Prayers for Kadijah

Imagine being 8.5 months pregnant, feet swollen, belly extended. 

You are excited that the pregnancy is about complete and soon your little bundle of joy will arrive.

  Suddenly you are roasting, yes, the West African heat is beating down on you... but there's more...  you have fever, chills and it feels like a train is traveling through your head... pounding, roaring... 


Please keep Kadijah in your prayers as she struggles with late term pregnancy complicated by this dreaded disease mosquito born disease.
