Baptismal Counseling

Early this morning, I awoke in a new hotel room. Somehow the air conditioning in my room had run all night. So, the room was very chilly! I later learned that Mr. Meeker's experience was very different. His air conditioning went out during the night, and he suffered through it. We headed down to breakfast at about 6:30 AM, but alas the breakfast buffet does not open here until 7:00 a.m. That was when we were supposed to leave. So, I decided to ask at the front desk if ...

... 8217;s bakery, when I say pastries I just mean plain bread in a different shape with icing on it, I have given up on all things baked here). The drive to Nyungwe takes about 4 hours going through some pretty nice scenery as well as one of the Congolese refugee camps.

There are two start points for all walks in Nyungwe and we got to the first one at about 1.30 and had some lunch. Two of my friends went to do the canopy walk which looks like a lot of fun but also ...

Last Tuesday was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip so far! Fiji was fun, West Coast Trail was awesome and Karen's Cottage very cool. But seeing Gorillas in the wild is absolutely amazing! We are still now, days later, pinching ourselves over how incredible it was.



The setting was Kahuzi Biega National Park, located about an hours’ drive (40km) from Bukavu. We set out around 7am with a friend Katherine, who is here for 2 months conducting ...

Getting in Touch with Our Spiritual Side

It's in places like Bukavu where the opportunity to sit in a 3 hour long Church service can be a highlight. Church services in the Congo are a bit like a U2 concert, lots of good singing, music, dancing with some preaching on the side. So on Sunday morning after a nice 7:30am sleep in we headed off to Church a small village around one hours drive from Bukavu. The main reason for going so far was like always due to some local connection that leads to an invitation. ...
