30 Hour Famine March 8-9

Gift Catalogue - Paroumba ADPThe 2013 30 Hour Famine will be March 8-9. The Youth will participate in 30 Hour Famine to raise awareness for world hunger. This will be held at the Kershaw Methodist Church building where students will fast from food for thirty hours.  During that time, they will participate in studies, play games, worship and more.

The fast will conclude at 6pm on Saturday night with a meal for participants and their prayer partners. If you’re interested in being a prayer partner or helping with the meal on Saturday to break the fast, please let Cami know.

Maybe you would like to voluntarily fast during that time too!  Learn why someone would do this…

WHY: We’re going without food to understand the hunger millions face every day, and raising money to do something about it. Just $30 can help feed and care for a hungry child for a month through World Vision!  We don’t want to just sit around while as many as 7,000 kids die every day from hunger-related causes. Together, we can make a difference.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: Here are three ways you can come alongside us.

1. Pray. Ask God to work in and through our students.

2. Volunteer. Join us for an amazing Famine weekend!

3. Give. Write a check to World Vision and give it to the contact person below or put your offering in the Giving Box on Sunday with it clearly marked.

    Well, I can’t say I’m wild about the obesity comemnt, as though there’s a relationship between fatness in one country and famine in another—indeed, that seems to undercut the main point of the article. But why give up a chance to blame teh fatties for the world’s ills?Jonathan Mann, of blessed memory, made the point, in talking about human rights and health, that no reasonably democratic country with a reasonably free press has ever experienced substantial famine. Food shortages, of course, but famine requires a particular political system. (India, for example, experienced multiple famines up until independence [the last in 1943, with independence in 1947], and none since.)
