Well, we are reunited and it feels so good! (I can hear that song in the background...) Claude and friends made it back safely from Burundi late last night. Everyone was brimming with great stories from their extensive travel throughout the Burundian countryside as well as their visit to the capital city of Bujumbura. God has created some wonderful new friendships and partnerships that will be a blessing for our Burundian brothers and sisters. More about that later... But it is wonderful to have all our western friends back on campus and reconnecting. Now we are each journal writing, allowing for personal reflection, later we will be in small groups to share with one another, and this afternoon the large group will process together. It is good to struggle with our experiences together, to celebrate new friendships and dream with one another about what God can do here in Burundi and Rwanda. How amazing that we get to be a part of His restorative plan for the world!
So we are running a bit today... but I wanted to let you know we are well and we are all together!
