Every once in a while I read something I think the pubic should know. Such was the case in the recent GUIDEPOSTS under the Pass It On section. Thatís what Iím doing Ė passing it on.

Malaria infects more than five million people a year. The mosquito-borne disease is especially deadly in Africa, where a child dies from malaria every 30 seconds. Astonishingly, there's a simple low-cost way to prevent this devastating disease - mosquito net for beds.

Young Katherine Commale of PA was shocked when, at age five, she learned about malaria - and she was especially saddened to hear that children her own age routinely died from the disease.

But when she found out how effective bed nets are, it gave her hope. She built a diorama, filled it with dolls and a piece of netting, and gave a presentation to her SS class at Hopewell UMC.

Her church mobilized, helping her make bookmarks and pins to increase awareness of malaria.

So far Katherine and her family have raised more than $18,000 for the Nothing but Nets campaign to send nets to children and adults who desperately need them. At $10 a net, that donation can save a lot of lives.

April 25 is Malaria Awareness Day. Take up Katherine's great cause and learn more at www.nothingbutnets.net.


Can you or will you help?



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
