So yesterday I woke up with a funny feeling in my stomach,
but I began the day as normal with some toast a la peanut butter and jam.
However by 10 oclock, half way through Swahili lessons,
I was starting to feel nauseated, so the lessons were cut short and I began to rest.
Later I saw my friend John briefly, but also had to cut that time short
due to nausea again. From the afternoon on I was in bed all day,
with nausea, fever, body aches and fatigue.
So English lessons yesterday and this morning were cancelled.
Today I have been feeling better, with only mild fatigue and cramps.
However I went with my pastor to a hospital just for a check up and some tests
and the test came back positive for malaria.
So I have received my official welcome to Africa.
Twelve pills a day for the next three days will be on my menu,
but hey, I was praying for a way to switch malaria medication anyway.
Please pray for a quick recovery so I can get back to teaching
and what God has for me here in Congo.
All to God.
