The things we take for granted

Friends of Melissa and I are currently in Malawi working for Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief (CPAR). Tess's recent post about the state of medicine in Malawi is pretty scary. We are very very very blessed here in Canada where we do not have to worry about diseases like malaria, where our children have excellent chances of living past their fifth birthday, and the average person can expect to live into his 70's. We live in a society of abundance, of plenty; sometimes of over-abundance and excess. Testimonies like Tess' remind me that I really need to be more generous to those less fortunate.
