IN THE SPIRIT: Church body vows to wipe our malaria

Published 04/14/2012, Grand Forks Herald

The church body: United Methodist. The disease: malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. The time period: three years. Christened, “Imagine No Malaria,” this mission project has been wholeheartedly embraced by Thief River Falls United Methodist Church, which just last weekend exceeded $10,000 on its way to its total pledge of $20,000.
