Small projects – big impacts!

22 Jan 2019 | Author: The Leprosy Mission Australia

The New Year is a great time to pause, think and pray about how we can best serve The Lord and people affected by leprosy and disability. Prayer, of course, is paramount. And you may already have something specific on your heart that you will do this year. But if not – you may consider these projects that will directly impact the lives of people affected by leprosy and disability in a practical way.

Perhaps you can inspire family and friends or your small group or church to join with you in providing financial support to defeat leprosy — one small project at a time! And bring Glory to God in the process!
