On Tuesday, we were cleaning up the church building - usually do it on Monday, but we had a Play Day on Monday this week! We got a call that one of our members - a teenager who come to Seminary more than any other students - was taken to the hospital from school in Highgate - about 50 Klm away. We drove there and found her in a hallway - no beds available - getting an IV drip. She had an aunt visit from another island who had heard about a cholera alert - so she put bleach in the water bottle in the fridge - apparently too much bleach! It made Jody-Ann sick. Jody's mother was with her so we didn't plan to stay long. Jody did want a blessing - so Elder Smith used his portable consecrated oil and did both the annointing and blessing - it was at the end of a hallway and a little bit private...or so we thought. After we said our goodbye's we walked outside and a young lady came up to us. "May I have a prayer also?" she asked. I asked her what for? "For deliverance" - she said. "Deliverance from what? I asked.
"From stress" - was her answer. So Elder Smith said a nice prayer for her, in the courtyard of the hospital. I love it when total strangers can feel and sense the power of the Priesthood and desire it in their lives. Neat experience - glad Jody wasn't held overnight - we met them from the bus they took back to Ochie and helped them get two prescriptions at the drug store. We really enjoy being shepherds to the flock!
