We are enjoying being back in Rwanda-now for almost 2 months-where did the time go? I am currently on a lunch break, from work at the hospital, where I am teaching Family Medicine residents and working on the internal medicine service, where the cases range from post trau
Caleb is out at the hydro site, which is producing power! I have told several people that I feel like we’ve had a baby-and we were pregnant a VERY long time. The project is now producing enough power for our mid sized town of 60,000 people. Yeah!!! He was meeting with the people from the power company. so that it can be connected to the grid.
Moses and Lydia are at “homeschooling” along with 2 other American families. They both are enjoying it and learning a lot.
I am expecting 3 visitors this afternoon. One has just arrived-a friend of ours from Shyira, a schoolteacher with her son, who has just started school in Ruhengeri (he was among the top students in the country on his national exams). He is sick and she wants me to check him out before she takes him back to Shyira. His parents, and we, are a bit cautious with him, as his big brother died when he was 8. I have cautioned the parents not to give him traditional medicines. Another lady who is coming is one of my former
patients; we built a house for her and her husband and their 5 children. The third visitor programmed is a young orphan girl who has just finished high school. She is wondering what to do now, and would like to study nursing. We are hoping to send her to a Christian nursing school in the south of Rwanda.
It’s starting to rain here-so I really appreciated this verse from Psalm 18, which I read this morning:
“You gave a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip. “
Even more so, I appreciated verse 28:
“ For it is you who light my lamp; the LORD my God lightens my darkness. “
Anyone who has been involved with missions knows that there are times of darkness-we are thankful for our God who lights our darkness. In our particular case, we are grateful for the completion of the hydropower project and pray that it will bring light to many, and that the light of the Hope of the World will shine forth in Rwanda.
