30 Hour Famine

My daughter will be participating in a 30 hour famine this Saturday through Sunday with the youth at our church. They are allowed to drink juice and water but can't eat anything.

The fast is an international youth movement to fight hunger sponsored by the United Methodist Churches.

My daughter collected money and is really excited about it.

She's talked about how hard it will be to go without food for a day and a half but she also realizes the importance of this drive for people who go without food on a daily basis.

They will work at the compassion resource center to keep them busy and help keep their minds off their growling stomaches.

I am proud of her for doing this. :0)
