Change the World 2012 seeks to build community locally and fight malaria globally, and some regions are banding together for conference-wide events. The Louisiana Annual Conference is supporting the anti-malaria effort through 5k runs – all benefitting Imagine No Malaria. This effort promotes healthy church members and saves lives of countless individuals suffering from Malaria – which kills one child every 45 seconds.
The Call to Action report reminds us that vital congregations have “disciples engaged in mission.” Change the World is an opportunity to connect your mission-minded disciples with the mission of the whole denomination.
