Dear Friends,
We thank you for your continued prayers. It seems that malaria is making its rounds with our staff on both sides of the ocean. Kadijah is now making great strides in recovery but Fr. Seraphim is still down with it. It has been a rough go and we're not expecting much improvement for a few days. This has been the hardest hit of malaria on either of them. Your prayers are so very important to us and to Nazareth House Apostolate. Please keep them up.

We are sorry for the gap in Blog Posts, bear with us as we tend to getting everyone better. Thank you.
