Those of you who normally read my site know that I do not often write about personal matters. This site is primarily about discussing Christianity and how our Christian beliefs carry over into how we live our lives.
One of the things that I believe that we (as Christians) do far too poor a job of is caring for the less fortunate. As a pastor, I am trying to instill a willingness and desire to change in this area in those I have an influence upon.
This year, I am leading students in my church in a 30-hour famine. The famine is designed to raise awareness and financial assistance for those in poverty around the world (especially children). Do you realize that 26,000 children die every day from preventable causes like hunger and lack of basic medical care? We need to help.
In an effort to do our part, our group will stop eating on June 19th at 12:00 PM and not eat again until June 20th at 6:00 PM. Through a partnership with World Vision, we hope to have individuals sponsor us in our famine by making donations to this cause. Those donations will be used by World Vision for relief efforts around the globe.
Would you consider sponsoring us? You can make a donation or learn more about World Vision and what they do at the link below. Thank you.
