Squash Malaria 2013

Squash Malaria! Throughout Lent, Sunday School collected pledges for mosquito nets for children throughout the world where malaria is an epidemic problem.  One mosquito net costs $6, and can protect 3 children.  Pastor Lynne stepped in and encouraged us to set a goal–not an impossible goal, but one that was challenging.  She promised to let the children paint her hair if we met the goal.

Our goal? 100 nets; Our total–nearly 114! $686.00 was raised! On Sunday, April 7, the Sunday School kids spray-painted Pastor Lynne’s hair out in the church yard! Lots of smiles were shared by all!
