Seventeen adults and youth will be participating in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine on April 29 and 30. We ask that you keep us in your prayers. It’s a fun event, but let’s be honest – it’s NOT easy to go without food for that amount of time. Thankfully we do it in community (it really makes it easier) and we do it to proclaim that now is the time to make a difference. We are still accepting pledges. Go to our St. Paul’s 30 Hour Famine site to help: http://youth.worldvision.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=14264.
Our youth group and confirmation class is going hungry on April 29 and 30 to help save kids’ lives. Every $35 we raise can help feed and care for a child for month!
WHAT: We’re learning about hunger, raising funds to fight it through World Vision, and then going without food for 30 hours to understand what millions face every day.
WHY: Because we don’t want to be onlookers while nearly 8,000 kids are dying every day from hunger-related causes. We’re choosing to stand up and make hunger our fight.
WHAT ARE WE DOING FOR 30 HOURS? Fasting (starting at school at 12:30) + Games + Friends + Service + God. You can help by sponsoring a youth. Contact Leah Dail, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
