Starve Hunger

Last March, Mary and I agreed to help out with our church youth group's 30 Hour Famine. We thought that we would be doing them a favor in helping out...but it turned out that they would be the ones helping us. I can't even begin to tell you how blown away we were by these amazing kids. Going on hours without any food (or much sleep!) they cheerfully painted walls and swept floors for a local shelter, like that's what any normal teenager would be doing on a Saturday morning. They're such a tight-knit group and to watch them laugh, play, work, and pray together was such a powerful experience that it has stayed with us ever since. On top of everything, they raised over $4,000 for World Vision to feed hungry children around the world. We're so excited to be working with them again this March! We want to say a huge thank you to the group leaders, Judy & Monique, for their amazing vision and truly inspire us.
