CHANGING THE WORLD, ONE KID AT A TIME November 24, 2011

WE ALSO HELD A “NO MEAL, ONE DAY” FASTING AND WORSHIP NIGHT.

We partnered with One Meal, One Day – an event that Compassion International puts on and we invited our students to skip a meal (or all their meals for a day) and bring the money they would have spent on food that day to youth group for a worship event so we could sponsor the poor around the world.

The result?   Students fasted and prayed and gave $354 toward the Famine in the Horn of Africa and pledged enough money each week for us to add another child to our sponsor list.   I’m so excited to introduce our students to a girl from Thailand that we now sponsor through Compassion International.   Her name is Keke.  May God use our youth ministry to completely transform her life as we partner with Compassion.

Here’s some pictures to tell this new story.
