Rebecca headed to the U.S. for treatment Back to blog »

RebeccaWe are excited to announce that sweet Rebecca from Bugesera, Rwanda will be traveling to Austin, Texas this weekend to receive treatment at Dell Children’s Medical Center. She is a ten year old sponsored child who attends our school in Bugesera. Rebecca lives with her immediate and extended family just south of Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, where they are subsistence farmers. Rebecca is pictured here with her family — she stands in the center in a purple dress.

Please pray for Rebecca as she travels to the U.S. and begins her treatment journey. Rebecca has what appears to be “club feet” and a possible neuroskeletal condition effecting her arms, shoulders, hands, legs and feet. She will be evaluated by doctors next week in Austin, Texas and we will know more information at that time concerning her treatment plan.

Please pray with us for a safe journey from Rwanda to Austin for Rebecca, Anna and baby Daniel. Anna, Pastor Fred’s wife, and their baby son will accompany Rebecca to the US and stay with her for two weeks with her host family to help with her transition to the US. Please also pray for Rebecca’s heart and peace and comfort.

We also would love for you to partner with us in praying for the wonderful host family who have opened their home and hearts to tenderly care for Rebecca during this appointed time, and the doctors and healthcare staff at Dell Children’s Medical Center for wisdom and guidance. We are forever grateful and blessed by the love and generosity of DCMC and the Davis Family for hosting and loving on precious Rebecca during this important and remarkable time.
