Sabbath Day

God rested on the 7th day and so did we.  The team enjoyed a bit of downtime at a swimming pool and a goat roast at an I-Team's staff member's house.  Enjoy the photos!

Dinner. An entire roasted goat!

  1. Who'd have thought teaching diving would be something you ever did in Rwanda? Looks like everyone is having a blast in the photos. Enjoy the last week. It'll be over sooner that you want I am guessing.

  2. OH! More tears of joy for me today! Thank you for sharing these photos. Isaac, what an amazing opportunity, to share your passion for diving with a child clear around the world. I'm so proud of you, and so happy for you.

    Now, tell us, how was the goat?! It looks delicious.

  3. Hope the goat tasted better than it looks. I'm sure it did, but that picture doesn't do it justice...

  4. I am so glad you had a bit of downtime to let loose and have fun! How did the goat taste? I can't say I have ever tasted goat. One week down, one week to go (not that I am counting down the days until we see you again:)

  5. I know Melanie didn't eat ant goat! Looking at it probably reminded her why she is a vegetarian.

    Glad everyone got to rest today. It looks like a very nice pool and that you had lots of fun.

    Only five days left...make the most of them. We are so proud of all of you!

  7. I'm glad you guys had so much fun today!! I've never had goat before but I hope to try it one day if you recommend it. Here's to another awesome week of growing, learning and making more connections!! I can't wait to hear about it! Hearing from you all is definitely a highlight of my day:)

  8. How awesome that we were both worshiping today. Different time, different location, different type of service, but we were both worshiping God! How awesome is that! Know that you had a whole church full of people praying for you.

    The swimming looks like fun, the goat not so much!

  11. I, like most parents, keep hitting "refresh" for Blog updates and would like more photo's too. You really hit the ground running and I hope the little break over the weekend energized you for this week. Let us know how it goes with the "Street Kids" as well as the water walk. You are all making positive impacts in the work you are doing.

  12. Ditto to what Tim said. I am curious as to how much a whole goat costs, and how is it roasted.....?

  13. I am so impressed with all of you as you as you meet each day with joy and amazement. I love reading your words. The one word that comes to my mind is MIRACLES! Everything you do and say and experience in Rwanda is a miracle. From playing basketball to talking with your hands to learning from the children to worshipping our God! May God continue to bless each one of you. I can't wait to hear what you have to say in person. Nancy Burch

  15. Wow, Isaac! Who would have thought years ago that you'd be in Rwanda teaching someone how to dive! What an absolute delight. So many amazing memories you are making, not only for yourselves, but also the many children who's lives are being touched by all of you! I continue to keep each and every one of you in my prayers! Enjoy these last couple of days! Sally Stauber
