The Child is Dead

This is difficult to read but another reminder why ABWE is working hard at raising up funds and people for a new hospital in the northern part of Togo.  I’m part of a team that is raising funds for this project and I’m going there in May with a group of men from GLBC to help move the building project along.

“Man knows not what a day may bring forth.”  If it’s not in the Bible, the truth expressed certainly is.  Esther and I were awakened by the phone at 2:30 on Monday morning.  I flicked on the light, looking at my watch as I stumbled to the dresser where the cell phone continued playing the little ditty they put on those things.  I was greeted with the words, “L’enfant est mort!” The child is dead!  Still trying to wake up, I replied rather groggily, “Quoi?” What?
