Flying home

Day 14

Really the only way to describe the team at the moment is exhausted. Our first flight left at 1am Rwandan time and second left nairobi at 7:10am Rwandan time. I think every member of the team has managed a few hours sleep, but I don't think anyone has had a good sleep.

For me, the journey - thus far - has been a great chance to reflect on the trip as a whole. I'll post sone final reflects tomorrow, after i've had a good nights sleep, but I think one of the key things I've noticed in the last two weeks was the joy of the rwandans. they do not spend their days asking "why me God?" or "why did this happen to me?" or even "do you even love me lord?". Instead they spend their time praising God, loving him for his grace, his provision, his salvation and his unfailing love. Without God, Rwanda would be dead. It is by the grace of God that Rwanda has survived and knows joy. Rwanda has known such sorrow, but instead of embracing it, they have left it at the cross, and instead embrace the joy of the Lord. Simply amazing!

The first group is now home. Please pray that all goes smoothly for the second group and that they would arrive home safely.

Thank you Comfort Rwanda team
