The violent storms we are experiencing are beyond any I have witnessed in the 20 odd years I have been in Rwanda.Tropical storms are expected, but wind and rain, mixed with lightning, rumbling claps of thunder, and hailstones big enough to dent your car are a little much. The storms are truly testing my new residence and the hilly land around the Learning Center.

Rwanda’s flag is no longer surrounded by mud

The first visitors in Urukundo’s new residence were Margie and Bruce Krogh from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.  They are former residents of Kigali, Rwanda, and friends to Urukundo Village and Learning Center.

Arriving on a Saturday evening, Bruce was the logical speaker for the Sunday morning service.  Divine (one of my university graduates) acted as a translator in both English and Kinyarwanda.

On Monday, the Kroghs visited the school. Margie's passion is the music program at Urukundo Learning Center. She has long been a monthly contributor supporting music for kids.

A few photos from the Krogh's visit, below.

Mama and Baby Project
Very happy young mothers. New clothes for their babies. What precious gifts! The clothes and the babies. You are there. Thank you.

For the first time, I gave a group a tour inside my house using Zoom to We Are Women Helping Others (WAWHO), in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA. Thank you for giving me a chance to prove you are never too old to learn new tricks!


Living on a mountain is always exciting. Rwanda is all mountains. There is no choice.
Watching a mountain erode in the form of a mudslide behind the primary school. Retaining walls are a must. We cleaned up the mud, but it will take some time to build the retaining wall to prevent further damage. We know each storm will make it worse. The ground is so soft.
