Lutheran Malaria Initiative needs your help

Your help is still needed,  LMI is a partnership of the LCMS and Lutheran World Relief in Baltimore to mobilize U.S. Lutherans in the global fight to end deaths from malaria in Africa.  Will you, your congregation, or school partner with us between today and World Malaria Day 2014,  so we can build mercy capacity among our church partners in Africa, and ultimately aid those who suffer from the devastating effects of malaria? 
Together you and others in the LCMS are making a difference.  The death rate from malaria in Africa has been reduced by half since the inception of LMI and other anti-malaria initiatives. In Tanzania Bed mosquito net usage rose from 55 to 87 percent in program areas.· Through the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania, an LCMS partner church, LMI programming is in place in 60 percent of the country.

Your help is critical.
