Over the past several months I have sent a few emails hoping to hear from him. This week I sent another one and the next day I received a reply from him. The email is below:

Hi Brother Romney,
Long time ago, 5 months passed and I miss you.
Just to tell you that you were my big family in America, I will always remember your family in my life.
In fact, I am in Rwanda but it is difficult for me to communicate. Now I am able to send message because I do have access to internet once a month.
I don't have job entitle now.
Now I have a big problem to put an end on my refugee application case in the USA. So I need your help, just to contact the Lawyer and ask her to send a letter to the Immigration requesting the end of my case.
This will help me to come back in The USA after 2 years. Without this letter, I cant get in USA again.
Also, I want to ask you to give my greetings to your wife Barbara, to the Bishop and the Ward.
I am very grateful to the Bishop.
Thank you so much for being my great family in Utah.
I was so pleased to hear from him. He has been on mind ever since he left. I feel that my prays have been answered and that he is OK. I am glad that he has found a job and because of that he now has access to the internet. I am looking forward to our communication and hope that it will continue. I have inquired about his family and also if he has been able to meet the Bishop in his area.
