Please pass along to everyone that our trip to Africa is going extremely well, with all of you here in spirit.
Have heard daily testimony from Rwandan survivors, and was even at a Liberation Day ceremony on the 4th of July in which the Presidents of Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Uganda all spoke. Just awesome.
Equally as rich was when I was able to present a donation on behalf of our church for $500 to over 400 students at Gakoni High School for genocide orphans last Thursday. It was a public ceremony with all the students there sitting on the grass before us. Just beautiful.
I felt incredibly proud to be part of our congregation, and to enjoy your friendship and support. Internet too slow here to send pictures. More later, with love, Drew
