It is very hard to communicate treatment to young parents in Africa. Unfortunately, I have just talked to Mako who went to check on Emmanuel first thing this morning, only to find out that they have taken Emmanuel away to another village about 65 miles from Kabala. sigh... His worm treatment is complete, the worms should all be dead. The intensive treatment he needs now is strictly nourishment. I pray that, wherever he is, he will receive this nourishment.

Mako is investigating this sudden move out of Kabala for little Emmanuel and will report back to me when he finds out the details. Please keep Emmanuel and his parents in your prayers. I would have felt more comfortable knowing he was in the NHA environment in Kabala and being looked after by many who care, but it is what it is... Pray.
