Women and Children and Even a Transient

His House of Hope is a hospital in Yei, South Sudan.  What makes it so special is that it is located at an orphanage called Harvesters.  Another thing so special about it that is first rate for African standards.  They have two doctors and two nurses that serve here as missionaries and a support staff of regional people who have some training and are getting more.  I will be writing a lot about this place of hope and the people who make it work in my third book.  The first time I held a little baby in my arms that would have died if this hospital wasn't here, I was a fan.  It was a very emotional experience holding those babies and I will never forget it.  But I have something else to be thankful to this hospital for.  A couple days ago I started feeling real crummy and last night I was up all night with a fever and chills.  It seems that Africa has given me a nice case of Malaria as a going away present. But because of Lillie, Linda, Innocence, Jay, Kathrine and Dr. Poole I will be good go when I get on that plane next Saturday.  If this would have happen to me in the bush of Terekeka, I would have a pretty serious problem.  The picture is of the first thing people see when they walk up to the hospital.


  1. So sorry to hear that! Im glad you were close to a hospital and they were able to care for you.. The scripture on the hospital is wonderful to see..

  2. Oh no, sorry to hear of your Malaria, Dave, praying for your return to good health soon.
