Living and working in a Muslim country” by Rev. Barbara Huston

On Sept 26 2006 the Reverend Barbara Huston spoke of her experience of living in the predominantly Muslim country of Bangladesh and working in an orphanage there. She had gone with her two sons ages ten and eight (adopted from third world countries), and her husband, Dr. Peter Huston, who was to do medical research into the causes of the crippling of children in third world countries. Barbara’s anecdotes pertaining to daily life, conditions of poverty, inequality and so much need were eye openers and reminders to all of what is often taken for granted in Canada and how thankful Canadians should be for the opportunities here.
