Christmas Holidays

I am home on leave between now and January 7th, so there will not be any more Rwanda postings for a month.

During the last year my blog has been visited by around 6000 people from Africa, Europe, North America, Australia; sa few of these are my family and friends locally, some are fellow volunteers; others are complete strangers.

Thank you to all the people who have written to me with comments or advice. The blog has been fun to maintain and I am so pleased that so many of you have found it interesting.

I know for a fact that it has helped some of you make the plunge and become volunteers yourselves; this alone has more than justified the time and effort taken to write it.

I wish all of you a peaceful and enjoyable Christmas, and hope you will follow me during my second year in Rwanda in 2009.

Well done Bruce. you deserve a good holiday. I enjoyed following your experiences, especially in Shyogwe and Giterama.

Maybe some day I'll get to meet you in Rwanda. Some of my friends will be visiting again in 2009 to see the completion of the water project in Zion Hill Giterama which they have been supporting. If you make contact with Rev John Wesley Kabango, or Bishop Jered Kalimba in Shyogwe I'm sure they will let you know when the visitors from Ireland are due to arrive.

You mention the large number of strangers that follow your blog. Remember "strangers are just friends you haven't met yet".

I might manage to get to in Shyogwe in 2009. In any event you must now qualify for the "honorary Rwandan" award.

Best wishes and continued success.
