Prayer Request – Cholera Outbreak in Guinea

Greetings from Guinea!

The past few weeks have been wonderful for us! We were blessed to host a MOST Ministries eye glass team here in Siguiri for 2 weeks. What a blessing they were to us and to the many people they served here in the Siguiri area! We couldn’t have asked for a better group of people – but hey, a bunch of Lutherans from Minnesota – what could be better! We miss them already! We will share more about the team in our upcoming newsletter.
Today we come to you with an important prayer request. There is currently a cholera outbreak in the Siguiri area. Cholera is a bacterial disease usually spread through contaminated water. Cholera causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. Left untreated, cholera can be fatal in a matter of hours even in previously healthy people.There have been other outbreaks in different parts of Guinea in the past few weeks. Many people have died. We will begin our clinic work again on Monday and we know we will be seeing people affected by this outbreak. Please pray that people will take the proper precautions and that medical treatment will be available for those who are sick.
Trusting in Him,
Jack & Cathy Carlos

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
