From Death to Life
“She is not dead yet,” replied one of the villagers, “but will die soon.”
A 15-year-old girl was pregnant and trying to deliver, but the baby had turned. There was no healthcare at the time in the dense jungles of Kalimantan, Indonesia, on the island of Borneo. The people in her village had no hope that this girl, named Lihut, would live.
So they turned to the local witchdoctor.
He and a few other men decided to jump up and down on the girl’s belly, thinking this would help. Of course, it only caused further damage.
On a nearby grass airstrip, a small airplane—a Cessna 185—touched down and John Hook, a pilot with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF), stepped out. Read what happened next here.
