It’s here! It’s here! The Rwanda issue of World Next Door Magazine is finally live. And wow. It’s a good one.

This month our new year-long fellows Jeff and Brooke Hartman take us from the streets of Kigali to the shores of Lake Kivu to the foot of a volcano. It’s a powerful issue about hope and healing in the wake of Rwanda’s horrific genocide.

The issue is so awesome, in fact, I don’t even know what elements to highlight. How about this? I’ll just list a few of my favorites:

  • A personal history of Rwanda – Brooke finally makes sense of the history that led to the genocide, all in a conversational tone. And Tara’s infographic timeline is amazing!
  • The Coffee Process – Gorgeous photos showing how our morning cup of Joe goes from tree to cherry to bean.
  • New Section Headings  – This is sort of simple and mundane, but the photos for our new section headings (Embark, Explore, Ignite, Launch) are super cool.
  • Powerful Features – The feature articles in this issue are truly powerful. Jeff and Brooke each wrote one, and they are amazingly compelling and hope-filled. Take some time to read these and you won’t be sorry!
  • Photos, photos, photos! – There are some phenomenal shots in this issue. Seriously. There is a lot of eye candy here.

But the coolest thing about the issue is that our newest partner ministry, African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries (ALARM) is highlighted in such a compelling way. We have so many new ways for our readers to get involved. It’s exciting!

So. Awesome photos. Compelling stories. Fantastic design. Think it might be worth checking out?
