NO MORE MALARIA UPDATE: The Michigan Area is over halfway to its goal of raising $1.5 million, and saving 150,000 lives, through the Imagine No Malaria campaign. Thank you for your participation and your generous giving. Being halfway there means we have further to go and we need your support to get there. Between now and December 31, 2014 we need to raise $700,000 to save 70,000 lives. You are an important part of reaching this goal. The $1.5 million goal was based on $10 for every one of the 150,000 United Methodist in the Michigan Area, which includes your church. At your charge conference you will be asked to report on what your church will be doing between now and December 31, 2014 to assist in meeting the Area goal. For churches who have already reached or exceed the $10 per member goal, you are encouraged to consider giving more. For churches who have not yet met this goal, now is the time to start so that together the entire Michigan Area will help to drastically reduce the number of deaths caused by malaria.
