Rwanda

"Rwanda is a verdant and beautiful country, often referred to as, “the Land of a Thousand Hills” and, “the Switzerland of Africa”. Rwanda is about the size of Vermont, but hosts a population of about ten million; its population density is the highest of any country in Africa and currently has one of the world’s highest birth rates. Unfortunately, UNICEF estimates that there are nearly one million orphans and vulnerable children; children are primarily orphaned due to poverty."


And I'm going!!!

This summer, June 27-July 8, I have an amazing opportunity to visit several orphanages in Rwanda, Africa.  Through a lot of prayer,  Andrew and I both feel strongly that the Lord is leading me to be a part of this trip. This mission trip is organized by a Christian non-profit ministry called Visiting Orphans.  Our team will use music and worship to build relationships with the children at the orphanages. We will also bring food and other items that the children need such as shoes and school supplies. The main purpose of the trip is to spend time with these children who are in desperate need of love and attention.
If you would like to be a part of this team through your prayers, encouragement, and financial support, it would be a great blessing to me and the children I will minister to in the orphanages.  
Prayer Requests: Please pray that I will be able to communicate God’s love to the children we meet. Please pray for safety for me and my team throughout our travels and that we will remain healthy.
Financial Support: The cost for me to go on this trip is $3,900. This includes my flights, transportation, lodging, meals, insurance, translators, and the food and supplies that we will purchase and bring to the orphanages. If you are able to support me, donations can be made online at www.visitingorphans.org under the DONATE link. Under Fund Category-choose Rwanda June/July 2014 Leader: Wilson and where it asks for you to preference your donation to a specific team member, type Jenny Brochu. 
"Pure religion in the sight of God is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress..."
James 1:27

Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and support.
