In January 2015, I backpacked Rwanda solo for two weeks! It was probably one of the best things I've done in my life, following God's call upon my life. I met perfect strangers who turned out to share the same faith that I did and the same love for music. I lived with a family right on the Rwanda-Congo border at Lake Kivu. And best of all, I met my sponsor girl in the hills of Nyakizu, over-looking Burundi south of Rwanda! Because of the amazing connections that were made with young Rwandans like myself who were passionate about music and missions, I've returned for the second time seven months later in the same year, from October 2015 to January 2016, to establish those relationships and see what God had in store. The journey has been nothing short of exhilarating! If you have any questions or ideas about backpacking Rwanda, visiting your Compassion child, or music projects please shoot me a message.

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.
