We would appreciate your prayers as malaria has hit our family again.  I (Amy) got it this time.  We would appreciate your prayers as we have our largest team here and Mark is also fighting a cold.  I have been on medicine since Tuesday evening so getting better but I am just ready to be over it.  The fever and aches continue.


As I have had time to reflect on all this, I realize that I am still so blessed.  As I lay in my comfortable bed in my house made of brick and concrete, I realize there are people in the next village over who live in mud huts and have no means of transport except to walk 30 minutes to an hour to our clinic to get the malaria medicine needed for them to get better.  I feel weak and tired but can’t imagine how they feel after walking that distance just to get medicine.  Unfortunately, the majority of the time we have been here, GSF clinic has been closed to the nearby villages due to the lack of medical personnel.  So if we are not open they have to go further and possibly not get the medicine for free.  As you pray for us, please pray for more medical personnel so we can reach out to the community around us.

I am praying for you, Amy, asking God to bring healing and strength soon. May God bless you even as you are in your sickbed trusting Him.
