June 26, 2014
To help Baptist Global Response purchase mosquito nets for those living in places worldwide where mosquito-borne diseases are prevalent, the Woman’s Missionary Union of First Baptist Church, Butler, in Choctaw Baptist Association is collecting funds.
Franklin McLelland, director of missions for Choctaw Association, said Rock Springs Baptist Church, Butler, has become a financial partner with First, Butler, in the mosquito net project.
“These nets are so inexpensive and a good way to try to eliminate pain ... and death of some of those people if they can get those nets ... and not have to suffer all the effects of malaria and dengue [fever],” McLelland noted. Contributions may be sent to: Baptist Global Response, 402 BNA Drive, Suite 411, Nashville, TN 37217.
