we made it to Rwanda!

just a quick update, after 36+ hours of travel we are in Rwanda!
{it’s a a long story but thankful we made it safely!}
Alison, Rachel & I are sitting on the stairs of the apartment style hotel in Kigali and I feel like it’s freshman dorms all over again.  on our laptops, talking to everyone that comes by.
we just finished meeting with our team (I’m on worship/dance/bible stories) and let me just say.
they heard us 200 yards away jamming on our guitars & saxaphone.
“children of god” really got me.
tears streamed down my face already.
we have an amazing team!!!!  
the worship team + a few others are going to the Best family tomorrow and from what I heard it’s a full out dance party!  I am excited……
ok sorry…backtrack! 
I was greeted in Rwanda by my friend Norbert (Jessica’s attorney from their adoption who is also helping Jenn!)
You know when you show up somewhere & you are hoping to see someone you know…well that was me today & I can’t believe Norbert came to the airport to SEE ME!  ah!  loved giving him big hugs & introducing him to my friends.
then I got to meet JANE!
our guide & the other piece to the Jenn/Norbert/Alain puzzle.
internet is too slow & I’m too tired to put pictures up but just wanted to give a quick update.
and ask yall for PRAYER!
my teammates: Alison, Lacey & Wendy are all feeling sick from the travel. please pray for their health.
pray for our time tomorrow with the best family
that they will see the love of jesus through us
that we can worship with them freely
oh, and pray for my heart.  it’s broken again already.
on the plane I couldn’t stop thinking about Eyob.
and the boys on the dump eating the sugar packets
and his dream of being a pilot
praying that I form relationships with the kids in Rwanda too!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends
