Meet Welcome in Eric’s new ad: How faith and vision grew a family

FORT WAYNE, IN – Meet Welcome Kabayiza and learn about her incredible journey from Rwanda to Fort Wayne, in a new ad released by the Doden campaign today. The ad tells the story of how Welcome joined the Doden family and how the power of faith and vision transforms lives.

“Eric Doden is a man of faith, and he puts his faith to work transforming lives,” Welcome says in the ad. “How do I know? Because Eric changed my life.”


“As a teenager, I left Rwanda and the Dodens took me in and made me part of their family,” Welcome says. “Eric Doden will be an amazing governor for Indiana.”

As the grandson of a preacher, Eric Doden is guided by his faith and small-town values. He has spent his life working to impact those around him by putting his faith to work.

With developed plans to invest in rural Indiana, create thriving economic regions, and provide zero-cost adoption, Eric Doden presents solutions for the challenges Hoosiers face that are rooted in conservative, community-focused values to create a state where all 92 counties are thriving.
