We visited Rosamund Carr's pyrethrum flower plantation- a very interesting place of an American woman who lived in Rwanda most of her life( her book is "Land of a Thousand Hills- my life in Rwanda" ) . She was a very gracious woman whose life intersected with many interesting people including Dian Fossey( Gorillas in the Mist). After the Rwandan genocide she started an orphanage at age 82. We were honored to have lunch in the dining room at Mugongo, her home.

|We were late getting to UCC due to a police stop and an accident blocking the road so most of the|
Students had left. But this girl with Downs found us and we received many many hugs!

|This is an amazing man - instead of becoming bitter he has moved on to being independent and|
helping others. This is a picture he painted.
|We crossed the border close to Kisoro and stopped to see friends at Muhabura Shine School and enjoyed tea.|
Friday we had an incredible day. We traveled to Ankole College in Rubaare, about an hour away to visit a school started by Enock- a young man we have watched grow up in Uganda. He became involved with him many years ago at KTC. He was a brilliant engineering student who our son Lewis and our family became involved with. He suffered many hardships growing up and wanted to help other young people. This town had no secondary school before. There is now around 130 Students.

|We had several hours of dancing , singing, and speeches- a wonderful day!|

This has been our first week in Africa. We miss everyone but are looking
forward to seeing what God has for us here in Kabale and for you at home.
