Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world, and a large island near the east coast of Africa, in the Indian Ocean. It is the home of exotic plants and animals, and most of the world has missed the news that it is the source of a drug to fight the COVID 19 coronavirus. The Artemisia plant, from Madagascar, is the source of medication to treat Malaria. SOURCE: Aremisia (genus) The President of the nation is now promoting Artemisia extract as a treatment for the COVID 19 virus, and it is being exported to Africa, where it is emerging as a preferred treatment. There are many personal testimonials, and researchers are investigating. I believe something out there will stop this virus pandemic, and the end may come quickly. God knows if a plant from Madagascar will make a difference. “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” (Psalm 24:1)
Most Christians in western countries don’t know that there is another world out there. God is working in the whole world. Some Nigerian pastors in mega churches are being criticized, and it’s easy to focus on the criticism and miss the sheer size of their work. They wouldn’t be noticed by the critics if they didn’t have millions of followers. We are living in a time of Christian ‘future shock.’ There are some things we should know about Africa. Christians in countries like Nigeria are spreading their influence around the world. Christians in Africa numbered about nine million in 1900, and today they are about 380 million.
