What a privilege to be able to share with the Harvest Christian Church in their first ever marriage retreat. There are about fifty couples here at the retreat center (Rwanda style). The husbands have been here for over a week and the wives arrived yesterday from every province in Rwanda. This was the first trip to Kigali for over twenty of these women. (I am reminded of my grandmother who was thirteen when she took her first trip to Danville, VA.
Last night was great. The church leader’s wives who had never met each other bonded quickly in an all-women’s gathering in the afternoon. Then the larger group came together in song and dance filled with joy.
This morning I shared Ephesians 5:21-33 with both husbands and wives. Their response was very positive. They seemed to connect well with Paul’s words and the vision he presents for Christian marriage.
I am now at the airport waiting for my flight to the USA. While I am extremely anxious to get home, I am also dreaming and preparing for my next trip to Rwanda.
