Sufferings Here Do not Compare to Glory There
These earthly bodies that the Lord has given us are disposable, temporary, vulnerable to pain, sickness and ultimately death. BUT, imperishable, immortal bodies are promised to us forever. So bring on the multiple vaccinations, the malaria prevention medication, the baking sun, the mosquitoes, the bug spray, and so on because this body is already sentenced to death and my perfect body is coming.
I had a missions professor in college that had scars from the mission field and he shared with us that he was honored to bear marks on his body due to his devotion and service to Jesus. These bodies are not meant to be preserved, but instead are to be used to transport and speak the Good News of Jesus all over the world. So why not be subjected to heat, disease, possible persecution, and very different foods in this temporary body so that others can be spared from Hell? A new body is coming very soon.
