We often feel the hand of God in our life. This calling would be impossible without it. That truth was reaffirmed last night.
Keith put his phone on the nightstand next to the bed. Although it was on “vibrate”, it will usually wake me up. Last night it didn’t. It is always heart wrenching when you awake and see 32 calls from the same number during the night. With dread you call and find out what emergency happened while you were sleeping. Last night the calls were from Revolution. Revolution is in Los Reyes and some distance away. Sometimes it takes 2 hours to drive there, totally depending on traffic.
Elder C. is allergic to penicillin. He knows that. When he went to the clinic for antibiotics, they were informed of that. However his reaction came from a different strain of medicine last night. As soon as he started to experience difficulty breathing, the four Elders called us with no reply. However, they didn’t stop there, prayers were offered. Elder C. was alert enough to take Benadryl and call for an ambulance. It probably saved his life.
How thankful we are this morning for a loving Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ, who could help when we couldn’t.
