Rwanda Day 2 - July 11, 2019

Our morning started around 8:00 a.m, as we started our first full day in Kigali. Over breakfast we had a chance to connect and talk about our journey to Rwanda. Brian shared Hebrews 12:2 with the Team. Then Josiah shared a devotional around the following verses: 1 Peter 4:10, Romams 10:13-14, Mark 15:1, Matthew 9:20-28 and 1 Samuel 12:24-28. These helped provide us the opportunity to think and reflect on the importance of sharing the Gospel with God's people before heading out for the day. We went to the Kigali Genocide Memorial and learned about the history of this tragic event in 1994 that lasted 100 days and claimed the lives of over 1 million Rwandans. We learned that in addition to this horrific event that claimed many lives, it continues to have an impact on many of the people who still relive the trauma it has caused. Rwandans are very resilient people who continue to move forward showing love and forgiveness. To wrap up our day we ended with a team debrief to discuss our day. We're excited to see how God will use us throughout the day tomorrow and the rest of our trip.
