Jeremy left to head back to Kigali for a visit with the CBM. It was so great to have Jeremy visit us. He was very instrumental in us coming to Rwanda in 2010 with e3 Partners - exactly 3 years ago about May 20somethingish.
Monday, June 3rdWe went to the sewing school via "motos'.

Both classes were given eye glasses if they needed them, you will notice them in the above picture. They were brought from the 'Lost and Found" in Canada.
Wednesday, June 5thWe headed back to Kigali for some shopping and to experience bartering, lots of material and souvenirs were bought.
Thursday, June 6thWe went to the Genocide Memorial. It was very informative and I noticed a lot of changes from the time before when we had been there.
Then, around 4 pm, we had to take them to the airport for their flight back across the ocean. The time was so short, but was very good!
We really had a great time. Many memories for all that had the opportunity to meet Fraser & Leona. The students were blessed with gifts that they will cherish, and they learned a little about quilting. I love it that the students are able to learn more than sewing clothes and bags!
Friday, June 7th
|Alphonsine harvesting the beans she grew for us in our yard along with the 'maize'.|
|I sat down to help her, and she left and grilled me a cob of corn.|
Although today, Saturday, I am, as she went home to help her Mom harvest the beans for them. She will be back on Sunday evening for our 'traditional' (new tradition since we've been in Rwanda) Canadian egg salad sandwiches for dinner. She loves it!
Hope to post some pictures of the finished quilted pot pads next week!
I so love what God has for me to do here. And it's fun to share it with family and friends. God has been so good to us. The team that Leona & Fraser were with, gave us some goodies that they didn't need to take back to Canada or the USA. Thanks to all of you, and may God bless you in return!
