Our primary task in Rwanda was to teach English to the students at NUR. This was an incredible opportunity to meet students. We had many conversations with them, sharing stories, fears, hopes, it was incredible to be let into their world. Many of them shared their stories of 94, but to my amazement, they walk with hope! They look to the future of Rwanda, and feel that it is their responsibility to bring the future they so desperately look for. Please pray that these students would look to God for their strength and for wisdom in leading Rwanda.
This is my class pictured below.This is the school where we taught. Notice how green everything is? Rwanda is beautiful!
This is one of our students. He and his fiancee came to visit Taylor and I on the weekend. They are getting married in November, please pray for them as they will need God to miraculously provide in order to do this.
This is Patrick, my teaching partner. He was so fun to work with and a HUGE blessing for our team.
These are my students. Look how close they are sitting to the front, they were so eager to learn.
This is our team. More about them to come in a later post...
At the end of the week we had to grade all of the tests we had administered, there was an essay for each student, quite a task! This is Andrew and Tiffany, they were teaching partners.
This is Pat and I with our class.
One day one our way to NUR we encountered terrential rains! We literally had to hide for several minutes until it passed. It was so fun.
And that's all for post 2 for now!
