Master Development Plan

May 25, 2013

The number of masters of Taekwondo in Rwanda is growing at an alarming rate. Why is it alarming? Because, our goal is to help every master in Rwanda Taekwondo Federation to have a life strategy, receive an education, get a job or start businesses, and most importantly, become disciples of Jesus that make other disciples.

Sounds crazily ambitious and those who know me also know that I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Currently there are forty-four masters of TKD in Rwanda that we have trained and certified. The problem we face is that each year that number is doubling! That would have us at over 700 masters by 2016!


How can we possibly help that many masters stay in school, help them get employed, develop life strategies, etc…? The possibility is found in equipping instead of managing. To manage can be defined as “to dominate or influence someone by tact, flatter, or artifice. Inherently management reserves power for one or a few. To equip is defined as “to furnish with intellectual, physical, or emotional resources that are needed for use or undertaking. By nature, equipping transfers power from one to many.

The vision of our organization, Africa Transformation Network, is to create Kingdom Communities of Obedient Disciples Transforming and Redeeming Rwanda.

My belief is that the equipping of these masters and the natural transference and discipleship inherent to Taekwondo gives us the opportunity to carry out ATN’s vision in a very unique and explosive way.

Can you imagine with me the effect of these masters developing other masters, investing in them, and blessing them from their own experiences of transformed lives?

This is the aim.
This is the hope.

This is why I am investing the best working years of my life in the people of Rwanda and I believe it is a worthy investment for you too.

    Your job is to help….God will do the rest. He always provides whatever is needed at the time…and not a minute sooner.

    My time is in Your hands, my purpose is Your will, I know that You’ll provide, so I’ll be still.

    Keep looking up! Carolyn
