It’s been a busy few weeks. Caleb had visitors from the US who are involved with the hydro project, including a talented engineer. As you can see from this photo, charting out the territory for a new hydroproject is not always easy!

I heard Mark Twain quoted recently: “I can live for two months on a good compliment. “ I felt that way recently when I was at Kinigi Health Center, where I see patients every other Monday. Kinigi is up near the volcanoes and though they are not very far from Ruhengeri for the older patients, Ruhengeri might as well be Paris. This older woman thanked me for taking such good care of the old people in Kinigi; it was too hard for them to get to Ruhengeri. Her compliment made my day.

We started preparing for Thanksgiving weeks ago, when we bought a live turkey-the only way to have turkey in Ruhengeri! Fortunately we didn’t get too attached (he was much too mean) and he made a nice dinner. We celebrated Thanksgiving 2 days late, when the kids were home from RVA. The afternoon started with a piñata that the kids made with their friend Jimmy in Art class at school-they had a blast.

We are certainly thankful for so many things-for serving here in Rwanda, for having our whole family together, for the good work we have to do here, for our good health, and for the inestimable love of Jesus Christ.

Thankful to have Caleb Jr, Hannah and Sara home!
