World Malaria Day

There is a global  effort to end the devastating disease called Malaria. Over 3.3 billion people in 106 countries are at risk. April 25 has been set aside as a day to call the world to help prevent, diagnosis and treat Malaria.  A half a million lives are lost to this preventable disease each year.  The youngest children under age five are the most vulnerable.

Community health workers are put into place as caretakers  of children who have been infected.

"During the rainy season like March, malaria cases rise,"  Makono a health worker explains.
"I see 30 children every day and 20 out of the 30 have malaria."  The child is given a three day drug intervention to treat malaria which saves lives.

Makono is from Malawi, Africa. He starts seeing mothers and their children as early as 6:30 in the morning.  He is one of 2,105 health workers supported by the Presidents's Malaria initiative through the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The good news about this disease is the reduction of deaths has declined dramatically because of the interventions in place.  Many are purchasing mosquito nets to help save lives.  Five million houses in thirteen countries have been sprayed with residual insecticide protecting over 18 million people.

As I enjoy spring in Texas I want to remember others who need our help.

Resurrection Power

The resurrection power of Jesus is given through the Holy Spirit by faith in Him.  It  flows through us as a river of life.



"But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. " Romans 8:11.

"For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. " Galatians 6:8

Jesus said,"I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in ME, though he  may die, he shall live. and whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.  Do you believe this?"  John 11:25-26

Jesus said to him.  "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."  John 14:6


Leviticus 8:6  "Then Moses brought Aaron and his sons forward and washed them with water."

Leviticus 16:30  "because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you.  Then, before the Lord, you will be clean from all of your sins."

John 3:5;  Jesus answered, "Very truly I tell you,  no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.



Amos 5:24  "But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!"

John 4:13-14  "Jesus said to her, Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty.  The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life."

Hebrews 10:22  "Let us approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water."


Happy Easter!!!
