Career Medicine


CAREER: Doctor

GRAD DATE: July 2020


    • December 1, 2020 – I am studying General Medicine at the University of Rwanda. My dream is to see healthy communities through serving them using my medical skills!
    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Eddy said: “In our culture we have one common language (Kinyarwanda) so it is easier to communicate with everyone in the country. So as a person who preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ, it is easier for me to share the gospel in my mother language to anyone I meet.”
    • March 30, 2020 – Eddy speaks Kinyarwanda, English, some French and some Runyankore.
    • March 30, 2020 – Eddy said his favorite drink is milk.
    • September 1, 2019 – This summer Eddy spent time investing in his relationships by spending time with people. He also read a lot!
    • May 19, 2019 – My courses and the way I study is a service to God so I should try to study with excellence in mind so that it brings honor and glory to God who gave me an opportunity and resources to be studying. I also learned that leadership is a process of social influence which maximizes the effort of others towards the achievement of a goal without moral compromise.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to his life now, and his future career, Eddy said: “Servant leadership is a leadership style where a leader leads the group in the right direction by showing and leading by example. This leader considers the ideas of the followers and is their servant instead of being their boss. In my career as a doctor, servant leadership will enable me to value everyone as important, seek to put the needs of my patients first, and empathetically serve them as I would wish to be treated. This will improve their health.”
    • November 19 – 2018 – Eddy wants to be known for passion for sharing God’s love and serving his community. This semester Eddy will be transferring to a new campus and he is excited to make new friends and learn new skills!
    • July 7, 2018 – This last year the biggest challenge Eddy faced was the amount of assignments he had. He was able to overcome this by being organized and planning his time wisely for when he needed to attend classes, study groups and do his homework! This summer, he is looking forward to his internship at the hospital. He is excited to learn more and gain better skills as he furthers his career in the medical field!
    • May 12, 2018 – The two things Eddy values the most are his relationship with God and his relationship with those around him. He considers being in relationship with God a great privilege that gives him hope for the future, and having good relationships with people help him to achieve things and become a better person.
    • March 25, 2018 – When Eddy was younger, he wanted to be a doctor because he saw people who were in need of a doctor but weren’t able to receive the medical assistance they needed and he wanted to help! In five years, he hopes to fulfill this dream by being a medical specialist doctor!
    • February 27, 2018 – Eddy’s nickname growing up was Atu which comes from his Ugandan name Atukwase. Eddy said that Jesus Christ is who inspires him to love, serve and do his best to change the world!
    • January 25, 2018 – A book that Eddy read and loved was, What is the Gospel? by Greg Gilbert. A line that really stood out to him while reading it was, “The gospel is the good news about what Jesus has done to reconcile sinners to God.”
    • November 11, 2017 – Eddy is thankful that God opened the door for him to be a part of the These Numbers Have Faces family! He loves the Christmas season because it reminds him of God’s grace and that He sent His son down to save us.


T. & K. West – Portland, OR


Eddy grew up as the oldest of 10 siblings in a small community in Uganda, where his family and neighbors lived by farming bananas, maize, and beans. From his village, he learned the importance of hard work and education, even in the face of obstacles and different life circumstances.  Eddy is currently studying Medicine at University of Rwanda with the dream of providing health care to people in need of it as well as promoting it. Rather than working in a hospital, he wants to meet unique community health needs and serve families with special needs and kids in the foster care system.  Besides his academic schedule, he serves the Lord Jesus Christ in the Christian Union on his campus called” University Bible Group” and He is in charge of coordinating evangelism activities. He is spiritually born again saved from God wrath by God’s Grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone for the Glory of God alone and this guides his thoughts, decisions, and behaviors and He is also committed to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to others as well as doing discipleship on campus.  His hobby is visiting and conversing with people.  Eddy is grateful to all people who believe in him and give him the opportunity to grow and acquire knowledge, skills and experiences. It is through such opportunities, hard work, discipline, and optimism that he excelled academically in his secondary school with higher scores that earned him a medical course he is currently studying.
