Dengue Fever outbreak

Dengue fever is an annual problem in Southern Taiwan, but this year there has been a higher incidence of people affected by this mosquito borne disease than usual. The China Post reports in an article found here, that since May there have been over eighteen thousand confirmed cases and 90 deaths in Kaohsiung alone.  In our church, one church member and two family-members of church members have contracted the illness this year. Although it is a painful illness, it is not usually fatal; those who succumb most often have other underlying health conditions that make them more susceptible. Pray for God’s continuing providential care in our lives and in the lives of our church families.
