Why Rwanda? Why Us?
Questions which we ask ourselves continually. We were first asked about going to Rwanda about 3 years ago. At that time Paul was unwell and not working, so the timing was not right. We then never really gave it much thought until Graham once again approached us and asked Rwanda, what do you think?
Again the answer was not yet.
What we were waiting for we didn't know at the time but actually God was waiting for us. So here we are in September 2013 with less than 6 days to go until we head off to Kigali in Rwanda with Comfort Rwanda. We have read a few books now on Rwanda and each one seems to detail the horrific atrocities which occurred during the genocide of 1994.
The one great thing which is repeated all along is that God was and is always present whatever anyone of His children may face. To the people of Rwanda at that time it probably didn't feel like He was, but to read and listen to their stories it is more than clear that God alone can heal, restore and enable people to forgive.
Paul and I feel so humbled and unworthy to be actually going to meet some of these people.
