Katie and Shauna

Shauna's older sister Katie arrived in Rwanda last week to spend a gap
year teaching English. She is adapting very well to this very
different culture and we want to wish Katie much joy and success
during her stay here. Katie has been a great help in running our VBS
this week.

David being assisted by Antoine and Ernest in leading a game

David Humphries first came to spend a summer vacation with us in
Rwanda 4 years ago when he was 16. This year is his third visit to us
and it has been wonderful to see this young man grow in confidence as
he shares his gifts with young people. He is so enthuastic and a joy
to have around. He will return to the UK in September to continue his
Theology studies at Queens University Cambridge.

Happy moment for Shauna at the VBS

Shauna has been with us for 5 weeks and has had many wonderful
experiences in Rwanda. She did some translation work and research for
International Justice Mission who she has been fundraising for in her
school in Canada for a number of years. She also spent some time with
'Lawyers of Hope' and visited a number of orphanages and a refugee
camp. She has been a blessing and we will miss her when she goes home
on Saturday.

Games at the Muyange VBS

Today was the last day of a 4 day Vacation Bible School at the Muyange
Vineyard. What a great week! We had on average 65 children every day
and 6 guys from our youth group helped lead the week's activities.
Katie, Shauna, David, Joel and Brendan brought messages each day and
helped to lead the games. The theme for the week was the heart. Monday
was the Soft Heart, Tuesday the Forgiving Heart, Wednesday the
Believing Heart and today the Happy Heart. Everyone gave themselves
wholeheartedly to the skits and much fun was had by all. This morning
in the final session there were about 75 kids and 5 came forward and
made decisions to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior. Thanks to everyone
who prayed for our VBS this week, God is so good.
