Malaria

Malaria. The scourge of sub-Saharan Africa, where one million die each year from it.

Our superintendent from Malawi recently visited Uganda, and succumbed to a fatal attack. Ken was in that same area in July. The Uganda Superintendent had to be treated for malaria during Ken’s visit.

Although the disease was finally eradicated in the United States in 1951, it is still rampant in may parts of the tropical world.

Ken last suffered from it in 1986, and although experts say that the parasite remains in the system, he has not had another attack since.

It makes us thankful for the good health God gives us.
