After a meeting with Bishop Emmanuel in Kibungo, who was suffering from malaria and came to the Diocesan office just to speak with us, we started the last leg of our journey as we travelled to Byumba. We broke the 4 1/2 hour journey with a very pleasant lunch in Kigali thanks to the local knowledge of Emmanuel who has driven us a fair few miles this trip.

Ian’s day was complete after managing to photograph a pair of Crowned Cranes on the drive to Kigal


A change of driver in Kigali and we headed to Byumba, a fairly good road until we hit roadworks but we arrived safely and were met by Pastor Thaddee with whom we have worked for many years.

A long and very productive meeting over dinner with Bishop Emmanuel of Byumba, Pastor Thaddee and Didacienne, the field assistant who oversees the sponsorship project and it was time to post the blog and head for bed.

A long day ahead tomorrow as we head to a parish a mere 2 1/2 hours drive away, we are assured the road is not too bad!!!!

Prayers for journey mercies please.

    We are continually praying for safety as you travel long distances, and that will continue on this, your last weekend. God be with and bless you all. Tony and Sandra Cook.
