Title Power for Flour
Description chair over, he might reach the telephone cord. Oh, how painful was the stretch. Again he lapsed into unconsciousness and dreamed. He was standing at the pulpit. He was the bishop. As he looked over the congregation he felt a love and con- their loneliness. He cried out to them. "Tell me your' troubles. I will heal them. Let me help you." It was flour they needed. He could provide it. They were hungry and they vere fed. Returning to reality, Hans felt sick at Iiis stomach. The pain was unbearable. Gritting his teeth he forced his hand to extend toward the telephone. He touched the cord. Excited with his success, he pulled himself forward, dragging his useless legs. With all his strength he reached for the chair. Worming his arm to the chair seat, he managed to touch the crank on the phone. He released the receiver and with all his might turned the crank. It was ringing! Ringing! Was it real? Did he hear the operator? Catching his breath he cried, "Help. Get my son. To the mill. Oh, help." Exhausted, Hans slumped to the floor. He could rest. Help would come. His prayers were answered. He groaned in pain but felt consoled. As he relaxed he noticed the lengthening shadows and knew the day was nearly over and night would fall quickly. He heard a new sound. The creak of the stair. Someone was coming. All would he well. Help had arrived. Allan bent over his Dad. With loving tenderness he performed the tasks needed to get him home where he could be cared for and comforted. It was many days-weeks and months before Hans returned to the mill. Operations were limited; however, John and Allan performed the necessary tasks and carried the work load. 71
