Summer Update

We've had a summer of celebrations this summer. Hannah graduated from Rift Valley Academy and will be starting at Wheaton this summer; I turned 50; my parents came to visit and Sara spent the summer with us. We also went to several weddings of Rwandan friends, some of whom we had known for a long time, supporting them since they were primary school students. The women in the photo above are bringing traditional baskets filled with food at one of the weddings. 
We celebrated my 50th in Gisenyi, on Lake Kivu! 
Hannah's graduation from Rift Valley Academy was another celebration! 
"To everything there is a season" -Ecclesiastes 3: 1. With Hannah moving on to Wheaton College this fall, Sara studying abroad, Caleb Jr, Moses and Lydia all rapidly growing, we are feeling like we are in a new season. Another change for us will be that my position teaching residents and medical students will be moved from Musanze to Kigali.I will be teaching even more students and residents, but it's hard to be leaving my co-workers and patients here. Not to mention that some of Caleb's work will still be in Musanze. Though with his new projects there is usually no shortage of work to do in Kigali. A benefit of being in Kigali will be that Moses can go to school there. We are praying to find the best school for him. Hopefully we will know soon where he will be going! 
At the same time that we have some new horizons ahead, God has graciously brought old friends back in our path again. With my parents visiting, we were able to have some nice reunions and remember good friends we have made here. On the left, Lydia is with our friend Beata, with whom she worked closely at Kibogora Hospital. On the right, Bill and Lydia are with Pastor Emmanuel who served with us in Shyira for many years, and is now our Pastor again at the Anglican Cathedral in Musanze. 
I thought I'd end the newsletter with a couple of  selfies. Caleb and I are not the best selfie-takers but we and our Rwandan friends enjoy them! On the left, I am with Felix, a patient of mine who recovered well from a serious infection. On the right, Caleb and I are at Sonrise School on visiting day with children of our friend and neighbor. 
Prayer requests: 
  • Please pray for Hannah as she starts college.
  • Pray for Sara as she studies in France for next semester. 
  • Pray for Caleb Jr and Lydia as they navigate RVA without Hannah!
  • Pray for Moses as he starts a new school. 
  • Pray for me (Louise) as I move to a new hospital.
  • Pray for Caleb's projects which are close to starting, but still need to have some details finalized. 
  • Pray for the new members of his team, Ryno from South Africa and Daniel from Alabama; pray also for the faithful workers on the ground here-Anicet, Innocent, and Emmanuel, to name a few. 
  • Pray for Rwanda-for continued peace and true discipleship in the churches.
