Saturday November 2 and 3 2013 – Rwanda Trip Begins

We are also at the airport in Nairobi heading for Rwanda while the others are heading for Canada.  Thirteen of us along with some Lacombe Rotary members are heading to Rwanda to open the deaf school.

It was about 2 AM on Saturday by the time we checked into our beautiful hotel in Kigali.

It was very tiring as we had left the Mara in the morning on Friday.  In the morning Mike Gouchie and I went for a meeting with our partners.  We have our local partners as well as our Red Deer partners here. We met at the Genocide museum.

The team is from the CrossRoads church in Red Deer.
