Saint Michael and Mosquito nets

DSC_0035 (422x540) (402x515)This past May a friend and I taught an icon workshop. The image we wrote was of Saint Michael the Archangel.

The icon was a communal piece, with both of us working on it.

The church my friend attends takes a mission trip yearly to Uganda, where they distribute much needed mosquito nets and medical supplies. Thousands of people from the area walk many miles for the opportunity to receive a mosquito net to protect their children while resting or sleeping, which greatly lowers the possibility of them contracting Malaria.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this Saint Michael icon will go toward nets. The church will return again to Uganda in late summer to distribute more nets and medical supplies.

The price of this 11″ x 14″ icon is $750.00, which will buy 75 nets.

Doesn’t it seem fitting that Saint Michael would be protecting the children?
