When it rains it pours

Wow, seems we are being invaded with illnesses here at Nazareth House Apostolate. First Fr. Seraphim and James come down with malaria.Then my daughter, Aleica, who is pregnant due to deliver in February gets H1N1 (Swine Flu) which is not a good thing for a pregnant lady, now Roo began convulsions. Needless to say, we are in need of lots of prayers here.
Roo is in Cottage at Fourahbay Road, a good distance for them to travel but the only hospital open on Sunday. James just sent me the above pictures of Roo in the hospital.

Also remember little Samuel, 5 years old who has swollen lymph nodes and off and on fever.
Thank you, it is prayer that brought Nazareth House Apostolate into Sierra Leone, it is prayer that sustains it. Thank you. God bless you all.
