Alex is 25 years old and has just been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. Faustin is one of my Rwandan children. News from Rwanda is always sketchy, but he is very ill in the hospital and is having a tumor removed. He is about 25 years old. Truly, hope for both of these young men lies with God's mercy.

It appears that Faustin is doing better. I'm still not sure whether he did, in fact, have some sort of malignant/benign tumor or a bad infection in his leg. Either way, it has been removed/cleaned out. The problem is that it is planting season and he has to keep the wound clean. No small feat when you work in the soil all day and have no access to clean water. No further word yet on Alex. He is undergoing chemo, and it isn't an easy one.

I had an email from Faustin yesterday. He used the last of his crop money for medication, but I was able to send him enough to purchase new seed. He has gone from utter despair to renewed hope. Thanks be to God! I pray that whatever it was has been fixed and he can continue to improve his life and the lives of his family members.

Continued prayers for these two men, and so happy you were able to help Faustin with his need for new seed. Glad too that he seems better and pray the illness is behind him forever. Thank you for the update.

I think it was an injury rather than an illness, but one can never be sure unless you are right there observing. He does, like most of the poor in Africa, suffer recurring bouts of malaria. As of now there is no real cure for that.

Thank you, Chris, for the update. May the Lord continue to heal Faustin's leg, and may his crop prosper and be a blessing to him and his family.

I had an update on Alex the other day. He is half way through his treatment and at this point is responding well. Please continue your prayers.
