|In Doha, Qatar Airport|
Our last few weeks in Rwanda were great. We had a cookie-contest/Christmas party, which ended with lots of embarresing photos and sickened stomachs from an overload of sugar, but it was fun. We also had final presentations and exams which kept us busy. Then in our last few days in Kigali, we had debrief sessions with the Go-Ed director, Michael. These sessions were extremely helpful in preparing us for transitioning back to North America. Even after being home for a couple weeks, I still find myself processing through what I learned in Rwanda, and how I've found that my perspective on life has changed. I hope to never stop processing the difficult things, and then in turn, spending my energy encouraging social justice, loving others through Christ's love, and continuing to educate myself on world issues that will never be easy to solve. I want to encourage you to do the same. I have never been more passionate about the fact that every person deserves the same amount of opportunity, respect and love. Unfortunately in our world, this will probably never happen until Jesus returns and brings justice, but it is something we can all strive for.
If you've been reading through these posts, I am thankful for you. Thank you for taking the time to hear what I have to say, and my thoughts and emotions while being in Rwanda. I have been encouraged by your support and prayers, it has ment so much to me.
