Some of you will have met my friend Chris Page. He preached here at Christ Church about two years ago and it was a joy to meet up with him in Rwanda in November 2007. About eight years ago Chris firmly believed that God was asking him to go and live in Rwanda to work amongst orphans and to start-up businesses, employing orphans over the age of 17. Chris was not an entrepreneur. He had no business skills or training whatsoever. He could not speak the national language Kinyarwanda. Humanly speaking it looked a very unlikely prospect! However, the first business he started (Cards from Africa) now employs more than 80 orphans. They earn a good salary and are able to feed and educate younger brothers and sisters and the business runs using Gospel priorities and principles. Chris was a young man who could easily have said no, but when the Lord said go, Chris said oh, and off he went! “I belong to the Lord, body and soul. Let it happen as you say”. Isaiah said, ’Here I am. Send me’ (Isaiah 6:8).
