A Visitor's Perspective

Nastasia (a Med/Peds resident from the states), Erik Scharrer,
Dr. Harvey, Sarah and Elliott Tenpenny
While our family is busy traveling, you may be wondering what is going on around the hospital.  A recent visitor posted some thoughts on her time there...
It's 4 o'clock in the morning and -14 degrees Fahrenheit outside.  Erik and I are wide awake.  Erik decides to make us some eggs for breakfast while I sit in the dimly lit dining room, wrapped up in a blanket at the kitchen table.  I slowly, intently, scroll through the pictures from our last two weeks in the Congo.  As the eggs sizzle in the pan, we recall memories from our trip.  It is 9:00 a.m. in Congo right now and we think about the hospital.  They have already had morning chapel, morning report, and the doctors are probably on rounds.  Even though we have been home three days, our body is still on Congo time...
Read the rest of “Hôpital Evangélique ‘Le Pionnier’”.

 You can see the latest hospital news on the Tenpenny's blog Reigning in Life.

We are looking forward to our return and being able to give updates on the hospital in person.
