Health Considerations:
Ministry in Africa is physically intense and care is inadequate and sometimes unavailable. Individuals with health concerns should seek medical advice. Rough roads, intense sun, heat, and lack of medical facilities are factors to be considered. Malaria prevention medicine is recommended. Please note that if you have ongoing needs of medication management or counseling related to depression, anxiety, PTSD, or sexual abuse, these resources are generally unavailable and you should consider applying at a later time.
