Praises and Prayers

We have been back in Rwanda for 3 weeks now. It has been quite the whirlwind so far. As soon as we landed, we were busy helping new staff get settled into life in Rwanda. It is something that I love to do. We really do feel like this is our home and I love sharing that home with those starting the adventure.

I have several things to give praise for and some prayer requests as well.

First of all, some of you might remember me sharing a story about one of the little guys in the orphanage that I taught how to give a high five to. His name is Shayka. I just found out that he was adopted! He has a wonderful forever family and is living in the US. Praise God!

Emma is loving her new preschool and we are excited to be back with our students at KICS.
I am also praising God for safe travels, our supporters and rain.

Prayer Requests:
1. My dear friend, Jenn, was in a car accident on Tuesday. Her two children where in the car with her. She and her son suffered broken bones, scrapes and bruises. Her 19 year old daughter, Alix, has suffered serious injuries. She has undergone 4 surgeries to stop internal bleeding. The most serious of the injuries however is head trauma. The doctors have told her that she will have no right side brain function when she wakes up. Please pray for miraculous healing.

2. Several of my graduates are starting their first year of college in the US. Please be praying for Sophia at Wheaton, Diane at Cal Baptist, Nicole at Tyler in TX, and Christelle at Oklahoma Christian. Boris is heading to China to study engineering and Stephanie is in Belgium to study culinary arts. Please be praying for a smooth transition to new cultures, a great bond with roommates and an increased reliance on God.

3. One student, Doreen, has had to postpone her education in the US due to her mother becoming ill. Her mother is in a coma. They are unsure what is wrong with her and because of her critical condition they are unable to transport her out of the country for further treatment. Please pray for her to be healed.

4. Our helper Emmanuel's mom has malaria. Again, I ask that you pray for healing.

Praise God from Whom ALL Blessings flow!
