This is my first time to Rwanda and my first time to Africa, so it has been wonderful to meet Theophile and several other Rwandans here. I can already tell that this is a beautiful country with beautiful people. When Frank and I were walking off the plane yesterday, he asked a lady how she was doing, and she said, "I am blessed!." What a beautiful response, and it resembles the attitudes of most Rwandans. I can already tell that while I will help teach the church leaders this month, the Rwandans will teach me much more!
Frank and I were able to get lots of sleep last night, so we are both rested and ready for the next few weeks. This morning, the food did not settle so well, so I spent some more time in bed after getting sick. I am feeling much better this afternoon though, and I will be spending the rest of the day helping to prepare for our ministry. I am definitely excited for the weeks to come. I am blessed!
