Another Kigali Trip

We had visitors for the weekend!!! Our first overnight visitors!!! We were very excited to have them come and we had a relaxing time visiting (of course) and games, movie, and lots of laughs. Never got a very good picture, so the one below will have to do! Eating was also what we did lots of and this one is taken sitting around our new dining set!!! Daniel cooked a great meal! Thanks all for a great weekend.
Mirjam, David, Daniel, Peter & I.

They are expecting a baby and we hope they will be back for a visit after she is born!

Peter and I headed to Kigali, even though we had a great weekend, my physical condition was deteriorating. I needed to go see a specialist in Kigali. The 3 hour ride in was painful, and being that we got there around 6pm we slept, or rather tried to sleep that night.

We were able to get a ride to the King Faisal Hospital and were put through a very efficient system. They took blood for tests, and gave me a needle for pain, and drugs for the next 10 days till we go back to see the Specialist next week Wed. It looks like I've gotten worse since the last test. Normal is 0 - 20 and 10 days ago I was a 60, today I tested 76! So something will be done and I will be monitored closely as I take the medication need to treat Polymyagia Rheumatica!

Lots of bumps in the road, but that doesn't mean we will be going back to Canada. They have the treatment here too and that will help as we continue to do what God has called us to do!

We are praising God and look forward to continuing on with the children's ministry, the sewing school, and getting a preschool building built before the year is out!

Check out the different ministry items that we have post on the 'Ashes to Worship Ministry' Rwanda tab above for more details!

We are praising God for all He has done already and what He will do while we are here!

  1. Shirlene Scherle Henning: It's wonderful that medical care is provided. By the high counts you have, that is a very high level of inflamation, which I struggle with. plus some other issues. Praying you will be feeling so much better, real soon.(and you will be). (I don't think Florence could help you through this one!!) sorry. heehee!!
