Yesterday (Sunday) I had the opportunity to visit the Kigali Memorial. This is a memorial for the genocide that happened in 1994, where in 100 days an estimated 1,000,000 people were innocently murdered. It was absolutely heartbreaking to say the least. As I walked through the memorial many questions filled my head. I couldn’t help but wonder why. Why did so many innocent people have to die? And if not killed then mutilated with machetes, raped, and left for dead. I understand this was a tribal/ethnic dispute that brought about this mass killing and I know that man is evil and fallen. I know that in my head, but my heart does not understand.
Anyway, we also went to a small church today. It was very enjoyable and encouraging! We’ve also been preparing for teaching. This week we are teaching a long term group that Frank has been working with! They are very nice men and want to learn and understand God’s word better! Amen!
Ben, Patrice, and I began the morning with a 2 mile run (No worries mom, we all felt safe) and we’re enjoying some worship music as we get ready for the day. It’s a great day already! I am excited to teach about worldviews to the leaders this morning. This week, we will be teaching 20 leaders who are from all around Rwanda. This is the main group of leaders that Frank works with every time, so I am looking forward to going even deeper in our study of the Bible with these leaders.
