A recent evaluation of More Than Nets, Virginia Baptists’ malaria prevention and church planting project with the Ghana Baptist Convention, has brought encouraging news about our efforts.

more than netsRecords show that the number of malaria cases in the Adibo sub- district, a district that has been completely netted, has declined in the last year.

In a comparison of the 2013 and 2014 malaria seasons, there was a 42% decline in malaria cases.

“As far as we can see at this time, there has been no other change to the Adibo sub-district over the previous 12 months other than the distribution of nets to the entire district,” said Dean Miller, Glocal Missions team leader.

“We have potentially saved 969 lives through our efforts. When we add over 400 baptisms to that number, we feel blessed to make such a Kingdom difference through this partnership.”
