Lightning

It rains a lot here and when it rains, it pours.  Along with the rains is often a exciting display of thunder and lightning.  This afternoon it was raining hard, pounding on the tin roof but we didn’t hear it – we’re so used to it.  Suddenly there was a flash outside and then immediately after the biggest boom I’ve ever heard in my life.  Lightning had struck our friends’ tree about 100 yards away.  Their boys were playing in the back yard, under cover.  The husband felt the electricity go through his computer.  They put a note on the intranet board here at the center thanking God that their children were safe.
