It happens that in life, when we have seen the love ones dying too soon, it takes time to overcome the pain. It has happened to almost everybody and only time heals.
It was indeed difficult for me to accept that my 7 year old son Jephté also called Jeff, died from malaria while waiting for medical assistance in a queue at the public hospital. Jeff looked better in the morning, I thought he would have a quick test and he would be given some anti malaria tablets and he will be ok, so the mother should take him to the hospital, I will run to my office to my supervisor and asked for a permission and meet them at the hospital. When I met the company supervisor he told me to program " those 2 computers" and I would be free to go to the hospital for my son. After just an hour an half, there was a messenger who was at the gate of the company, he called the reception who put him through to my phone extension, the sad message is Jeff my son passed away. I just stood up and told my supervisor, my son just passed away. Within 5 minutes sweat as if I was beaten by the rains! I rushed to the cab station and hired the first taxi as " express" unbelievable! Jeff passed way and there was no room in the mortuary to keep his body there and his body was taken home to my bungalow waiting for burial! Jeff was buried in my back yard. It was hard to have loose my dad David a former school teacher, and six months later I lost my son. My pain and sorrow got worse the next day after from 4: am remembering both my dad and my son " leaving me here" when I shed tears for two hours at Jeff's tomb. Later on I prayed, and told God when you help me, I will help many of those who are in as the same situation as Jeff and David my dad. A month later I was hired as paid volunteer to work in East Timor, I began to save some money, later on I bought the land. God bless me again to have a better contract and took me to Lebanon then to Israel through official training to visit Jesus empty tomb, and birth place Bethlehem. I saved my pay and built a medical center called Kingston-diaspora that can be seen on www.kingstoncaraid.com and facebook.kingston.diaspora . God has been faithful., with 4 ambulances and 1 mobile clinic, our team was able to rescue, and provide medical assistance in emergency before during and after the devastating armed conflict in Central African Republic. The only obstacle was when the majority of muslim rebels ceased our ambulances and vandalized then their adversary called " anti balaka looted the building. At the moment one ambulance is completely writte off, others have clutch and their tires removed. God is faithful, we need your prayers from around the world and also to help us fix and put our ambulances and mobile clinic back on the roads. We have had assistance of Vitamin angels to give vitamins A and deworming tables to malnourished children, however we are unable to provide ambulance assistance in emergency cases and children, elderly people death rates has increased. Thank you for your prayers and support. we look forward to hear from you
God bless all those who will read this message.
