It has been a busy month and we have much to report!
- We have accepted 5 new boys who are all orphans into HFL, bringing the total number of kids in our care to 15. Since being in the home, they have become part of the church choir and staff report they are “very happy to be living a different life.”
- As a result of the outreach program HFL recently began, 20 young men have stopped taking drugs and alcohol and have accepted Christ. Additionally, staff have started teaching reading, writing and English classes to the young men who come to the outreach each week.
- 6 of the eldest boys (pictured above) recently took a district level exam on reading, writing, math and biology and all the boys passed! We are so proud of their hard work.

- Please continue to join us in prayer. One boy has decided to leave HFL. The vast majority of children’s homes and orphanages report having similar problems with the children in their care. Pray that he decides to come back, that God protects him, and that he wouldn’t have power in convincing any of the other boys to join him in returning to the streets.
Also, Megan is leaving for a 4-8 month trip to Rwanda on November 21st and could use your prayers for wisdom, preparation and the Lord’s constant guidance.

We continue to move forward in our work knowing that God sustains the work He starts in each of us (Hebrews 12:2). Thank you for continued support to bring smiles, life and hope to the faces of countless boys in Rwanda.

The boys look so happy!!! Congrats to them; that's a wonderful achievement and a good example to all the other boys.
