The East African Revival began in Rwanda in 1920's. A remarkable movement that commemorates the first- break through of the Holy Spirit at Gahini, Rwanda. A young Cambridge doctor, Joe Church, arrived at Gahini a Mission station in Rwanda. His first year was dominated by the experience of a severe famine throughout Rwanda, physically and spiritually exhausted, he sault the filling of the Holy Spirit with an African brother, Semyoni Nsibambi.
The revival that began in the hearts of Church and Nsibambi spread through the entire staff of the Gahini hospital, culminating in the conversion several people. The first evangelistic team of the revival was formed. With the formation of evangelistic teams, the revival spread from personal dedication to evangelistic zeal.
This year the Council of Anglican province of Africa (CAPA) met in Kigali, Rwanda for a three day retreat, this included delegates from Kenya.
