Peter Jere, our only adopted son is suffering from a death threatening acute Malaria. On Sunday, the 16th October 2011, at 16.00 hrs, Peter came, crying that his head was paining and as usual, we prayed for him and he went to bed. That was very an usual for a strong boy like him. Later, Joyce gave him pain relief but according to Peter, headache was still there.
At 02.00 am, his body temperature shot up to 39.6 which was very high. We decided to take him to the private clinic. The doctor examined him and gave him the medicine and we came back at 05.00 am. The following day, 17th October, I went to a meeting with a friend.
Peter Jere in the clinicOn our way back, Joyce Jere phoned and told me that Peter was very sick and his body temperature had risen to 41c. The normal temperature of the human being is 37c. At that time, Peter felt very cold, shivering, weak, vomiting and his legs became very cold, which was a sign that the child was about to die. Peter told Joyce, that he was about to die. She panicked and I panicked. As I was driving through the city, traffic was very bad, it was bumper to bumper. I tried to get out of the main road, I prayed for Peter that God would touch and heal our son. Joyce took Peter in the cold water to reduce the high temperature. I managed to come home, quickly took Peter in our new car and Joyce jumped in and spade off to a private clinic.
We reached the clinic, the doctor looked at Peter and asked me to take him to the ward, tested him and found that his body temperature was very high about 41.5 degrees C. He has been found with Malaria, almost going into Cerebral malaria.
Will you please join us in prayers for our son, Peter Jere who is suffering from a death threatening Malaria? Peter is admitted in the private clinic. The doctor said that he would like to take many tests and see if there were many other parasites in Peter’s body. Peter lost appetite, making it more difficult for the medicine to work well. He is receiving some injections. Peter is on observations for a couple of days due to high temperature. Malaria is the second killer in sub Sahara Africa. Thank you for your prayers and support.
