For something so small, they cause a lot of damage. In many parts of the world mosquitos are far more than just an annoying little bug. They are dangerous and even deadly. Why? Because mosquitos carry the malaria virus. Malaria is a big problem for developing countries, and it’s one we can’t afford to ignore. Here’s why: Sick kids can’t attend Life Centers. Our Life Centers offer children a space to meet Jesus and grow in their faith. But when kids get sick with malaria, they’re too weak to come their Life Centers, often for weeks or even months on end. That means no Bible lessons, no discipleship with their Life Center teachers, no new songs about Jesus, and no memory verses.
