A Hard Pill to Swallow
A hard pill to swallow indeed. Tomorrow Tyler and I take the last dose of our malaria medicine of the short term once a week regimen that we do when we go to Haiti. 6 pills and we have malaria prevented for us when we travel there. Let’s see, our children there and the people of Haiti live in abject poverty, with little or no medical care. They live in an open air environment with insects biting them all the time. They have little nourishment, little water, very little clean water and the list goes on and on. The good news-they do have the love and hope of Christ, and a hope that their physical situation can be better… that it will get better. For us, for now, we gallingly take the pill. We also plan and hope with our girls and with the people of Haiti. I am planning to return in late October to Haiti to take vitamins, worm medicine, and other supplies to the orphanage. Stay tuned and pray with us as we humbly desire to make a difference for these dear ones.
