The joy of the Lord. What does that mean? It's that deep sense of satisfaction and pleasure from doing a particular task that God have given you. It is so exhilarating to see how He uses your offering of time to accomplish His will. Today in class we had several enthusiastic discussions in which we were all actively engaged and learning from one another. Pure joy filled my being! I am praying right now for each person who reads this post to have the experience of the joy of the Lord!
One sees some unusual things along the way here. Yesterday I saw a man carrying 10 mattresses on his head. Today I saw a woman carrying a sewing machine on her head! Sorry no photos, my camera did not snap quick enough.
Off to see Tuyisenge tomorrow! He lives about 27 km north of Ruhengeri. That's 130 km from Kigali where I am staying. I am looking forward to seeing many of the thousands of hills for which Rwanda is famous.
Friends. What would life be like without them? Some of my closest friends I've not seen for several years but what is SO special is that when we do talk we can pick up the conversation as if we had just seen each other yesterday! I was able to talk with a few such Rwandan friends this week. Plans are being made to try to connect in person before I leave but even if the responsibilities of our lives prevent us from meeting this time, it was good to chat. Perhaps that is because we share life in the same Holy Spirit.
Dinner is calling me. I wonder what will be the menu tonight?
