Errands with a Tall Man

Today we went "public," posting flyers announcing the job opening of laboratory tech for the new clinic and hospital.  I was accompanied to town by one of the pastors from Harvesters, who is from the Dinka tribe.  As you may know, they are the tallest people group in the world (Manut Bol, NBA star, was also Dinka).  The pastor, self-described as "short," stands a little over 6 feet tall.

He was very helpful, as he could post the flyers well above the other postings on the wall.  Later, we went to meet a Sudanese doctor (from another tribe) whom I had never met.  The pastor said "he's a short man."  I should have learned to consider my source, as a large (nearly six feet as well) African man walked up and introduced himself as the doctor I was to meet!  I can only guess how he would describe those who are truly "height-challenged"...  Our meeting went very well, and I was privileged to have his company as I became acquainted with another doc seeking to better the health of the South Sudanese people.

We are trusting Jesus to bring the right personnel to staff His House of Hope - Bet Eman.  Please pray for protection as we take another tangible step in establishing this hospital-- it has been our experience that as we advance on behalf of the kingdom of God, the enemy reacts.
