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

Children always look forward to summer - warmer temperatures and all the activities they can do once again outside! Along with the joys of being outside, come the "pests" . . . mosquitoes. Children everywhere know what it is to be bothered by a mosquito. Sadly in many places in the world mosquitoes are more than just a "bother". They can spread a deadly disease, malaria. More than a million people die world-wide each year from malaria - most of these are children.

As you work with the children in your ministry this summer, consider involving them in projects to raise money for bed nets treated with natural insecticide to kill mosquitoes and keep children safe and healthy. Just $10 provides one of these nets, and sends people who share the good news of Jesus with the people who receive the nets! This is a project the children in your ministry can understand - they all have dealt with mosquitoes - and once they understand how these nets can save lives, you will have children who are engaged and empowered to make a difference!

Along with involving your children in projects to raise money for mosquito nets, involve them in praying for the children and families who receive these nets so they will learn about Jesus and his great love and forgiveness!
