Paul Ratsara, President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church's Southern Africa-Indian Ocean Region, on Interfaith Cooperation to Address Malaria in Mozambique

August 1, 2007

We are doing evangelism, building new churches, fighting malaria and digging wells for the community. Isn't this a testimony that Mozambique is in focus for our church in this region? [...] Malaria kills everyone, no community is spared. [...] There may be doctrinal differences between the people of different religions, but we are brought together to fight the enemy. It's our challenge and our opportunity. [...] We must show ourselves involved on a national level, and on a local level. It's our duty to be there, everywhere the church is active. [...] Our church is well-placed and is rich in human resources for developing a course of action, including training and distribution of aid. We must be leaders in such an effort. Our strength is in the Lord and in knowing that the Adventist lifestyle has much to offer.
