There are several people in my life (bloggers and friends) who sponsor children through Compassion, a proven and legitimate agency. We haven’t yet taken the plunge, but I read yesterday here and here (The Original Mud Puppy is a great blog, by the way) that tomorrow is World Malaria Day. One child dies every thirty seconds of malaria in Africa, that we know of, when prevention can be as simple as a mosquito net. For only ten dollars tomorrow, we can buy a net that will help lengthen and improve the life of another human being.
Tomorrow, Isaac and I are going to work together and do jobs around the house and go visit a grandma that might have some work for him to do so he can make and send $10 to someone in need. I want to teach my kids to get up and do something. Let’s stop talking about malaria. Let’s keep praying, but let’s be effectual doers (James 1). I am usually a poor example of this, but maybe you’ll be pricked with me on this one issue. Go here: Bite Back!
