Genocide Memorial - Day 3

Our power went out around 10pm last night and stayed off until the early morning hours. Though inconvenient it gave us a much needed early night that allowed us to catch up on sleep!

We began the day by joining the Africa New Life staff for their morning devotions. It was a powerful time of worship and message. Something you can't help but notice while here is how in sync everyone is. The staff of ANLM are an extremely dedicated and kind group of people and its obvious to us that they're committed to the work they're doing here.

We had the chance to meet with John Africa who works directly with sponsored kids as they transition from high school to college. He shared a lot of information with us about the program and the challenges kids face as they transition and I am planning to include some of that in the video about this trip.

We spent the rest of the day at the Kigali Genocide Memorial and I'll include some of the team's reaction to that in the video as well. Due to time constraints this morning I'll need to cut this post shorter but we have home visits and our first sponsored kid party this afternoon so the post for day 4 should more than make up for it! :)
