Roo improves as he overcomes this case of malaria

The photo above was taken last month of Roo, just after he got over the mumps! Now MALARIA!, poor little guy.

Roo definitely has malaria but other tests have not confirmed whether any other diseases are playing a part in his illness. I am thinking (HOPING) that he is dealing with only the malaria, which is bad enough for anyone, let alone a child his age.

He is improving and getting more energy. Please Keep Him In your Prayers. Thank you.

Also, if you run into a bargain of shoes for children on clearance, pick up a few and send them to our joint chapter in Summit Hill, Pennsylvania. In the Northern States, I hear that Walmart is marking their brand "crocs" down to a dollar; so wherever you are - look for some bargains. We want to fit as many kids as possible in shoes.

Please send shoes to:
