Port Byron youth sets $5,000 goal for Imagine No Malaria
Imagine No Malaria is going to be the mission focus of the children/youth at Port Byron First UMC with the support of the Missions Teams (who will be pledging to save 2000 lives over 3 years and do a Change for Change collection once a quarter). The Youth set a goal of wanting to save 500 lives this year. They already have ideas of how they want to achieve this goal.
On a recent Sunday, during morning announcements, children and youth stood in front of the church. To build awareness, every 45 seconds I turned them around and draped a black cloth over their heads symbolizing the children in Africa who had died during our 5 minutes of announcements. At the end of service a visitor of the church approached me and gave me $20. Can't wait to see what God continues to do!!!
