"For Such A Times As This: We are United Methodists Transforming the World"

 Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

I am writing to remind you of a very special opportunity you have, personally, to participate in the transformation of the world. I am talking about the IMAGINE NO MALARIA MISSION EVENT at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, June 9 at Hofstra University.

Every week, we read in the newspapers about some hero who has risked his or her life to save the life of another. We celebrate those heroes, because we know that they have responded to God's call to care about another person. We, too, have the opportunity to save lives! Children die every day in some parts of this world, of Malaria. They do not have to die early. They can live, if we take on the challenge and rise up to be their heroes. In the name and love of Jesus Christ, we can do that by giving $10 each to "Imagine No Malaria" at our upcoming 213th Session of the New York Annual Conference. On Saturday, we will receive the offerings from churches, from children and youth, and adults who dare to dream, and more, about a world that is free of this killer disease.

Clergy and Laity of the New York Annual Conference, please plan to be present at our special event at annual conference on Saturday, June 9th. Join us with as many people as you can mobilize, particularly the children and youth. There will be fantastic activities for our children and youth, and there will be an opportunity for them to make their offering to God's mission of saving lives through "Imagine No Malaria."

Free lunch (hamburgers and hot dogs) will be provided for children, youth and those who accompany them, at the tent and in the Public Education Building. We need to know how many will attend from your church. For more information and registration, please click here>>

I am looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, June 9th.

With you in Christ's Ministry,

Jeremiah J. Park
