I visited Melenchthon yesterday in hospital. He has been there since early September, in a coma most of the time.
He is OK. He'll be back on his feet in due course.
He came back from a humanitarian mission in Chad the previous week, feeling unwell, then collapsed and was hospitalised. He was very insistent that people should not be alerted to his condition, at least until the prognosis was clear.
Which is why you, and plenty of other people, have had no news of him. But he's back on the social networks today.
It turns out he has a particularly virulent form of malaria, which has an 80% mortality rate. The doctors were very pessimistic for the first couple of weeks, keeping him in a coma while they tried everything. There were fears for his vital organs. But it turns out there is no lasting damage to anything; he has lost a lot of weight and all his muscle tone, but it's only a matter of physiotherapy now.
It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue
