Imagine No Malaria
Check out our new poster in the Narthex showing our progress!!
Every 60 seconds, malaria claims a life in Africa. It kills an estimated 655,000 people each year, most of them children under 5 and pregnant women. Transmitted through the bite of a female anopheles mosquito, malaria is a parasite that initially causes fever, vomiting and joint pain. Left untreated, its symptoms progress to convulsions, organ failure and death. It's time to imagine a United Methodist Church that feels and responds to the vision of a world without malaria and includes us all in this mighty work. Dove joins with the Desert Southwest Conference in working towards a goal of saving 200,000 lives. More

What else is going on at Dove?
There's always something going on!
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
I am about to do a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
