My Congolese-Rwandan Family! :)

So immensely blessed to stay with a Congolese-Rwandan family while I'm in Gisenyi! Their home is literally the last house to the DRC border wall. The border officials camp right outside their house. I can see Congolese children playing in the streets less than a hundred metres away on the other side! Often their Congolese neighbors would cross over to fetch clean water. Luc and his family were so kind to me. It was so great to hear that his mom started a foundation called HOPE to support orphans and widows in Goma, DRC. They encouraged me so much in my faith! Everywhere I go I feel so loved by perfect strangers. And the incredible thing is it comes as no surprise even though we may speak different tongues - we serve the same God!

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

About the Author

Hello, my name is Janielle, a 23 year-old muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my unpredictably audacious quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, use music to inspire creative education, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze passion for Jesus' mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others. One Life | One Love | One Legacy.
