As the sound of children filled the bank of the lake it reminded me yet again of why I come to Rwanda year after year. Standing on the top of the hill I looked down over the sea of 180 students all wearing their fancy new red shirts. Approaching camp gahini all of these kids come from different homes with different problems and differents levels of poverty. But as they step through the gate and are handed their t-shirt we all seem to find each other on the same level. Now there is no rich or poor, white or black. We are all red now and we are all together now. Even as I write this I hear 35 kids all in unisen reciting a bible verse in English wtih Kerri leading them in it. This is part of their drama class which her and Chris are leading along with some Rwandan leaders.
Coming to Camp Gahini this year has been a whole experience. Last night I was telling Jordan that I am little scared of letting go of camp so quickly “ its like giving up our baby” I said to Jordan and today this first day of camp has let me see that our “baby” is in good hands. With over 30 willing Rwandan leaders it is very apparent that Camp Gahini is something that will be lead well and will carry on without any lame attempt that we can offer it. So its good to be back. We are already no longer the leaders of this camp but simply the helpers.
We covet your prayers as we hand over our baby to these great people and as we as a team find our place of ministry in this beautiful land. We will seeking to do ministry in some other areas while we are here. Including village kids clubs, street kid ministry, and showing the Jesus video. Well the lake is calm and the sun is hot so I better get going, thanks to all those watching, praying and cheering us on as we serve our Lord on this red soil! -Dan
