Sorry to be so quiet. Been in Africa, visiting Cameroon, the Central African Republic and tomorrow Liberia.

I can’t say thank you enough for your support of the Gallo Clinic (my birthday wish). I will blog more when I return. Having business the clinic for the first time, I understand the work even more clearly. I am moved beyond words at this point.

FYI, the second picture shows the cart the pastors use to transport the sick from the many remote villages to the Gallo clinic.

17% of all children die before age 5. Dr. Christa (German) told us she tests every person who come through the clinic for malaria. She records an 80% infection rate.
