All Hail the Mosquito

"Malaria killed 863,000 people in 2008 (I’d have guessed it was more); 89% of them were African and of those, 88% were under 5. A further 243 million were infected worldwide. Seven African countries – the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, southern Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda – account for two-thirds of all the world’s cases."

Go to the link and see for what we have sacrificed 863,000 people. It should make us all pause in our lust for saving the environment. Funny how satan can use a good thing like caring for the earth (which God gave to His special creation, man, to care for) and turn it into a thing to worship and harm people. All in his evil plan. Thank God that Jesus has turned the curse around on the cross and many of those children are now will Him in a perfect place with a perfect parent.

We need to turn around our desires and help the Africans kill the mosquito so that it never kills another child again even if that means sacrificeing a few birds!
