Please pray for those impacted by the Zika virus, a tropical disease spread through mosquito bites only, which is a mild disease lasting only a few days or a week, and rarely requiring hospitalization. However, Zika is a great threat to pregnant women, as it has been connected to a birth defect called microcephaly, a neurological disorder. As there is currently no vaccine to prevent Zika or medicine for treatment, please pray as doctors and world health organizations continue to work around the clock looking for solutions, and for the particular protection of our Bolivian and Central and South American partners, staff and friends.
