Introducing Pastor Steven from Rwanda:

Pastor Steven

Pastor Steven Turikunkiko has set up a community in Rwanda for victims of the genocide. 160 widows & teenagers & 80 younger children live with him; farming, sharing their lives and caring for those dying from AIDS. The community subsists on less than $1 per person per day.

At enormous personal sacrifice, Pastor Steven and his wife have also adopted 20 orphans - who live with them and their 2 other children.

Bankrupt Bishop resigns

Norway flagA Norwegian Bishop is to resign after his son left him bankrupt. Bishop Ernst Baasland of Stavanger was declared bankrupt in September. Reports claim that his son has amassed gambling debts of 60 million kroner (approx $10m).

Bishop Ernst has borrowed large sums of money from friends and banks in an effort to support his son. Questions remain as to whether the Bishop was entirely honest with lenders as to the reason for the loans.

Having been in post since 1998, the Bishop is now on leave and will vacate the see in June 2009.
