Outreach and Education

VBS and Sunday School Materials – “Pete the Pig”

One of our most popular projects is “Pete the Pig”, inspired by a boy named Wilber who, in 1913, bought a little piglet and named him Pete. When Pete was big and fat, Wilbur took him to the market and sold him for $25. Wilbur then donated the $25 to American Leprosy Missions to help cure and care for people affected by leprosy. Today children can collect their coins in piggy banks and use that money to support ALM’s ministry.

World Leprosy Day

Since 1954, individuals and churches around the world have joined together on World Leprosy Day, the last Sunday in January, to reach out with love and compassion to those affected by this terrible disease. All of the materials you will need to participate in World Leprosy Day are available on our World Leprosy Day page. Materials include: poster, video, bulletin inserts, sermon notes, Sunday school materials and much more.
