A Sad Day

Last night (November 12), the hospital suffered a terrible blow when its pharmacist, a man loved and respected throughout the community, was shot and killed outside his home in Nalerigu. He died soon after arriving at the hospital. Violent crime of this sort is practically unheard of in Nalerigu, so the entire community is in shock. The hospital staff is especially distraught. Please keep the village in your prayers during this time of mourning.

    Thank you all for your prayers. All of the missionaries at the hospital went to visit the family home this afternoon to offer our condolences. People still feel unsettled, but the village as a whole is quite calm.
