MEET ANNAH | The #IFRwanda2017 team has just returned to the States after visiting women who have been accepted into @africanewlife's 2018 vocational sewing program. They saw where the women lived, heard their stories and their dreams, and prayed with them.
.
Annah Kamaliza is one of those women.
.
She is 17 years old and is the sixth of twelve children. Because her parents couldn’t afford the fees for school, she was only able to complete up to the 8th grade. Annah’s dream is to become a designer for a variety of models, and she wants to learn many different fashions to do so. She wants to open a clothing store of her own design to display and sell her varied items.
.
You can help transform Annah’s life for the glory of God and the good of others by providing a partial or complete scholarship to Africa New Life’s 2018 vocational sewing class. A full scholarship of $1,800 or $150/month covers one year of tuition, materials and equipment, discipleship, and daycare (if needed) for one woman who has demonstrated extraordinarily high need. We invite you to prayerfully consider joining together with your family or small group to contribute to the scholarship fund.

First leg home!!!!! Rwanda to Brussels then on to the ol' USA! So blessed to have participated in this amazing journey. I am speechless. I will see you again very soon, Rwanda. 🇷🇼🇺🇸#ifrwanda2017

Unforgettable. Our time in Rwanda 🇷🇼 topped by an unforgettable moment when Lauren decided to get baptized yesterday. Surrounded by Rwandans, her testimony was translated so the children and villagers could share in the story of God's great work in her life. Can't imagine a better way to mark the end of our time of ministry here. @ifgathering @africanewlife #ifrwanda2017 #changedliveschangedworld #womensadvocacy #ezerwarrior

Coming home is full of mixed feelings. It is good to be back to normal life but also missing Rwanda, the wonderful people we met and being together with these ladies. I slept 13 hours the first night that I was home and the weekend has been a bit hazy, felt a little out of it and tried to ease back into life slowly. Grace for myself and others is a good re-entry rule we discussed. Still trying to process all that I experienced. For me there is always a bit of a trip hangover when you are use to doing life 24-7 with people, seeing and experiencing the same things you are. What a gift that is! (Taken on our last day-Missing 4 team members in this picture) #ifrwanda2017 #womanforwoman 🇷🇼

Over the moon excited to finally meet some of the team! About to leave for Rwanda! 🇷🇼💜 #ifrwanda2017 #grateful

Take me back. #IFRwanda2017

Today we welcome home @jessicabpagel from her mission to Rwanda. We're so grateful for Jessica, and all others who are/have been in the mission field this summer. #ifrwanda2017

Our visit with Verena (beautiful girl in orange) was such a sweet time. Her smile and sparkling eyes light up the whole room and her thankful heart is so evident. In spite of her circumstances - current job and living situation, family struggles - Verena is full of joy.
Verena repeatedly conveyed to us her desire to be somebody and hopes that the sewing program at @africanewlife will help her accomplish that goal.
While I believe that our identity is not tied to our occupation, I also love to see people strive to be all that they were designed to be and reach their fullest God-given potential. Verena has so much heart and drive, I believe she will work hard to excel in the vocational program.
If you would like to learn more about Verena and are interested in sponsoring her, please read more here -->> http://www.africanewlife.org/nlfc2018/sew00125/

Shout out to these fantastic ladies who were our on-the-ground trip leaders last week. They kept us moving and on schedule and that itself is a huge accomplishment with 22 women, a lot like herding cats. 🤣They trained us, guided us, challenged us and took such good care of us. Alice also interpreted for us and even sang for us multiple times with her amazing voice. #ifrwanda2017 #ezerwarrior @africanewlife 📷: @tannaleedonalson

Take me back. #IFRwanda2017

Caritas told me she would be walking an hour to get to the program at @africanewlife next year. As I shook my head in amazement she responded, "It's not too bad, others walk farther." Never have I seen so much grace and strength as I saw in these women.
Praying to have half as much of those same attributes back in my American reality this week.

Proudly sporting my beautiful Rwandan skirt today at church! I'm deeply missing Rwanda and all my girls there! But Vanessa!!! It FILLED my heart today to get to hug your neck and worship next to you! 😘😘#madeinrwanda #hopecity #africanewlife #ifrwanda2017

Our team keeps dwindling. Love these women and missing them all already! #ifrwanda2017 #ezerwarrior #womensadvocacy #changedliveschangedworld

Headed home. Yeah for fun roommates! Loved time w/ @aokaki @_amyrodgers_ & team leader @morgandunnjones 😍😍😍#ifrwanda2017 @africanewlife @ifgathering

God knit our hearts together. We came from different parts of the country, with different stories, each bringing different gifts, living different life stages and different life circumstances. And God used EVERY aspect of our differences to meet each situation we encountered.
We lived out the truth of how we are better TOGETHER. We rode buses and walked deep into villages with no running water or electricity to meet with women who will be entering the 2018 sewing program.
I never heard a single one complain about the dust, heat, squatty potties. No bickering or cliques, we leave Rwanda bonded tightly as FAMILY.
So grateful for each and every woman who participated in #ifrwanda2017. And grateful for all who prayed and gave in order for each of them to be here.
Love, admire and respect these ezer-warrior women. @ifgathering @africanewlife #changedliveschangedworld #womensadvocacy #ezerwarrior #ifrwanda2017
