Save the Date: World Malaria Day 2016

Mark your calendars! World Malaria Day is observed internationally on April 25, which this year is a Saturday. We are encouraging congregations to commemorate World Malaria Day on Sunday, April 26. This will be the final observance of World Malaria Day within the ELCA Malaria Campaign, and it is our hope that all Virginia congregations participate! As always, we will provide worship materials and informational resources as the date approaches, which you can use to inspire a meaningful Malaria Sunday observance in your congregation.

Hans Rosling data lecture
Dr. Hans Rosling of Sweden presents a compelling statistical argument that shows we are making significant progress in improving health in Africa. Great discussion piece for adult forums! Play the 15 minute video and start the discussion. Reducing child mortality is an imperative for our church. It is truly God's Work; our hands. And we are making a huge difference in the public health sector. Your dollars at work every day through the church infrastructure in Africa. Join our Team!
