A trip to the country

We took a road trip today to southern Rwanda to visit a rural church. The drive was long, but incredibly beautiful! The “land of a thousand hills” has been rightly named. We were amazed to see people ALL along our route…even when we were far from the city. The hills are terraced and planted with various plants and crops. Very little land was unused.

We were warmly welcomed when we arrived at the church and were quite humbled when we heard them sing praises to God with their whole hearts. Their joy was evident in their faces & voices, their drumming, their clapping and their dancing. I should mention that one-fourth of their roof was missing due to recent wind damage, the floor was cobblestone, and the walls cement. The hardship and circumstances did not rob them of their joy or their faith. They were very encouraged that people in America are praying for them. Please join us in doing so.
