Home is where your heart is

It was great to see our friends and family.
It was nice to eat yummie foods and live in luxury. To drive in a place where people keep the rules and respect each other. To enjoy cleanliness and the consistency of water and electricity.
Though people seemed a bit pale, it was wonderful to see those who have our heart and to visit places we once poured our heart into and used to call home.

Here I am again, the last drops of water available to us were used to flush the toilet that started to stink from a day's use without flushing. I wanted to quickly print a document but didn't succeed as electricity was off.
I though I would pour a quick glass of milk for my daughter but forgot that I had to pasteurize it first. I wanted to make a phone call only to find the network to be down and oh, even with network it would not have worked as my phone minutes were finished and the guys in the little shop in our valley didn't have any minutes for sale.
Crazy enough, I call this place my home.

After all; Home is where your heart is.
And my heart is in Rwanda.

You're an amazing inspiration, my friend! Your passion will never run out, God's love will never go away from you, and the blessings last for thousands of years! Love you!

You are right, you and your family belong in Rwanda now! Remember it is difficult for us to give you, but God does request that we give our best. We were so blessed to see you again, to visit, crack bad jokes, hug and visit face to face, Praise God for all that! And now my friend it is time for you to get back to work, and for us to get back on our knees, for there is much God has for Rwanda!
You are amazing, and God is good!
Thanks for blogging-we contently wonder what is happening with you, God's call and your precious family!
Love and prayers, Michelle Corbin

Good to know where you are, and why we haven't heard from you. We are thankful that you are where your heart is, and that God has a big idea for you there.

You are in our hearts and in our prayers. - Becky
