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 here to read the entire story, which goes into more detail than I 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.

Click below to learn how PCCNA and World Vision are joining forces to help churches take a stand in the war on malaria. Watch as PCCNA Chairman Rev. Jeff Farmer, World Vision President Rich Stearns and World Vision Chief Catalyst, Rev. Steve Haas share the vision.
