The Proof is in the Pictures....

You can look at his eyes and see he's not back to full power but resilient Roo is making much progress and tackling this malaria like the strong little man he is.

Roo seems a little uneasy with being lifted up into the air, but Dad (James), Mum (Kadijah) and sisters (Lucy & Ann Marie) are totally delighted that Roo is making such a comeback. Everyone at St. Laurence House was so worried during this latest illness.

All of us at Nazareth House Apostolate and especially James, and everyone from St. Laurence House, wish to express their sincere gratitude for your love, support and prayers. Thank you! It looked as though, through God's Grace, we've pulled each other through another serious situation in Freetown.

Keep it up, all of you, your prayers are needed everyday, all the time.
