Dear Friend of the Fatherless,
Southeast Asia, West Africa, Central America. I’ve had my fair share of frustrating battles with mosquitoes in each of them...and many places in between.
Having spent 25 years in Texas, I certainly encountered a few of the pests there also.
But there’s a significant difference: In most of the developing world the high-pitched buzz of tiny wings is a harbinger of death. I’m typically juiced up on anti-malarial medication and covered in high-deet repellent while visiting dangerous zones overseas. Meanwhile, the frail child in my arms is in a deep sweat and unresponsive to the world.
Malaria kills a child every thirty seconds!
In Africa alone, three thousand children will die today!
Tomorrow (Friday, April 25th) is WORLD MALARIA DAY. Could you please join millions of people in praying for the eradication of this heinous scourge that afflicts, terrorizes and kills our children and leaves so many of them as orphans?
World Orphans is actively engaged in addressing the issue. Could you please pray for us also as we provide mosquito nets, medication and other safeguards to church-based homes for children?
Together, through prayer and action, we can indeed eliminate the pain and suffering that flies at night.
