And then the rains came

Yesterday afternoon at about 4pm we were visited by a rainstorm. There were still several hundred people waiting for medical care so we brought as many as we could inside the building. Many others rode out the storm under the eves of the building. Several inches of rain fell in less than an hour and a lighting display added to the entertainment. Even though things were bad, not a single patient left. They were desperate to be treated and to obtain free medication from our pharmacy. There is always such an atmosphere of love in our medical camps. Everyone can feel it and it creates an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. From time to time I hear of medical camps where crowds get rowdy when they cannot get medication or when there are too many patients to treat in a single day. We are so thankful that we have never experienced that.

We begin day two at the Widows center today and we are prepared for a large crowd because word of our presence has spread through the countryside.

On a personal note, I skipped dinner and went to bed at 7:30 pm last night. Woke up this morning at 6:15am thankful that the Lord “gives his beloved sleep”.

It’s time for bed back in Seattle, but if would remember us in your prayers we would greatly appreciate it.

Thankful for God’s wisdom, his protection, his mercy and for allowing us to share in the great adventure of His service.
