    Finally I was somewhat close on one of the answers!!!

    I Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for YOU!!!”

    And the answer is …


    Using bed nets treated with insecticide can reduce malaria transmission as much as 90 percent.

    Bed nets are treated with insecticides that are not harmful to humans but are highly toxic to insects.

    Compassion provides bed nets to children and their families through the Malaria Intervention Fund.

    As much as 90%!

    No wonder the malaria fund works to get treated nets to all of the at risk Compassion children and their families.

    Do you know that if you buy one of the malaria t-shirts, $10 goes to the malaria fund! That is enough for one of the treated nets!!

    + or – 7% right??? hopefully + 😉

    No idea… but 90% sounds good! Wow…I can’t believe it’s that much! Let’s get more nets out there.

    My guess would be 97%!!! A 4.0!!! A 5.0 if we are on the weighted scale!!! I think it is obvious that having a treated mosquito net is like wearing a bicycle helmet. It is much more difficult for me to get a head injury if I am wearing my helmet. Likewise spiritually as well.

    Malaria transmission is decreased by a whopping 90% by using these mosquito nets!!

  8. Britt April 15, 2009

    Decreases by 90%

  9. Sarah April 15, 2009

    The nets decrease transmission by 90%. Pretty good odds !
