Part two of our Eight Days of Gratitude: Electricity

USA: Lights, electricity at the touch of a fingertip.

ST. THERESA HOSPITAL: Main-line electricity for “maybe” eight hours per day. Special Thanks for the people in Germany who donated a new generator for the hospital several years ago, allowing electricity “when urgently needed.”

SURROUNDING AREA: 95% of the rural homes do not have any electricity. Still, they are thankful for a hospital nearby that does have electricity, and the ability to use a generator for laboratory tests, x-rays, emergency surgery, etc.
