Merry Christmas from the King Family

Many Greetings from Rwanda from our whole family! Caleb continues to work hard on his hydropower projects, and also a new project: making fiberglass pipes, to carry water for his projects; it’s not just a “pipe dream”! He is building and discipling his team, pictured below left, with an award they were given by the Rwandan Government, for Innovation.  He is also happy to have Phil Ebben, a young engineer from the US, working with him as well.

I (Louise) am still working at Ruhengeri Hospital, and this year started working  one day a week in Kigali, as well, teaching Rwandan Internal Medicine residents. It’s a privilege to be part of the Human Resources for Health program, while being able to use Spiritual Resources, without which we couldn’t have served here in Rwanda 12 years! 

The Children

The children are doing well, and we all enjoyed going to the US this past summer. Sara spent the summer in Spain, with a Youth Hostel Mission. We, Lydia and Moses were able to visit her. She is a sophomore at Wheaton College. Hannah is a senior at Rift Valley Academy (RVA) in Kijabe, Kenya, and is busy applying to colleges, and is working hard on her courses. She is also busy with Model UN and being a great big sister for her sibs! Caleb Jr is a sophomore at RVA, plays on the tennis team, plays the tuba and is involved with Model UN. He is now taller than his mother-no small feat/feet! Lydia is in 7th grade at RVA, and is the president of her class, so she gets to take advantage of her event-planning skills! Moses  is in 5th grade, being homeschooled by Anne Tyler Edgar(from SC), who is taking a gap year before college. She’s doing a great job. Any takers for next year? He continues to love biking and is now a proud member of the Boy Scout troop in Musanze. 
Ministry for Vulnerable Children
This year we started a local NGO, called Heal Rwanda, to serve as an umbrella for many of our other outreach ministries, including supporting 75+ orphans and other  vulnerable children. Thanks to so many of you who make this possible! We have a weekly Bible study in our home with some of these children, and are also quite involved with our local church, where Caleb and I both teach Sunday School, preach on occasion, and enjoy the Sunday morning Bible study. We recently branched out in our younger kids’ class and  used scissors, for the first time, a new experience for many of the children. Even more importantly,  many of them are really understanding the love of Christ for the first time!
We were also thankful that we could send some of the children we support to a Christian outreach camp, run by fellow missionaries. They had a lot of fun, in addition to receiving good teaching.
 
This Christmas arrives at a time of much turmoil with a refugee crisis in Europe, bombings, and threats of worsening unrest in nearby Burundi. Yet even so we rejoice in the celebration of the birth of the Prince of Peace, Saviour of the World, Emmanuel, God with us-yesterday, today and forever.
We pray for blessings for you and your loved ones for 2016!

Caleb and Louise
