Sunday in Nalerigu

I was up for a couple of hours last night to do a C-section on a lady having a difficult time with her 10th baby. Fortunately, everything went well and she had a healthy baby, although the baby did have a very pointed head.

After sleeping a couple more hours, I got up and went to make rounds before going to church. We attended First Baptist Church when we lived here and we usually go there when we are back. It was a packed house today because they were winding up the three day funeral celebration for Madam Esther Lariba, who died unexpectedly a few weeks before I came.

Esther was a good friend and a strong Christian witness. She was very active in the church and outspoken about her faith. Her husband has two other wives, so they were a big family and most of them were in church today along with many friends. She will be missed by all of us.

The service only lasted three hours with a one hour sermon on the Christian view of death by Rev. Isaac Wuni, who had been the pastor of First Baptist and is now principal of the Bible School in Tamale.
