Jaggen and Ruth
Jaggen and Ruth, with their young children Praise and Gabriella Favor, are Burundians. Jaggen completed his Discipleship Training School (DTS) in 2005 at the YWAM Kigali Base, then returned to Burundi leading outreach teams over the next 3 years and visited other YWAM East Africa bases. The family moved together to YWAM Kigali in 2008 where Ruth undertook her DTS and Jaggen became involved in leading the course. During the course of their time in Kigali, God has been increasingly laying on their hearts a call to Burundi, and their time there has been one of great preparation and equipping for the ministry ahead. Jaggen is heading up the DTS team currently, and will lead their outreach to Burundi in October 2011.
Aloys is also a Burundian. He completed his DTS in 2009 in Kigali, where he currently works on staff, with responsibility for communications on the base. He has a passion to see salvation and discipleship for the people of Burundi, especially among children. He enjoys working with multimedia, making short films for evangelism and teaching.
