Healing Our Beautiful, Broken World From a Hospital in West Africa

By Sarah Thebarge

I just finished Sarah Thebarge’s second book. Her first book was “The Invisible Girls; A Memoir.” She is a breast cancer survivor at a very young age and a Christian. Her first book highlights her meeting a Somali family on MAX and her helping and getting to know them.
She trained as a physician assistant and the second book is about her 3 month work in Togo, South Africa. She is overwhelmed there with the pain and deaths. She looks to her faith in many ways and comes to the discovery that God is love and God loves all. She reads about Sisphus who is punished by carrying a rock up and down a hill forever. He “loves” the rock which makes the task possible rather than painful. This plays out in life. Sarah carries love in her eyes, many patients said, but she gets discouraged with the deaths and pain. She comes to realize that when we look at our challenges as ” love” we show as Jesus did that love is why we do things. As she returns home the song “All is Well” comes to her.

This was very relevant to me today.

ALL IS WELL.
