My friend and former RTS Jackson student, and Ugandan missionary to Rwanda, Gerald Sseruwagi unexpectedly died yesterday.
Gerald had an amazing testimony and lived his life for the Lord courageously. He was disowned by his family after becoming a Christian and as a boy grew up on the streets in Kampala, Uganda.
He eventually earned two Master’s degrees at RTS Jackson and then went back to Africa to plant churches and minister to the destitute. In March of last year, Gerald and his family moved to Kigali, Rwanda where Gerald began serving as the first Principal for Africa College of Theology (ACT).
ACT said in a statement today: “In addition to his tireless work in developing a firm foundation for ACT, Gerald served as a mentor, pastor, friend and a father figure for many Africa New Life staff, ACT students and pastors in the local community. Our hearts are heavy. Our loss is incalculable.”
Gerald is survived by his wife, Robina and their four children, Bethany (10), Aaron (8), Jonathan (6) and Yosef (4).
