The astonishment of the participants is proof of the novelty of the experience of silence, personal mediation on the bible and sharing in groups: "I thought I was coming for a retreat, but it was just the opposite! Usually on a retreat we listen to talks morning and evening. This time it was for us to look for ourselves and to share with others ..." Another confided:"I didn’t know that young people could pray so seriously and deeply."
The presence of a dozen Rwandans gave a foretaste of the November meeting in their country, for which many had come to prepare. "I learned a lot about Rwanda. The friendship forged with the youth from that country encourages me even more to go to Kigali. Even though we don’t have a common language we were really like one family."
The next meetings led by the brothers in Nairobi will take place from 5 - 9 and 12 - 16 December. Information and registration: 0724 664 198
