I have seen with my own eyes how little is needed for some people to live, be grateful and give thanks to God. It goes to show how faith and sacrifice can be actively practiced as opposed to solely learning theological theory without practice.
I have been touched by the people’s unassuming dutifulness, commitment and obedience despite the fact that a large majority of them are young adults and children.
The first time the children grasped a paint brush they uncovered a wondrous universe before us, filled with the life and color of how they view the world: luscious plants, exotic animals, pious angels, people of color and many scribbled words giving thanks to God.
Thanks to the Christ in Africa organization, we were able to host 2-3 day camps in Rwanda for the very first time. The youth that surround us represent the future of the church.
The work you do is awe inspiring, because while you know how to effectively lead and organize children’s camps, you can also relate to the locals and can truly understand their way of thinking.
The mission was especially valuable for the youth. As a result of the activities they participated in, their perspective shifted. They will reflect more carefully on the Holy Mother of God, Christ, the Saints and the Holy Mysteries of the church. We hope to see you again soon!
The children from our parish love the camps, because they get to do what they love! They are unassuming and kind. I hope more people continue to become this way.
