I wanted to update on a few past posts......

Claudine is doing well in Boston. She is the 12 year old orphan from Imbabazi Orphanage in Gisenyi, Rwanda who was diagnosed with bone cancer so late that she lost her leg to amputation. Partners in Health and the Clinton Foundation made a way for her to be in Boston, have surgery to remove more cancer and begin chemo. She is now in her second week of chemo that will last until January. Very generous people have taken her in but we are still looking for a volunteer that can stay with her full time and be her full time guardian.

Rebecca, Cari, Heath and another friend, Josiah, have been at the Imbabazi Orphanage with Roz for one week now and have four to go. They are being amazed at the love over 100 Rwandan children are giving them. I spoke with Roz Saturday who was on her way, reluctantly, to a gorilla fundraising dinner that President Kagame would also be attending. She has kept Rebecca and Cari in her home for a few nights and is delighted at the work they are all doing. My cousin, Terri Taylor and a few others were also there last week singing with the children, repairing needed items around the orphanage and just loving on them. They're doing well and having a great experience.

I have some exciting news from the Source in Jinja, Uganda I'll share next time too, once I figure out how to post pictures on this thing.
