Answers to Prayers

I showed one of our Rwandan friends our newsletter from Christmas, and she remarked that almost all of our prayer requests have been answered. I felt that I couldn’t keep quiet about that! Here are the prayer requests and how some of them have been answered, with requests for more prayer. We asked for prayer for:

  1. Our children, especially Sara and Caleb Jr, who are graduating from college and high school, respectively. Sara, in addition to getting engaged to Logan (!) was admitted to 2 medical schools, including UNC, her top choice! Caleb Jr is traveling as I write this, after having interviewed for a merit scholarship in the USA. Please continue to pray for him and his decisions/admissions.
  2. That Caleb’s project would start construction in 2018. Construction has started! Keep praying that it will continue.

3. For wisdom for me for resuming medical work. I have started working part time in an international clinic, with 2 other lovely women. It will be a service to the community and also a way to keep up my clinical skills. It’s a different skill set for me, outpatient medicine, so keep praying!

4. For our students we support so that we can minister to them spiritually as well as physically. We have no shortage of students and other vulnerable children and widows we support, about 133. We haven’t yet been able to have a meeting or retreat for all of them, but we give thanks that we were able to send so many off to school, giving them hope for a future. Keep praying for them, and for wisdom for us as to how best to help them.

    Hi, Caleb and Louise. I have recently discovered your Blog and been reading it with great interest. What a fine looking family you have – good luck to them all. Am glad to see a photo of Moses after hearing the story, years ago, about your finding him and saving him! He’s a good- looking boy. Harriet and Kimball will be so happy if Sara decides to go to UNC for Med School. I keep up with them and will call them later, and get your mailing address. Another time, I’ll give you news of the Cart family. I do keep you in my prayers and wish you good luck with your good medical missionary work. Cheers and love to you all, Liz Cart
