The End Of The First Week

These children stopped to see if we would talk to them and get their picture taken. Just outside our gate on their way to school. I don't understand that as there is a holiday right now but some students get extra tutoring!

Today we had two missing from the first students signed up but there were 13 here today! we only have 9 machines! So far we have just been having morning classes, but today they had to decide whether they would come in the morning or in the afternoon. Morning will start at 8AM and go til noon. The afternoon will start at 1PM and go till 4:30PM.

Teddy is proud of her 'cement bag' cut out of a shirt, Just the beginnings of learning to make a pattern and sewing a garment. Very exciting!

With 13 students we finally had to bring in a bench for some to sit on!

After class we walk to the road where we catch a van, or bus, or a moto, or a friendly person who will take the 'muzungus' back to Nyatarare, Sometimes we get a free ride. These fellows talked with us as they were hauling water home from in the valley as we waited along the road.
After we got home, I found out that Alphonsine (our house helper) wants to start taking the sewing classes. So we have decided that she will start classes on Monday. She will come Mon. to Fri. to the house to clean in the morning and then travel out to Ryabega (she lives there too) to take the afternoon sewing class! I'm so excited!
This is more than I thought it would be!
Now if only we had the money to start building a preschool for the little ones to go to school. Please check out the other projects that we would love to start here in the Ashes to Worship Ministry (Rwanda) tab about.

Or click here and it will take you there.

If you can help in any little way I know that God will bless you for it. I could not be more happy and blessed that what we are doing now. I just can't wait to see what God will be doing in 6 months or 1 year from now!
