Put Feet to Their Faith With a Project Through Samaritan's Purse to Provide Mosquito Nets for Families!

Do the children in your ministry face the concern of being bitten by mosquitoes and contracting malaria each and every night when they go to bed? Are the parents of the children in your ministry worried about the very real danger mosquitoes pose to their children?

For most of the people who read this blog, mosquitoes are merely a nuisance - not a very real and life-threatening danger. Sadly, for people in many parts of the world, this is not the case.  Again, according to the President's Malaria Initiative, The World Health Organization, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, worldwide -
  • 3.3 billion people - half the world's population - are at risk of malaria
  • One million people die each year from malaria
  • Every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria
You, and the children in your ministry can make a real difference in the fight against malaria. Samaritan's Purse has a project you can involve the children in your ministry with where they raise money for mosquito nets. For $10, Samaritan's Purse is able to "provide a bed net treated with natural insecticide to kill mosquitoes and keep children safe and healthy. As local Christians hand out these nets, God gives them opportunities to tell families the message of eternal life."

Involve the children in your ministry in this project to keep children safe and share the message of Jesus with children and families around the world!
