Here is an alternative to that dusting spray that makes you wheeze. Sure it smells good, but you can make your own version and it won't harm your air, furniture, or anything good on this earth. Look up your own versions of chemical things you have in your home. You can DIY almost anything and it's cheaper than what you buy and safer. For this dusting spray, you can add lemon essential oil or orange or any combination you want.

I hope Jahnes hasn't given up hope. I am rooting for him and many people on YouTube and there with Rise Up have not given up on him. Bless him for enduring all his sufferings. I send you my love, Jahnes, and remember you are not alone. Whenever you need something go to Jim or a member of Rise Up and I'm sure they will help you as much as they can.

Now, a message to my fellow watchers: I do not know what are the pink bumps on the top of Jahnes' toes that have no skin covering. Does anyone know what they are? I saw a lady in a video from another African country suffering from jiggers that had the same thing except hers covered all over her toes and into her feet. I could not help but cry out for her. I know it is jigger related, but in what way? Thanks for your help!

Jim, I have seen many of your videos like this in which you show the squalor people live. Each time I am mortified how bad it gets.This time I just wanted to close my eyes and wish this extreme poverty all away. We can not do this, though. Each of us must help to alleviate these poorest of the poor places and help the people living there try to envision and then create a new life for themselves. Rise Up and all of us who believe in it, can do this for people who have no hope. We can teach this man and his children to Rise Up from where they are to something better.

Thank YOU for giving my videos likes! I'm not like Jim or Sandra Lee and my fan base in 2. Ha ha. I do this because I love it and it started as therapy to help my brain get better after a stroke. Thanks so very much for your support, we are going to be good friends. Thanks again sweetie. JJ

Jim, you uplift my heart and I see you in just a video. I can only imagine the energy, through God's love, that you fill in the hearts of people there in Kenya. I do see God working through you and the children there. But let us not talk of me here and you there. We are all working together under God's love, and there is no separation in our plans to make Kenya and Africa jigger-free. May we all continue to give in the ways we can. May God's peace be with you.

+Monique Liddle Monique, actually 'no'. Where is the 'reply' feature that keeps it private? BTW: both e-mails I gave you are okay. My personal e-mail is unknown.

What I find interesting is Juliana has quite a lot of new jiggers, which is indicated by the white pregnant jiggers. Most of the older other men and women we saw had a lot of dead jiggers and scales, with the small brown ones in the massive scales on the heel. This question is to Jim and anyone who reads this comment: what reasons contribute to Juliana having more white pregnant jiggers than the black dead ones and the small brown ones that make up the mounds of scales in other older men and women with jiggers? Does the fact that she have more pregnant, & thus newer jiggers, have an impact on her stronger presence of mind versus being slow of mind like many of the other jigger victims?

Her feet were covered in old jiggers. I'm assuming the the number of new jiggers a person has depends on their environment and if they're around pregnant jiggers. As for the mind, that's a good question.

Seth Godin is brilliant in helping artists make a difference and getting people to notice them.
Harry Truman talked about where the buck stops. For every project, for every organization that lasts, someone is holding the umbrella. She's the one on the hook if things don't go well. She's the one who doesn't walk away from...

I am overjoyed John has a new home and yet I am very concerned about his leg. There must be someone in our connections who is a doctor and would take John's case. I agree with the other commenter that he could be healed, unless as +Mamite Geda writes that it is cancer (is that what you mean that his wound is cancerous?). I pray, John, that you have the strength and love to accept God's will. You have many people who are rooting for you and your hope to have a family. Know that you are loved and cared for by many, including our dear +Jim Nduruchi . Peace be with you.

Another person is jigger-free and learning how to keep his home clean of jiggers and its eggs. He seems motivated because he has faced other suffering in his life such as his hand and his 7 yr leg wound. Rise Up is growing larger by the people all the volunteers help and the Friends of Rise up. This experience is miraculous.!

I take back what I said in a previous comment regarding that the volunteer was not aggressive enough. This was an 11 yr old boy whose feet were covered in jiggers - so much that large portions of the flesh of his toes were gone and were replaced by jiggers &/or huge black scales. "Who are his parents?" kept screaming in my head. But they may be no more to blame because perhaps they are ignorant of the importance of hygiene &/or out selling their crops for food. My heart cries out for this boy and all the jigger victims, especially those with deformed or lost toes. I hope that we can continue to help the people struck by this horrible bug and help stop jiggers in Kenya and soon Africa.

This has to be my favorite video because of this amazing woman who has so much life in her despite the jiggers, her doctor's comment, and her age. I so enjoyed hearing her sing with you, Jim! She has such strength in her. I hope you continued video taping this session with her. I would enjoy spending more time with her and also seeing the jigger extraction and debridement as part of her case. Please show more of her. Thank you.

I'm glad we had a few more videos with Juliana. I must admit I do not enjoy watching these jigger videos. My heart hurts when I see these people in pain. Yet, when the young ones are brave, such as the boy who waits until after his treatment to eat his lollipop, my heart bursts. And this dear woman who sings at the face of jiggers, she reminds me what I must do to the face of multiple sclerosis. So, I have all kinds of emotions when watching these videos. But I wish the videos didn't exist because then jiggers wouldn't exist. As mentioned above, there are some positive outcomes to these videos.

This volunteer did an excellent job of being thorough and getting as many jiggers as she could. Too bad she didn't see the live jigger from about 6:42 to minute 7:00. I'm sure she would have squashed it!]

My blog web site is "Bends in the Road: One Woman's Journey Through Life's Turning Points"  (www.bendsintheroad.com). I  hope that you will join me as I explore how I and others manage through life's different ups and downs. Please drop by any time. I look forward to meeting you!
