Honduras only has two seasons: dry and wet. The wet season is from May to October. Sometimes – and due to the higher influx of rainwater – dengue fever outbreaks occur. Mosquitoes thrive in wet environments, especially in standing water.
This disease is spread by mosquito bites and has affected a great deal of our Honduran brothers and sisters. The symptoms are usually severe body aches and pains, drowsiness, and loss of appetite. In villages where work, food, and lack of medical supplies are scarce, this disease only increases day-to-day stress. Please pray for our friends. Pray away dengue!
