Serge... just happy to see some great work being done!


So yesterday Serge and I were at the Expo... a two week long county fair / flea market / plowing match event which brings together Rwanda industry, associations, companies, co-operatives and also those from surrounding countries... wandering around to see what we could see that would be helpful in our house building.

As I was wandering through the booths, I came across the Rwanda Milk Marketing Board.

Mmmmmmmm... I had to smile. You can't take the dairy farmer girl out of me.

I bought some cheese from them!

I can see!!!

On Saturday, our current team was in the Kiziba Refugee Camp.
As they were walking one of the team members took a picture of an elderly woman. He then turned his camera so she could see the digital picture.

She couldn't see the picture as her eyesight was not good.

Al, the team member, took off his glasses and put them on the old lady thinking they might help her.

Next thing he knew, she was jumping up and down and hugging everyone around her giving thanks and praising God for her regained eyesight! She could see herself in the picture and see everything clearly around her.

Needless to say, Al went home without his glasses...
