Eye Witness Report – Burkina Faso

Natalie Rizvi 

Yesterday, I got to see an area damaged by the flooding. There are people who lost everything, no one really knows the death toll, and thousands are living with no medical care, food or clean water. There is worry about a cholera outbreak which could be fatal esp. to children (you basically die of dehydration). I feel so helpless to help these people. There are children who have been refused medical care bc they can't pay and in one place 5000 people are staying incl 600 children under 5 yrs. They have been given 50 mats to sleep on and 40 sheets and there is a problem with gov't officials stealing food meant for the flood victims. I'm doing good though, we start teaching on Monday, so I'm excited about that. Anne-Marie is enjoying a pair of your boxers that you left.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
