News from Ruhengeri

We have had a busy few weeks. We were delighted to have Caleb’s parents here; this trip was part of the celebration of his dad’s 80th birthday. It was a joy to have them with us and Sara, Hannah and Caleb Jr came home too! We were especially glad that they could see their son’s hydroelectric project.

Team Heart, a cardiology group out of Boston (and other places) visited our hospital for the first time and screened patients for life saving heart surgery. They are a dedicated team and it was fun for me to see one of the cardiologists who was one of my medical school professors. Here are some pictures from their day at Ruhengeri Hospital:

We also had the Sunday School room painted-we are looking forward to putting up a poster from Church of the Resurrection. If anyone else has a poster they’d like to donate, let us know and we’ll see about getting it here!Here is Before and After: (it’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint will do)

Well, I usually like to end with a Bible verse, but today I have something slightly different:

  1. Thanks, Louise. I always enjoy reading your updates, praying, and forwarding them to Joel. I was discussing my shortcoming of doing blogs the other day and Joel said, ‘You should talk to Aunt Louise. She does them well, and often. :)” Hope to be inspired by you. We did update our blogs recently. You can see them at and Blessings on you.


  2. How wonderful to have the ability and determination to be traveling around the world at age 80. And to think that at 66 I was waffling on whether or not to renew the passport! Now I’m inspired. Wonderful pictures. Go Cocks and Tigers!
