Laura came to our village without warning. My internet was down since Friday. I had seen the storm on a website and knew it was going to pass by to the north of us. I didn't see the forecasts over the weekend. Sunday morning in church, it rained. In a church with a great big tin roof, rain kind of stops the ability to communicate. After church, I was feeling a bit ill...headache.
I walked home, got a little wet, and felt worse. I recognized this kind of headache to be malaria. I had chloroquine on hand, so I started taking it on Sunday. Sunday evening was rough...rain, wind, headache. Monday got better, and Tuesday was gloriously sunny, and I was at full strength. The storm kind of paralleled my illness : Came suddenly, was strong for a day, was better the next day, and then was gone.
I am thankful to God for His constant healing. His record with me is really impressive.
I hope Louisiana and Texas are ready for the storm.
