Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, "When did we give you something to eat or drink? When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear or visit you while you were sick or in jail?"
The King will answer, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me." .......Matthew 25

Testing out the D'light S20

One of the high school students we are supporting, lives in a home without electricity. He does is homework at home with the aid of a small kerosene lamp. So I thought I would check out other sources of lighting he may be able to use. Without power, the only, and most obvious choice is the use of solar battery powered lamps. Online searches pointed out an apparent solution,the d'light S20. It puts out about 25 lumens, which seemed a bit dim to me. And they are not cheap. In any case, I bought a couple to test.

This is one lamp suspended about 2 feet off the table.
This is 2 lamps.

Verdict: One lamp is barely adequate. Two is off course much better.
Cost: US$18.95 for each lamp. Shipping not included.
