Dear Young Leaders:
I am writing to express my appreciation for the great experience of worship and fellowship at the recent Ignite 2014 event held at Camp Quinipet. I still smile when I think about the great worship, fun games, and my introduction to “selfies.” I am also writing to offer a challenge.
As you may know, the New York Annual Conference is participating in the denomination’s Imagine No Malaria campaign. We are raising money to purchase bed nets that will prevent people from contracting malaria. I invite the youth of the Annual Conference to participate in the following way:
- Organize projects to raise funds for Imagine No Malaria. Every church youth group that raises $100 or more will be listed in our online newspaper, “The Vision.”
- The church group that raises the largest amount between now and July 31, 2014 will receive a personal visit from me at one of your worship services (with the support of your pastor) where I will present a personal rap about what God is doing in our lives.
I hope you will take on the challenge I have outlined. If you have any questions about Imagine No Malaria, please contact Lynda Gomi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let the journey begin!
All my prayers,
Bishop Martin D. McLee
