Yesterday we visited the children’s ward at the National Referral Hospital, Honiara. Father Ellison Koke, an Anglican, serves there as the only full-time hospital chaplain in the Solomon Islands. He led us around to see some very ill children, who have travelled by boat and truck, sometimes for days, to get to this small and simple ward. Many suffer from meningitis, malaria, or bronchitis. Others are waiting for surgery.

The Primate visited with each family and blessed each child in the ward. He has asked for you to remember them all by name in your prayers:
