Came back

I have not posted anything. I was too busy to update this site, Robina and I have been in contact with each other via phone. Robina is planning to have a retreat, and she reported that there are 18 students want to go for the retreat. She is proposing it. I guess it may needed to build team spirtit. But I am thinking, can they build team spirit by volunteering. For example, when our people go to Africa, our students save money by working odd jobs for the entire year. When they go to Africa, they work hard to make a difference.

I am wondering loud that how volunteering will work in Rwanda culture. I remember when I was in college, we used to go to villiages and taught students and took care of children while adults worked during the day. We wanted to make some difference. I am just wondering if the picnic is the right thing to do. I guess we can just try once this time. I would love to see students volunteer to go to Batwa villiage and play with children, and relieve overworked mothers for a few hours by taking care of children.
