50 DAYS.
Before I leave for Rwanda.
It's only been 7 months since I got back. 

But amid all the impossibilities and uncertainties, one thing I learned most, is that God is my closest confidante, He is my Light, my Lover, and the one who teaches me to love beyond myself. He is the one who leads me day by day into the unknown fray. 

When I was 19 I asked God to take me to Rwanda before I was 25. I didn't know why, but somehow I knew I needed to go. I could never have imagined that He'd answer my prayer - and lead me there by 21. Now in less than a year, I also have a reason to return. Even though I went there in January knowing not a single soul (apart from a girl I support in the remote hills of Nyakizu). It is by the grace of God that I met the exact people I prayed to meet. Perfect strangers who turned out to be kindred souls, whose hearts are also set on following Jesus and serving others. Prince Shabani, Jean Luc Ntwali, Ben Rugo, Ntaganira Pascaline, and Rutayisire Privat you guys are God-sent and a blessing to me on this journey! 

It is a story unfolding. While I plan my path, I pause often to tell God - direct my footsteps, show me what You are already doing, let my passions collide with those who are also seeking You, and let my plans give way to Yours. 

Dear family and friends, please keep me in your prayers, that would mean so much!

We are only a fragile jars of clay through which God pours out His grace. We are precious in His eyes, if only we realized it, and walked by faith in His loving embrace.

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, I'm Janielle. I’m a muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a 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.
