Alison Fenning shares a story from her recent trip to Rwanda…
A few times in my life I have had the opportunity to speak on the radio, mainly in the UK.
However the experience I had in Rwanda was like nothing before!
To start with it was a 4.30am start I was not convinced anyone would be up and listening. then the challenge of it being a live recording which is slightly unhelpful when the electricity goes out – you can no longer see your notes.
The Pastor wanted me to preach the gospel – a very unique challenge as you have no audience to connect with, they remain unseen. I spoke on the power of Jesus to reconcile. After the show we were making our way to speak at a church service when the Pastor’s phone began to ring. At this point he handed it me, saying people are now calling having listened to the show. Many had more questions and some rang to say they had prayed the prayer I said over the radio. They wanted to say thank you!
I remember how moved I was as I sat in the church, reflecting on the events of that day so far. We never know what God will use to draw people to himself plus the fact that Heather and I loved going, we had a lot of fun doing it.
