Earthquake--Part 2: Love
We wish to express our gratitude to all of our friends, loved ones, supporters,
and all who prayed for us and will continue to pray for us as we fight the fight!
The devastating situation here is still in progress.
Our staff members, some of whom have lost their homes, have worked tirelessly day and night
during this most difficult of times for our beloved Nepal.
By Monday morning, we had admitted 204 patients.
One of these patients was this precious grandmother seen here with two of her grandchildren.
She had leg injuries.
Her grandson told told their story:
"It was a regular Saturday. All of us in the family were outside doing this and that around or near the house as usual. Grandmother was inside. Suddenly the earth started shaking violently and we all looked at each other with realization in our eyes--it was an earthquake! Oh no! We tried to steady ourselves and mentally counted the family members. Grandmother had not come out of the house! The earth was shaking, things were falling, but I rushed back inside and found her fallen and unable to get up. Her legs were injured. I quickly carried her outside."
We asked him, "Were things falling around you as you went in?"
"Yes," he said.
"You were very brave."
He smiled and said, "I love her."
That says it all!
We are so glad we were able to help his beloved grandmother and we pray she will soon
be cooking again for her family and telling the little ones stories!
Please pray for all our patients, some of whom have no home to go home to.
