I Owe You
On Tuesday [March 29] I went with Bishop Mbanda and a few other pastors to a small village in the surrounding mountains. I can’t remember the name of the village because I couldn’t pronounce it, but we visited one location of the 300 Shyira Diocese churches as well as one of the 52 Shyira schools. They had a confirmation ceremony for about 30 new Christians, and as a lifelong member of a Baptist church that was a new experience for me. Additionally, the entire ceremony was in the native language, Kinyarwanda, which means that I understood nothing about what was happening at any point in the 4-5 hours that we were there. However, I was a guest of honor and was allowed to sit down front in the shade since the ceremony was outside. (Imana Ishimwe = Praise be to God)
