Brett and Keli Shreck and their  children Kassidy, Natalie, Benjamin and Nicholas moved to Rwanda in Feb. 2010. Their two sons were adopted from Rwanda in 2007. Brett serves as Senior Minister at Christ's Church Rwanda, and Keli is over the children's program at CCR. Around 120 children (age 2-12) come on Sunday mornings with over half of those walking long distances to come without parents.
