We touched a little on my “overheating” challenge in the Sudanese SPLA division military compound in our last month’s newsletter. If you will bear with me, I’m pretty sure that I need to share, as Paul Harvey would say, “the rest of the story.”

“Someone contacted me about a neglected and abused boy this week. She said it was urgent,” Lendiwe began as she walked up and stood next to ITMI’s Kelly’s Smith. Kelly looked over at Lendiwe, the health worker he and Cherise employ to help them minister to the most desperate and forgotten Zulus.
