Partner With World Vision to End Malaria

by | Apr 16, 2012 | Blogs, The Strang Report

world-vision-mosquito-netsMy son Chandler and I traveled to Africa in 2006, and we had to
sleep one night under a mosquito net. That’s because the
possibility of malaria is still real in the remote area of Malawi
where we visited.

Malaria was a problem in the U.S.
until around the time I was born. A concerted effort was made to wipe
it out. The same can be done in Africa, where it killed nearly
600,000 people in 2010—mostly children. The thing is, we can save a life
with a $6 sleeping net that is treated to kill the malaria-bearing
mosquitoes.

We wrote in our February issue of Charisma about how Jeff
Farmer, former president of Open Bible Churches, had a vision to
partner with World Vision to make this happen. In his role as
chairman of Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America, he
organized the group to join with World Vision, and they are asking
churches to join the fight by hosting a Malaria Sunday. (Watch their video below.) Their goal is
to gather 1,000 churches by World Malaria Day, April 25. Pentecostal/charismatic churches around the country who host these
events will see a video and take up an offering. You can click
here to
see it.

For generations Pentecostals have let the more liberal parts of
the church work to save lives, preferring to save souls. I don’t
disagree. Often the liberals try to save lives because they no longer
believe in saving souls. But this is a way we can save lives, show
the love of Jesus and be a witness. Remember Jesus said if you do it
to one of the least of these, you’ve done it as unto him.

If your child was dying of malaria wouldn’t you want someone to
help? Please click

can here.

Watch the video and make a donation as I am. And if it’s not too
late to sign up your church, call this number to find out more:
1-888-303-2003. But do something. Together we can help stamp out this
dreadful disease.
