Welcome to Dump Day 2010
I’m excited about today, because today we’re going to put others needs above our own. Today we’re going to do one of the simplest, most Jesus-like things we could EVER do … we’re going to feed the hungry.
While the average American family spends about $341.98 on food per week. Here’s what a week’s worth of food looks like.
Sadly, the people who live at the Teguciglapa dump eat what they can find in the trash. To learn more about the Tegucigalpa, Honduras dump, click here. Warning Graphic video.
Thankfully, Marc & Terri Tendall and other missionaries are willing to help feed the Dump People. We just need to raise the funds. That’s what today is all about. The funds we raise will go directly to help those in the dump. Your funds provide food for the hungry and milk for many of the babies. Please feel free to donate any amount.
Today Marc & Terri Tindall, Rickey Husband, my son Parker and others will be at the dump to pass out food. To celebrate this day “Dump Day,” Marc has added a piece of fried chicken to their food today. Generally the only fried chicken the dump people get to eat, is some that has already been eaten off of and discarded in the trash. So, while they get to eat today, we’ll raise some money so they can continue to be fed. And for those of us fasting today, I think it’s great that the dump people will eat better than we will.
