Website Relaunch

Our Response is thrilled to present the relaunching of our website. We are so excited to have an updated tool to keep you informed about what is happening. The refreshed site will also include news events and stories from those involved with Our Response. There are so many people passionate about compassion in East Central Minnesota, and we are excited to be able to highlight those stories and inspire others to live a life of impact. We also have an updated presence on Facebook and look forward to multiple ways to continue building momentum.

The website, and the blog in particular, will continue to be updated regularly, both of which we believe will be powerful tools to deepen the sense of community that is developing through Our Response. On the blog you will learn of people throughout East Central Minnesota who are offering their skills to help our friends in Rwanda; you will hear perspectives from child sponsors and others involved; you will be able to follow the trip team as it heads for Rwanda; and you will have the opportunity to engage in the discussion that begins with each blog post.

I would like to take this opportunity introduce you to one of my favorite people, Janie Pearson.  Janie is a board member of Our Response, travelled to Rwanda in 2011, and is passionate about the people of Kivuruga and the impact we are having in our community. Janie will be helping manage the new website and the blog, where she will be a primary contributor.

Thank you for engaging in this journey of transformation occurring in both the people of Rwanda and in the people of East Central Minnesota. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead.
