The future on her back.
This trip has been mentally exhausting for me. So much information in such a short time. It has also been a trip of contrasts. From the glitz and glamour that is the new Kigali city to the poverty of the Rwandan countryside.
I have been inspired by the work of TearFund, AESD and Gilgal Church. At last I finally get it, I feel I understand what our brothers and sisters in Rwanda are doing and how they are doing it.
Today was a day of celebration in Gilgal Church and rightly so but the final photograph I took on leaving just about sums up the whole trip for me. This mother is carrying the future of Rwanda on her back and we as Christians and members of Bloomfield Presbyterian Church are privileged to be playing a small part in securing the future of her, her child and many others like them.
Tomorrow we start our journey home and will soon be back with you. In signing off, can I say a BIG thank you for your faithfulness in praying for us throughout this trip.
May God bless you all.
