The Malaria Initiative is a key effort of the LCMS. In fact, all 35 LCMS districts are participating. The goal for our congregation is to increase awareness, raise funds to purchase mosquito nets, and actively pray for the people in Africa. In conjunction with our 150th anniversary celebration, we intend to present a check to President Harrison with the funds we raise for LMI.
