It’s seems like just another normal day and I don’t think too much about it--until I do stop to think about it. “This is absurd!” I realize. “I’m laying across a writhing demon possessed 14 year old, with my head propped on a pillow, falling asleep peacefully, like nothing’s out of the ordinary!”

We flew her immediately to the hospital and she was diagnosed with severe pneumonia, severe dehydration, and severe malnutrition (no [...]

We have had a relaxing time here at AIIAS with my parents. We have had a full house with various missionaries and [...]
