I love honey – because it is sweet – and I like sweet! Every morning I have Rwandan honey, preferably with “fresh” Rwandan bread, and always Rwandan coffee. The only thing that makes it even better is a beautiful sunrise and my Bible. The Psalmist says, “your words…are sweeter than honey.”
This week we have been studying Genesis with twenty-four church leaders from all five provinces of Rwanda. We have eaten together, laughed together, danced together, but best of all we have studied God’s Word together. I am continually amazed at the desire these leaders have to know the Bible. One of my biggest surprises of the week was to discover these leaders are recording the teaching on their phones and listening to it at night. One night Ben found some of them sleeping and the recording was still playing. It has been a joy to share the week with Ben and Alison and Rwandan church leaders who love God’s Word.
These leaders have now gone home with a deeper understanding of Genesis, God's Good News, and a commitment to share the teachings with their churches and other church leaders.
Happy are those who…
…love the Lord’s teachings, and they think about those teachings day and night.
Psalm 1:1-2 New Century Version
