    Make Malaria History

    I am an M-O-S-Q-U-I-T-O ouch!

    A musical mosquito at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Medford, WI sings its support for the ELCA Malaria Campaign!  The song is set to the tune of the popular Sunday School song “I am a C” and comes to us from Pastor Pete Warmanen. It’s a new twist on an old favorite!

    Check out the video below and consider using it for an emphasis on malaria during Sunday School or VBS. The lyrics are on the screen, so everyone can sing along.

     

     

    St. Paul’s has raised $1,500 for the ELCA Malaria Campaign and has challenged other ELCA congregations to follow their lead. They are inspired by the goal of “15 by 15 for 15″. In other words, congregations are encouraged to raise $1,500 by 2015 towards the ELCA’s goal of $15,000,000.

    St. Paul’s Ministry Coordinator Michael Lindau writes ”$15 million may sound like a large amount for us to raise to fight malaria, but with over 10,000 ELCA congregations working together — it is a goal we CAN & WILL reach! If every ELCA congregation would raise at least $1,500 by 2015 for the ELCA Malaria Campaign we would surpass our goal of raising $15 million to help put an end to Malaria! We, at St. Paul’s ELCA of Medford, WI, just raised $1,500 this month for the ELCA Malaria Campaign!  We challenge other congregations to do the same!”

    Thanks to St. Paul’s of Medford for sharing your talents and techniques with the ELCA Malaria Campaign!
