You can see pictures of all this on the Happy New Years! post.Ryabega is the village, where Alex is pastor of the church, and has a burden to help the people there.
We were wanting to see the places that YWAM Rwanda have here in Rwanda, there are 3. So we traveled to one of the places last week. As we were traveling there in the taxi car, along with Method (he & his wife are directors here at the YWAM base) and Remco (another fellow from Holland), we were noticing that it was looking very familiar! Yep, we were going to the same place. We were exactly in the same area as Alex's village. In fact we could even see the village we were at the last weekend in Dec. across the valley on the next hill.

Being that we were in that specific area, by two different men, and not even knowing that the two pieces of land were that close, we really feel that God is telling us something! We are looking into seeing what God wants us to do when we come back after our trip to Canada, and it is really looking like we will be working in the Mutare area of Rwanda. (click here and it should open a Google map showing you how to get from Kigali to Nyagatare passing through Ryabega!)
Pray with us as we listen to what God is wanting us to do in this area, as we believe He is calling us to work there. The need is great! We pray that we will fit in, and be a help, and show God's love to the people we will work with.
