What we have been waiting for

Sat, 2010-03-27
Before we left Dunfermline we were aware that Tools With a Mission (TWAM) were arranging a container to be sent to Rwanda later in the year. TWAM do a superb job of refurbishing tools and sending them to where they are needed. They were also very kind in allowing us to piggy back on the container and send through some supplies of our own.

At last!!

It has been a long time coming, but at long last we have been reunited with our passports. Gavin’s was finally released by the immigration office yesterday. We now have our missionary visas to allow us to stay here long term.

Hurrying and scurrying

A few days ago I was wandering along the main street in Kigali on my way to purchase the cheapest eggs I know of in the city (60p a half dozen, take your own container). It was Friday afternoon and the place was pretty busy. Suddenly a mama with her basket of fruit, ran across my path, then another and another, oranges and lemons spilling out and rolling into the gutter.

The Lord will provide

Today is a writing day. It is mid-morning and I am sitting at my desk putting together the next Mission Rwanda newsletter. I haven’t had an opportunity to sit at my own desk for a few weeks now so it is good to be able to pull some thoughts together about what we are doing and where we are going.

Old friends come and go

Good news this week – Kirsty MacArthur is back with us again from Dunbar. She landed on Saturday after a long flight from Edinburgh and was still alive enough in the evening for some celebratory brochettes at our local hostelry. She will be working with the Living Church at Kibugo which is in the east of Rwanda near the Tanzanian border.
