Siam: Kenneth Became Ill at Chong


Margaret recalls how Kenneth was ill in Chong. He had one of those violent episodes of stomach problems that started while he was in seminary. Margaret had to rush him to the hospital that was 12 miles away. The road was barely wide enough for one vehicle and they were following a big truck carrying some of their things. Suddently the wheels of the truck simply crumpled and it went off the road.
