Shema is an eight-year-old Rwandan goat herd from a child-led family. He has many adventures, including a goat eating his only T-shirt, a frightening visit to a medicine man and a dangerously close brush with a spitting black cobra! Through them all, little by little, Shema learns about 'Mr God' and discovers that although he is an orphan, he has a Father in heaven who cares for him. An inspiring, victorious, heart-warming story, with lovely background to life in rural Rwanda.
