Power, or Lack Of It

I shared a couple of weeks ago a story about doing a delivery, and then the repair of a torn birth canal, partly in the dark. Dr. Becky Wallace shared in her blog a story of a cesarean section done mostly by head lights about the same time.

Engage is the new on-line mission magazine of the Church of the Nazarene. They picked up on the story of our power needs, and, borrowing material from both Becky's and my blogs, along with other material, wrote a great story. They even used my blurry photo of the nurse preparing an injection by the light of her cell phones built-in flashlight.

I didn't go into much detail about the reasons for the electrical troubles, but they summarized it nicely in that article. If you are able to help with this important need, go to Nazarene Compassionate Minstries' web site, where you can give on-line.

The photo is of the Kane river, which used to be, and we hope will again be the source of our electricity. God, of course, is the source of our power!
