Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

Praise Him all creatures here below.

Our flight over here was good, we had some delays in Toronto and Montreal, so when we arrived in Brussels we were too late to catch our next and final flight to Kigali.

Therefore we stayed over night in Brussels!

It was my Birthday that day, June 16, and so at the luncheon meal at the hotel, the others - a group of seven adults, who also missed the flight, sang Happy Birthday to me!

The 'others' that missed their flight were also going on to Kigali to do a short missions trip. It was nice to spend a bit of time with other fellow believers! And we also met 2 separate couples, with separate events, that came over here to do safari type adventures. It was good to visit with them. Hope everyone is going to have a great end to their journeys!

Then the next day we were given the opportunity to upgraded to First Class and have a very luxurious flight on to Kigali. (Thanks Air Canada for the unexpected Birthday gift - hotel room for one night and 3 meals and upgraded seat to First Class! I would never have thought that you would have been so generous!!!) It was very nice actually, to have a break from the airplane seats and have a bed for one night!

We were warmly welcomed by the YWAM Rwanda staff here, some that night, some the next day! What a blessing to be here! Today we went for a bit of a tour, and went to "town" in the afternoon to do somethings and pick up some stuff we will be needing over here. We did pick up a phone so that has eased our minds and maybe Family back home in Canada and USA!

On another note, we ask you to pray for us, that God would keep us healthy and that we would draw near to Him in every way as we learn and serve Him here in Rwanda.
