This is Hamisi. He is 12 years old.He is paralyzed from his chest to the feet. This happened when he fell down from a tree a year ago while hunting birds. His mother brought him to us one morning and what we saw was very sad. Hamisi has four big bed sores and one of the sores is on the spine and is so deep that you can see the spinal cord. This is the pictureon the left but is abit dark that you cannot easily see the spine through the hole.
By God´s grace we have been applying simple natural remedies like aloe vera with carrots and also massaging his legs for a better circualtion. The picture that you now see shows some great improvement as all the sores are getting abit smaller. It was not an easy situation to see the those big sores at the beginnning but through prayer,the Lord has strengthened us to minister to this poor boy.Please remember him in your prayers and we will update you of his condition.We are still continuing with the treatments and should the Lord impress you to give suggestions,we would be grateful.

'Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.' Joshua 1:9
Thanks to God I had a good journey to Mombasa despite that my all cash and bankcards were stolen in Madrid (I still had my passport and I could continue travel) and my suitcase arrived some days later (I had a very short time to change the plane in Cairo, so my suitcase didnt managed to the next plane). As I arrived the air was at first very strange humid and hard to breathe, but I got used to. I was most warmly welkommed at the airport and at the center.
Already next day we spent wonderful Sabbath day at Indian ocean.
Strange to think that its so hot all the time here and in Estonia its cold, and winter.
I have been for now councelling different ladies with their health complains. Its just amaizing feeling to introduce to those ladies 8 health laws, and pray with them for receiving strength and courage from God to implement the health laws in their life. Also we introduce to them natural remedies like garlic, turmerik, cayenne pepper, hydrotherapy, massage, exercises for the whole body. So later they are coming back and giving report how are the things proceiding and how do they feel after changing their habits. People are really willing to listen and try out. Many havent never heard that its possible to live more healthier and in this way get rid of their sicknesses. In many cases people are very poor to buy food and clean water, so they eat all the time the same food like Ugali (made from corn) and often drink water even from the river. Many children and grownups have health conditions like Astma becouse of bad hygiene and dusty air. In general people are easygoing and kind, having a lots of time to wait patiently when comes their turn to receive the health councel....I admire that.
This area where I stay is noisy all they long already at four in the morning the life starts with loud music.
I am just so much fond of this fresh fruits that we are eating here, papayas, mangos, avocados, passion fruits, coconuts ect. And just so surprised that locals are rarely eating their treasures like raw fruits and vegetables...they dont realise the precious value of them. Its written in the Bible: 'And to every beast of the earth, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.' Genesis 1:30
Many people cant afford buying Bibles and many dont know how to read. Usually I have been translated from English to Swahili by the local medical workers.
On Sunday we had outreach in one village...people came and we received lots of help through natural therapies and remedies. Straight after finishing it started to rain, and when we started to drive car driver just couldnt keep the car on the slippery clay road...and started to drive on the side of the road, sometimes car stucked so much in the pit that the help was needed, we prayed a lot, and I knew God had everything under control. Car driver was seemingly upset, but when we got out, he agreed that it should have been God who helped.

The sugar most commonly used is not included in any of the foregoing groups, and is not natural to the body, and is a very unfavorable food. It is "sucrose", a double-molecule wherein two single molecules similar to the diagram already given, are linked together, like one molecule of glucose and one of fructose tied together. These two single sugar molecules when separated are natural to the body, but when linked together they irritate any tissue they contact. They cannot be separated by the saliva in the mouth or the gastric juice in the stomach, and while they are finally separated in the small intestine and enter the blood as simple sugar, their separation is made after considerable delay, and with difficulty; and until they are separated they are strong irritants to the celles of the mucous membranes of the mouth, stomach, duodenum and small intestine. This irritation often causes serious trouble.

1/2 kg strawberries
honey according to taste
lemon juice according to taste
Blend cashews and add the remaining ingredients, blend until creamy.Cut and put some fruits on top.
Sugar and the kidneys
This concentration of sugar in the blood fluctuates from 100 milligrams of sugar in 100 cubic centimeters of blood to 180 milligrams. When it exceeds 180 milligrams the kidneys release the excess into urine and it is lost from the body. The level at which the kidneys release the sugar is called the "threshold". The constant handling of large excess of sugar by these kidney cells is held by some writers to be one cause of kidney cell damage.
Sugar and the pancreas
Sugar is rapidly absorbed from the digestive tract into the blood and if large amounts are eaten at a time so that it enters the blood faster than the body can use or store it, the result will be a "high tide" of sugar in the blood. It is said that in this case the pancreas secretes a large amount of insulin than it normally does. If this is continued over a considerable period until the cells of the pancreas are depleted, diabetes could result.
2 tbs Tahhini (sesamy paste)
1 tbs honey
1 tsp coconut butter
1 tbs Carob powder
1 tsp beepollen if wanted
bit water, depends how fluid or thick you want it to be.
Mix all ingredients well and use as a spread on the bread.
I have been often asked why do I not consume sugar and food that contains sugar. There are many different sorces of sugar that I will mention in my later postings. Many are wondering how it is possible to survive without cakes, candies or cookies that you can purchase in the shop. Nowdays its not so easy to get food without "bad sugar". I have to be very selective in shop, reading carefully labels. BUT I have A LOT of other subsidies for "sweet" things, like fruits, honey (easy to get as we have bees), dried fruits . I try to eat food in its natural way, the less processed the better. So it became already my habit for a reason. I found some good stuff about how the body uses sugar from the book Abundant health.
Sugar is very important element in nutrition, but its nature and use are little understood by most people. The easy way to understand the matter is to begin with sugar as it is found in normal, healthy blood, where, for every thousand parts of blood, one part must be sugar, - the substance the body cells burn to produce heat and energy for use by all parts of the body. This blood sugar is derived from certain kinds of food. The body can convert a portion of the protein and fat intake into this sugar (glucose), but the larger part of the body's supply is secured from starch and sugar.
Storage of sugar
When taken in three meals to provide for 24 hours need, the supply is not uniform or steady enough; there is apt to be either a "feast" or a "famine". Too large amount would accumulate in the blood at one time unless there were some way to regulate it. For this reason temporary storage is provided in the skin, muscles and liver. The liver stores sugar in a "compressed" form called "glycogen", and on demand from the blood it releases it again as glucose for use as needed. When it is stored in the skin no chemical change takes place in it as simply an outflow from the blood stream and an inflow back into it which is called storage by "inundation". The storage of glucose in the cells is called storage by "segregation" which is more complicated than storage by "inundation". Shortage in the cells and release from them is thought to be under the control of the nervous system in cooperation with glands on internal secretion.

Last week was for me just one adventure. First of all I went to visit my granny in Viljandi, and the same day we went to the sea, 100 km drive. On the way it rained so strongly and the thunder was so strong. Granny was so disappointed in the weather and she convinced me to turn back, and I tried to convince her not to give up our goal to reach the place. So I didn't even think about to turn back. So we arrived and came out from the car and were so amazed about the weather change, we just hugged each other and praised the Lord for hearing our quiet prayers. It was sunny whole afternoon and the water was very warm. Later evening I visited my good friends.
My 2 relatives from Boston visited Estonia, it was great to communicate with them and I took them to the airport to Riga. I was thinking that they will leave from Tallinn, but the same morning it came out I have to drive to Riga, Latvia. Good experience anyway.
