Retreat Day 2

It has been a full day of games, singing, crafts and storytelling. The women and youth are bonding, feeling safe to share difficult stories. They closed the day with singing and an evening blessing. Instead of heading for bed, the women sat in circle and sang. What a rich way to end the day.

Youth Group

In Kigali, a youth group of 18 girls has formed. They have all been part of previous retreats and stay in touch via social media. They meet together as well. Another 8 from this retreat will have a youth group to move into.

Tomorrow will be the last day of the retreat with this group. As Kae Neufeld states, “It is rewarding to know that, as they say, they now have a family where they belong.”
