DUMP DAY: Next Wednesday (May 5th) is Dump Day. Thanks for doing such a good job spreading the word. I think more people are going to be involved in giving to hungry people this year than even last year. If you’re a little unsure what “Dump Day” is, you can read all about it here. Whether we raise $700 or $7000, it’ll be a blessing to hungry people and we’ll give God all the glory. You can still help by …
- Spreading the word through your Facebook, Twitter, blog, email, church, etc.
- Stopping by on May 5th and making a donation.
- Asking the Lord to bless our Dump Day and the Honduras work.
30 HOUR FAST: I’m excited about the 30 hour fast that will coincide with Dump Day. It begins next Tuesday night and ends Thursday morning. The fast will be a reminder to us that there are hungry people in this world that can’t be overlooked. Just feeling sorry for hungry people is not good enough … we MUST take action. One cool thing is that while we’re fasting the people at the dump will be served a meal that day, and it will be one of the few times ever that the people of the Tegucigalpa Dump will eat better than we will. Are you up for the challenge of the 30 hour fast?
SPECIAL DUMP DAY GUESTS: I haven’t mentioned it yet, but my friend Rickey Husband and my son Parker are flying to Honduras next week for “Dump Day.” Both have such a passion for Honduras and the work there that they wanted to fly in and help with food distribution on Dump Day. While they’re feeding people next Wednesday, we’ll be here raising money to help feed them for another year.
VIDEO: I’m really hoping in the next few days to show you a couple of videos. One is from an actual Wednesday feeding at the dump, and the other is a documentary a friend of mine is doing about the Tegucigalpa dump people. Both will be incredibly powerful.
MY HONDURAS BRACELET: I have two rubber silicone bracelets that I wear on my wrist. One is my yellow LiveStrong bracelet, and the other is my Honduras bracelet. I occasionally take the LiveStrong bracelet off, but the Honduras bracelet is always there. My Honduras bracelet reminds me of three things every time I see it …
- First, that I’m blessed because I will eat today while others won’t.
- Second, to pray for the Honduras work and hungry people everywhere.
- Third, that I should NEVER be satisfied with just feeling sorry for others, BUT I must be willing to do something to make a difference in their lives.
