Well, I have been planning a missionary update for awhile.
Mark has been doing great.
He has been having a wonderful experience in Uganda and doing some pretty fantastic things.
Yesterday we found out that he had been hospitalized because he had contracted Malaria.
Apparently the malaria medication that the missionaries take to prevent them from getting it made Mark really sick. He told me he was going to stop taking that kind and start taking a different kind.
He never started taking it.
If I were in Uganda right now I would be giving him a really intense Mom Lecture.
Complete with raised voices and a whole lot of finger wagging.
It's hard to know the complete story because, it seems missionaries only touch the high points of what is going on with them.
This is what I got....."DON'T FREAK OUT, but I had Malaria."
Any other details I got were from what he told my daughter Makenzie.
Which, by the way, I'm quite sure are also just a few snippets of the story.
He says he is on the mend.
I hope so.
Mark.....don't MAKE me come and get you! ;)
Love ya, buddy. Get better soon.
