Imagine No Malaria

 Imagine No Malaria
Our Faith in Action


´┐╝Dear First UMC of Laconia-Gilford:
Thank you for your gift of $ 50.00 to Imagine No Malaria supporting the United Methodist
Church's commitment to eliminate malaria as a major source of death and suffering in Africa by 2015. Your support serves as an example of how we are living Christ's call to heal the sick and help those in need.
Imagine No Malaria includes continued bed net distributions, community education pro- grams with medical outreach training, radio communications programs reaching remote areas with vital information, and programs that strengthen clinics and hospitals to better diagnose and treat malaria.
Thank you for your generosity. Please continue to pray for our work and those we serve. Peace and Joy!
Bishop Thomas J. Bickerton, Chair, UMC Global Health Initiative.

UMCOR Thank You

Dear Friend in Mission:

Thank you for partnering with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
Through your gifts, you are helping to provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupts life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own. Through the compassion and solidarity of faithful friends like you, UMCOR is able to provide com- fort to those impacted by disasters, food for the hungry, and healthcare to those who otherwise would have none. One hundred percent of your gift through The Advance, the designated giving channel of the United Methodist church, will go directly to the people who need it most. Thank you for giving so generously.
