"Night of Nets is one of the great passions in my life. it connects god's heart for justice, the depth of my long term friendships and love for african friends and their communities, and the tangible desperate need for the simple net that saves lives and changes futures for generations. and i can't think of a better way to engage global need and seek to end malaria in jesus' name than to leverage the power of sport and the passion of this generation of students to make lives and our world better!"

"I joined the night of nets team because of the cornerstone go trip i took to zambia this summer. after seeing the amount of people that are affected by malaria and how much help a bed net is, i knew that i had to continue to raise awareness for this problem. it is a huge goal of mine, and all the people on our team, to get rid of malaria in zambia and in africa, and it is done one net at a time. I also wanted to keep the fire burning in my heart for the amazing people in zambia; this was a way for me to feel as if i am still a part of their country. it is pushing me to be uncomfortable in my country, which is full of comfort."

This is an organization that allows me to demonstrate the love of christ to others while simultaneously giving me the opportunity to get others more involved in the movement. i love working alongside chip and the team, organizing events, and getting our message out there. I am amazed at the hearts of those around me who so sacrificially give of themselves so that others may have. My hope is that this team and this movement continue to grow even after we wipe out malaria."

"My family has been involved with work in sub-Saharan Africa for over the past decade, but after seeing impact of malaria first-hand this past summer in Zambia, I have developed an even greater passion to help end malaria in our world. I cannot wait to see how God continues to grow Night of Nets as we work to bring hope and healing to communities through the simple tool of a $6 bed net!"

"I believe in the missions and goals of Night of Nets because there is a huge need in Africa for bed nets and Night of Nets truly does make a difference. As a Christian community, it is important to pursue providing bed nets for families in Africa because these people are children of God. Jesus told us to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and to love the least of these and by using the resources that God blessed us with, we can do just that."
