Psalm 34:18 - From our last few days in Lukulu...

He’s too big to be carried.  Yet - there he was – securely tied in a discordantly colorful sitenge on a male relative’s back.  You know it’s bad when a man is carrying an older child on his back.  The child looked to be about 10 years old with his head held at an odd angle and his eyes rolled back into his head.  He is on the way to the hospital and honestly, he may not come back.  It looks like it could be cerebral malaria. Sickness and death; pain and loss are every day occurrences here but it never gets easier.  My tears fall as I see him loaded into our truck so Jeff can take him and his father to the hospital.  So heartbreaking… All I can do is pray… yet the Lord sees and the Lord knows.

The LORD is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.  Psalm 34:18
