A 'WILDERNESS' HEALING

A work trip a few years ago took me to a developing country. One day, journeying into the countryside, I was lovingly invited to my driver's humble home for dinner. His daughter cooked a local meal for me, which gave me a chance to sit down and get to know his family a little better. I'd been advised to be careful about the food I ate while traveling, but the meal set before me was prepared with so much love and I felt honored to be a guest. At that point, I wasn't thinking so much about the food, as about the fellowship I was sharing with these new friends.

That night, when I returned to the place where I'd been staying, I started to feel seriously ill. I had a fever, my stomach hurt, and I had to stay really close to the bathroom. It seemed clear that I was reacting to the food that had been served to me at dinner. The situation was scary, and I felt isolated, as if I were at the ends of the earth, all alone. It felt as if I needed immediate care. Even if I'd wanted to go to a hospital, it wasn't feasible—the closest one was a two day's drive away on bad roads.
