We have seen many instances where prayer alone has made a difference—prayers for rain in a dry season followed by an unlikely storm to fill the hospital water tanks…prayers for a patient with no money and a difficult medical condition who was able to leave here healed and without a crippling debt…prayers for Les when he had a brain bleed and had to be helicoptered to the capital city for treatment and found himself to be the only conscious patient in the ICU overnight….the list could go on. We depend on prayers for our lives here, for our work, for the witness of the hospital and the church, and for our family living far from us.
