

THE UNREST COMES WITH THE

ECONOMY IN TATTERS AFTER

DECADES OF MISMANAGEMENT AND

GOVERNMENT THEFT.

ADDING FUEL TO THE FIRE,

RUSSIAN TROOPS HAVE BEEN

MASSING ON UKRAINE'S BORDERS

FOR WEEKS.

SOME OF THE SAME FORCES WHO

SEIZED THE BLACK SEA

PENINSULA OF CRIMEA.

GENERAL MICHAEL HADEN SPOKE

ABOUT VLADIMIR PUTIN AND THE

CRISIS IN CRIMEA.

I THINK HE HAS GOTTEN

WHAT HE NEEDS INTERNALLY AND

POLITICALLY FOR HIS POLL

RATINGS, FRANKLY.

I THINK THOSE TROOPS ALONG

THE BORDER ARE HIS TABLE

STAKES, TO KEEP PRESSURE ON

THE UKRAINE, TO MAKE, FOR

EXAMPLE, OUR SECRETARY OF

STATE CHANGE HIS TRAVEL

PLANS AND GO BACK TO EUROPE

TO MEET WITH FOREIGN

MINISTER LAVROV.

THEY COULD TAKE THE EASTERN

PART OF THE UKRAINE IN THREE

OR FOUR DAYS.

KEEPING IT IS ANOTHER

MATTER.

Reporter MATTER.

NOW, THERE REMAINS A

RADICAL CIRCLE OF PEOPLE,

ABOUT 1,000 TO 1500 IN EACH

REGION, WHO SPEAK WITH A

SPECIFIC RUSSIAN ACCENT, TO

COORDINATE THEIR ACTIONS

WITH SPECIAL GROUPS FROM

FOREIGN COUNTRIES.

AND YESTERDAY THEY CAUSED

UNREST BY SEIZING

ADMINISTRATIVE BUILDINGS AND

DESTABILIZING THE

SITUATION.

Reporter: HE SAYS

RUSSIA HELPED ORCHESTRATE

THE OCCUPATIONS TO CREATE AN

EXCUSE FOR A FULL-OUT

INVASION, TO PERSON UKRAINE

FOR OUSTING ITS PRED, VIKTOR

YANUKOVYCH.

DATA STATING THAT THE

RUSSIAN FEDERATION PULLED

BACK THEIR TROOPS FROM THE

UKRAINIAN BORDER IS THEM

PRETENDING THEY SORT OF

PULLED OUT THEIR TROOPS.

IN FACT, THEIR TROOPS ARE

NOW 30 KILOMETRES AWAY FROM

THE UKRAINIAN BORDER.

Mark: PRAY FOR

UKRAINE.

IN OTHER NEWS, PRESIDENT

OBAMA PLANS TO ATTEND A

MEMORIAL SERVICE THIS

WEDNESDAY FOR THE VICTIMS OF

LAST WEEK'S MASS SHOOTING AT

FORT HOOD.

MEANWHILE, DOZENS GATHERED

AT A CHURCH OUTSIDE THE BASE

ON SUNDAY TO HONOR THE THREE

SOLDIERS KILLED AND TO PRAY

FOR THE PEOPLE IVAN LOPEZ

INJURED BEFORE TAKING HIS

OWN LIFE.

31-YEAR-OLD DION JOSEPHS IS

AMONG THOSE SERIOUSLY

INJURED.

HE WAS SHOT IN THE SHOULDER

AND SPINE, AND HE WAS

ACTUALLY FRIENDS WITH THE

SHOOTER.

HE WAS FRIENDS WITH HIM.

IN THE SAME UNIT.

HIS OTHER BUDDY TOLD ME

THAT THE PEOPLE HE WAS

CLOSEST TO, THOSE WERE THE

ONES HE SEEMED TO HAVE TRIED

TO TARGET.

Mark: THIS IS THE

SECOND FATAL SHOOTING

RAMPAGE ON THE BASE IN FIVE

YEARS.

Wendy: THE SUPREME

COURT WON'T HEAR A CASE

INVOLVING A PHOTOGRAPHY

COMPANY'S REFUSAL TO SHOOT A

GAY COMMITMENT CEREMONY.

THE OWNERS OF ELAINE

PHOTOGRAPHY DECLINED THE JOB

DUE TO THEIR RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS.

THAT LED TO A DISCRIMINATION

COMPLAINT, AND A LENGTHY

COURT BATTLE THAT MADE IT

ALL THE WAY TO THE STATE

SUPREME COURT.

THE PHOTOGRAPHERS SAY THEIR

DECISION SHOULD BE PROTECTED

BY FREE SPEECH RIGHTS, BUT

THE NEW MEXICO SUPREME COURT

DISAGREED, CAUSING AN APPEAL

TO THE SUPREME COURT.

SOME THINK THE HIGH COURT'S

DECISION IS A THREAT TO

LIBERTY.

RANDY FORBES SAYS BY

REFUSING TO TAKE THIS CASE,

THE COURT IS REFUSING TO

PROTECT SOME OF OUR MOST

FUNDAMENTAL FIRST AMENDMENT

FREEDOMS.

Mark: COMING UP,

PRAYING FOR ANOTHER PENT

PENTECOST.

WE NEED IT.

A LOOK AT THE EMPOWERED 21

MONDAY.

Mark: COULD THE WORLD

EXPERIENCE A SECOND

PENTECOST?

THAT'S THE HOPE OF A GLOBAL

MOVEMENT CALLED EMPOWERED

21.

Wendy: ITS ORGANIZERS

ARE SETTING ITS SIGHTS ON

WHERE THE FIRST PENTECOST

TOOK PLACE.

RECENTLY CHRISTIAN

LEADERS CAME FROM AROUND THE

WORLD TO JERUSALEM, TO

WORSHIP, PRAY, AND PLAN FOR

WHAT THEY CALL EMPOWERED

21.

IT'S AMAZING TO SEE HOW

MANY WONDERFUL LEADERS GOD

HAS RAISED UP TO PARTNER

WITH THIS GOAL OF SEEING

EVERY INDIVIDUAL TOUCHED BY

A REAL ENCOUNTER WITH THE

HOLY SPIRIT BY THE YEAR

2033.

TONIGHT WE STAND ON

HISTORY AND WE COME TO

WORSHIP THE KING OF

JERUSALEM, WHO IS OUR LORD

JESUS.

Reporter: ORAL ROBERTS'

UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT BILLY

WILSON SERVES AS THE

DIRECTOR OF EMPOWERED 21.

THE BIG VISION IS EVERY

PERSON ON EARTH WILL HAVE AN

AUTHENTIC ENCOUNTER WITH

JESUS CHRIST THROUGH THE

POWER AND PRESENCE OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT BY PENTECOST

2033.

Reporter: THE FIRST

PENTECOST RECORDED 2,000

YEARS AGO TOOK PLACE ON

MT. ZION BEHIND ME.

THE NEXT PENTECOST, MAY

2015, THEY ARE INVITING

CHRISTIANS FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD TO PRAY FOR A FRESH

PENTECOST TO A NEW

GENERATION.

IN ACTS 1: 8, JESUS SAID,

"AFTER THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES

ON YOU, YOU'LL BE MY

WITNESSES."

THE SO THE THEME OF THE

CONGRESS IS TO THE ENDS OF

THE EARTH.

WE'RE CALLING BELIEVERS FROM

AROUND THE WORLD TO CONVERGE

BACK ON JERUSALEM, TO

CELEBRATE THE HOLY SPIRIT,

AND TO LOOK AT WHAT IT MEANS

TO BE SPIRIT-FILLED IN THE

21st CENTURY AND TO PRAY

FOR A NEW GENERATION TO

EXPERIENCE GOD.

Reporter: AS THEY

PREPARE TO PASS THE

SPIRITUAL BATON TO A NEW

GENERATION, THESE LEADERS

SAY THEY ALREADY SEE GOD AT

WORK.

THEY ARE DOING

TRANSFORMATION AMONG THE

LEADERS IN INDIA.

I SEE THE EMPOWERMENT 21

AS THAT BODY COMING TOGETHER

AGAIN.

SO IMPORTANT, SO NECESSARY.

WHEN BROTHERN GATHER

TOGETHER IN UNITY, THE LORD

COMMANDS A BLESSING THERE.

I BELIEVE THE BLESSING OF

THE END TIME IS THE

OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

Reporter: THE LEADERS

REPRESENTED THE SPECTRUM OF

CHARISMATIC AND PENTECOSTAL

GROUPS.

IT IS REALLY IN TIMES

THAT ALL OF THE STREAMS WILL

COME TOGETHER WITH THE

MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD.

IT IS JUST SOMETHING WE

DREAMED OF.

Reporter: THEIR NEXT

DREAM IS PENTECOST 2015.

TO EXPERIENCE A FRESH

PENTECOST IN OUR GENERATION

WILL BE LIFE-CHANGING.

SO YOU'RE LIFE WILL NEVER BE

THE SAME IF YOU COME MAY

2015 TO THE EMPOWERED 21

GLOBAL CONGRESS.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Wendy: UP NEXT, FROM

ECONOMIC RUIN FOR HOMEGROWN

ENTREPRENEURSHIP, HOW SOME

IN RWANDA ARE THRIVING 20

YEARS AFTER THE GENOCIDE

THERE.

Wendy: TODAY MARKS THE

20th ANNIVERSARY OF THE

RWANDAN GENOCIDE.

MORE THAN A MILLION PEOPLE

WERE KILLED DURING THE 100

DAY MASSACRE.

THE COUNTRY'S PRESIDENT AND

UNITED NATIONS

SECRETARY-GENERAL BAN

KI-MOON LIT A FLAME AT THE

MEMORIAL IN MEMORY OF THOSE

KILLED.

AND THOUSANDS ARE

REMEMBERING THE LOSS AT A

CANDLELIGHT CEREMONY

TONIGHT.

IT WAS CARRIED OUT BY

EXTREMIST HUTUS GENS TUTIS.

NOW THEIR ECONOMY HAS BECOME

ONE OF AFRICA'S SURPRISING

SUCCESS STORIES.

Mark: ONE REASON,

HOMEGROWN ENTREPRENEURS.

AND REGENT UNIVERSITY IS

HELPING HUNDREDS OF RWANDANS

TURN BRIGHT IDEAS INTO

THRIVING BUSINESSES.

*

Reporter: RWANDA WAS

ONCE CALLED A TROPICAL

SWITZERLAND IN THE HEART OF

AFRICA.

TODAY THAT BEAUTY HAS

RETURNED TO THE LANDSCAPE

AND TO THE FACES IN THIS

EAST AFRICAN NATION.

WHEN YOU LOOK AROUND IN

TOWN, YOU CAN SEE THE

COUNTRY HAS A DIRECTION.

Reporter: MANY CREDIT

PRESIDENT PAUL KAGAMI FOR

GIVING THE COUNTRY THAT

DIRECTION.

HE WANTS HIS PEOPLE TO

HAVE OWNERSHIP.

Reporter: IT WAS

KUGANDI WHO LED ITS PEOPLE

OUT OF GENOCIDE IN 1994.

THIS LAND OF A THOUSAND

HILLS SAW NEARLY A MILLION

PEOPLE KILLED IN JUST 100

DAYS OF ETHIC VIOLENCE.

DURING THAT TIME, SERGE

RETURNED TO RWANDA FROM

CONGO AND JOINED THE ARMY IN

FIGHTING.

THERE WERE SO MANY

PROBLEMS GOING ON.

AT ONE TIME YOU HAVE ONE

GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

KILLING THE OTHERS.

AND YOU ALSO HAVE ANOTHER

GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

WORKING HARD TO STOP THE

KILLING AND TO ALSO BRING

BACK SO MANY RWANDANS WHO

WERE LIVING OUTSIDE OF THE

COUNTRY.

AND THAT'S ONE THING I'M

PROUD OF BEING RWANDAN, THAT

WE SOLVED OUR OWN PROBLEMS.

Reporter: SERGE IS NOW

HELPING BOOST HIS COUNTRY'S

GROWING ECONOMY.

HE OWNS JAYLIN'S BAKERY, A

SPOT FOR PEOPLE TO

SOCIALIZE, SATISFY THEIR

SWEET TOOTH, AND EVEN GRAB A

FRESHLY BAKED BAGEL.

IT IS ONLY TWO AND A HALF

MONTHS THAT WE ARE HERE, AND

IT IS A SUCCESS.

Reporter: HE BEGAN

WRITING HIS BUSINESS PLAN AS

A STUDENT AT RWANDA'S

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER,

OR B.B.C.

IT IS A HANDS-ON SCHOOL

CREATED BY REGENT UNIVERSITY

FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP.

IT CHANGED WHAT I KNEW

ABOUT BUSINESS.

ONE THING I REMEMBER IS THEY

TAUGHT US TO DO BUSINESS NOT

FROM OUR HEADS, BUT FROM OUR

HEART.

Reporter: SERGE IS ONE

OF 200 ENTREPRENEURS WHO

LEARNED TO BUILD A

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS THROUGH

THE REGENT'S DEVELOPMENT

CENTER HERE IN RWANDA.

THAT KIND OF SUCCESS HAS

ALLOWED THE SCHOOL TO EXPAND

ITS PROGRAM TO UGANDA AND

INDIA.

JASON BENEDICT HELPED TO GET

THE CENTER RUNNING.

THE GOVERNMENT HERE IN

RWANDA THREW THE DOOR OPEN

FOR US AND SAID, WE WANT TO

BE THE FIRST.

SO THEY ACTUALLY HELPED MAKE

THAT HAPPEN.

WE ARE AMONG ONE OF THE

FASTEST GROWING ECONOMIES IN

AFRICA.

AND A PLACE WHERE DOING

BUSINESS IS CONVENIENT.

Reporter: JUMBUSCO IS

THE DEVELOPMENT CENTER'S

C.E.O.

THE FORMER BANKING EXECUTIVE

IS ALSO A GRADUATE, WITH TWO

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY

HAVE AVAILABLE A PROFITABLE

BUSINESS.

Reporter: THE B.B.C.

PAIRS GRADUATES WITH MENTORS

FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

JOHN BOSKO SEES AN EVEN

BIGGER LESSON TAUGHT BY THE

SCHOOL.

HOW DO YOU GIVE BACK TO

THE COMMUNITY?

HOW DO YOU SUPPORT OTHER

INDIVIDUALS TO REACH THEIR

FULL POTENTIAL?

Reporter: THAT LESSON

COMES TO LIFE BACK AT

JAYLIN'S BAKERY.

THE SHOP IS NAMED AFTER

SERGE'S WIFE, JENNIFER LYNN,

WHO CAME TO RWANDA FROM

CANADA AS A MISSIONARY.

THEY SAID TO FIND A

BUSINESS THAT YOU HAVE THE

SKILL.

AND YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO WILL

WORK WITH YOU WHO HAVE THE

SKILL.

I REMEMBER IN MY OWN FAMILY,

I HAVE A WIFE WHO IS AN

EXTENT BAKER.

IT WAS, LIKE, HERE IS A

GIFT FROM GOD.

THAT'S HOW WE'RE TREATING

THIS PLACE.

IT'S A GIFT.

SO WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR

THAT.

Reporter: SERGE AND

JENNIFER EMPLOY 20 PEOPLE.

17 OF THEM STRUGGLING

WOMEN.

THEY ALL COME FROM

SITUATIONS WHERE THEY WOULD

NOT BE ABLE TO PAY THE RENT,

PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE, PAY

FOR SCHOOL FEELS FOR THEIR

CHILDREN.

AND THEY EARN A SMALL SALARY

HERE, SO THEY'RE ABLE TO DO

SOME OF THAT.

WE HELP THEM OUT WITH THEIR

MEDICAL NEEDS ON TOP OF

THAT.

Reporter: AS THEY LEARN

TO MAKE COOKIES, CAKES, AND

CUPCAKES, SERGE AND JENNIFER

WORK TO --

TO GET THEM TO DREAM.

TO EVEN THINK THEY WERE

CREATED WITH PURPOSE, AND

THAT THEY HAVE A ROLE IN THE

KINGDOM.

IT IS NOT ABOUT MAKING MONEY

AT ALL.

Reporter: THIS BAKERY

IS A MINI BUSINESS

DEVELOPMENT CENTER.

THE SAME FOUNDATIONAL

SORT OF STUFF.

IN 18 MONTHS TO TWO YEARS,

THEY HAVE A FEASIBLE

BUSINESS PLAN.

THEY CAN GO AND IMPLEMENT

THEIR BUSINESS, AND WE'LL

HELP THEM DO THAT WITH

WHATEVER THEY HAVE.

THEY SAVE SOME CAPITAL, AND

WE'LL ADD TO IT.

THEY CAN START THEIR OWN

ENTREPRENEURIAL BUSINESSES.

IT IS GREAT THAT THEY WORK

HERE.

I LOVE EACH ONE OF THEM.

YOU KNOW?

BUT I WANT THEM TO MOVE

BEYOND ME.

Reporter: IT IS A

CONCEPT THAT CAN ONLY ADD TO

THE COUNTRY'S BEAUTY.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS,

MORE THAN 300 FILMS AND TV

LATER IN LIFE, ROONEY BECOME

A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN AND

TALKED OPENLY ABOUT THE

IMPORTANCE OF KNOWING JESUS
