Bob Bradberry, who supervises Saddleback's training here, says the point isn't to give the Rwandans things.
It's to train them to do things for themselves.That starts with "purpose-driven training," in which parts of Warren's book (such as Chapter 20 on reconciliation) are applied to problems (such as the bitterness that lingers from the genocide).
About 100,000 copies of The Purpose Driven Life in the Rwandan dialect have been handed out.Bradberry
says that if Rwandans really hear the Gospel, they'll have no choice but to forgive each other.
Results were discussed at a meeting of ministers last week.

Warren is perhaps the most influential Christian evangelist since Billy Graham — on Monday he
would convene both U.S. presidential candidates at Saddleback next month — but he
can't solve every problem overnight.
"We get a little more attention here than we should get because of Rick's notoriety," Bradberry
