good news and bad news

Good News:
The Talua truck has arrived.  What great relief and a wonderful blessing.  No more trips to town like this one.

Bad News: 
No more surgery in Vila General Hospital due to lack of oxygen.  This makes me feel better about returning to Sydney for medical care, but doesn't stop me feeling guilty about it at the same time (but what a selfish response!).  Please keep those people in mind who are needing surgery and pray for them, particulaly those whose lives are at risk.  Pray also that it will not be long before oxygen is in ready supply again.  Pray for pastors in Vila who visit the Hospital that they may speak words of comfort and hope at such a time.

So glad the truck has arrived but very very sad about the hospital situation.
I expect this sort of thing happens not infrequently in many South Pacific nations.

Yes, I expect so. It happened last year up here in Santo, too.
