Short-Term Missions Experience Part 3

Short-Term Missions Experience Part 3

I committed to a month-long mission internship with the Bonilla family in Madrid this year, and to my surprise, the Lord provided an opportunity for the Bonillas to serve alongside Neely’s Creek Church in Rwanda, during the same timeframe. If the Lord had not called me to serve for what I thought would be a mission internship in Spain, I would not have had the opportunity to go with the Bonillas to Rwanda, where I met the most joyful, hospitable, relentless people.? 

Our team of 22 hosted a mid-morning VBS for nearly 360 children who attended Nyabihu Christian Academy, where we taught lessons about who God is. Benjamin Musuhukye is an International Ministry Associate (IMA) with WW and founder of Reach the Children of Rwanda International (RCRI) who started Nyabihu Christian Academy. 

Afternoons were focused on home visits to families. We greeted them, asked about immediate and long-term needs, and prayed for them (with the help of interpreters). With most, we left clothes and sometimes a food bag. Some do not have a sturdy roof over their heads, probably sleep on the floor beside family members, don’t have enough to eat, and their sparse clothing may be tattered, covered in dirt. But, one thing I learned—their joy is not lacking. Those who seem to have nothing display the joy of those who have everything – joy flowing from the love and peace of Jesus Christ. 

After a week of meeting the people of Nyabihu, one of my most heart-filling memories is worshipping with them on Sunday, as they danced, sang praises, and some accepted Jesus for the first time.?
