Who knew pineapples don't grow on trees?

Hi everyone, day three here in Rwanda but our first official day out and about in Kibungo!

We visited the parish of Kigarama, where we were so warmly welcomed by the pastor, his family and representatives from a few of the differnet projects which are being run throughout the area. We had a great opportunity to visit several of these projects, which included sewing, craftsmanship and pineapple plantations – with myself (William) even having the opportunity of harvesting a pineapple (from the ground, not trees as many of us on the team originally thought).

We were able to see how the projects have been benefitting the people and how all the glory is given to God! Following a beautiful lunch in the pastor’s house we then made our way back to where we are staying and enjoyed some time with the bishop before having a stroll around Kibungo and some supper! We are all having an early night tonight as we leave early in the morning to go and make some mud bricks, which should be very interesting!

So keep the prayers going we have already seen the power it has!
