Greetings from Rwanda! The April showers brought…May showers, but now some sunshine has been breaking through :).  April is a somber month here in Rwanda, as it is the time of commemorating the genocide that started on April 7, 1994.  Caleb and I participated in the special memorial service that Ruhengeri Hospital sponsored to remember the hospital workers who died during that sad time in recent Rwandan history. The memorial service at the hospital made the genocide losses more concrete, especially since we were called to Rwanda to help replace the many physicians who died or fled the country during that time.

I continue to work at the hospital, managing the Family Medicine training program at Ruhengeri Hospital, as well as providing primary care there for both inpatients and clinic patients, and Internal Medicine consultations.  We have several residents who will finish up in the fall of 2014, but due to funding cuts, most of the other faculty are leaving. I am also taking my last online public health course towards a Global Health Certificate, through UNC. The course is on evaluation and monitoring, which is pertinent for the work we do, though ultimately the evaluation we are aiming for is His, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

We are thankful that Caleb’s hydro project is working well and is providing power to the national grid.  With all the recent heavy rain, we were worried that the canal might be damaged by a landslide, but our prayers have been answered!,We had a special day of celebration with our Bible Study, and others, as they came out after church to see the hydro site.  We had a fun time of singing , dancing, and praising God!
Prayer requests at this time include:
  • For our 3 oldest children, at Rift Valley Academy-for safety and good health (as I write this Sara is in the infirmary).  They also had some landslides recently and several roads were down.
  • For Moses-we are hoping to bring him to the US with us this summer. Please pray that his passport, visa, and US naturalization papers will all come through.
  • For Caleb, for wisdom, as he plans for upcoming rural electrification projects, which will be such a great help to those communities.
  • For the many students we support.  As these children grow up, we pray that they will become mature and strong Christians.
  • For the Family Medicine residents-that their final year and a half will be fruitful in many ways, and that as well trained Christian physicians with servant hearts, they will become leaders in the medical community
  • For the continued prayer and financial support for our family, and thanksgiving for the many of you who support us in so many ways. 
Blessings, Caleb and Louise
 Psalm 34: 10  The young lions suffer want and hunger;  but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
 
Giving helps us support children like Nsanzimana, pictured here. Nsanzimana, whom we have known for years, is mentally handicapped and will probably never finish elementary school.  He came and asked us for a bike, to have a job transporting people.  We thought it was a good idea and here he is-thilled to have a source of employment!
