40hr famine

Originally uploaded by james veltmeyer
The 40hr famine was on over the weekend. St Mark's had a bunch of young people involved. They went without: food, talking & furniture.
We met a girl Sami from Kenya who was 8 years old. It's hard to believe & take in how she lives each day.
I asked the people who were going without furniture what they were going to do when they finished their 40hrs. Jump on their bed, lie on the couch & other things.
Unfortunately people like Sami don't get the luxury to make that choice.

Awesome God, help me to give generously towards the work of World Vision. Give me a heart for people who are struggling in other countries. Amen
