THE 30 HOUR FAST

Are you up for a 30 hour fast?

Today 25,000 children under the age of 5 will die from a lack of food and from poverty. Sadly, that shouldn’t be.

How long could you go without food? Could you last 30 hours without food? There are some of us (my children) who can’t go a few hours without hollering, “I’m hungry.” As most of you know, on May 5th, we’re having our 2nd annual “Dump Day” to raise money to feed the hungry people who live and eat at the Tegucigalpa, Honduras dump. That’s less than a month away. This year I want to do more than just give to feed the hungry… I want to understand (to a very small degree) what it’s like to go hungry. I want to fast 30 hours during the “Dump Day” marathon, BUT I don’t want to do it alone. I want to challenge some of you to do it with me.

Check back here this coming Monday, and I’ll give you all the details on the 30 hour fast. Are you up for the challenge?

    Trey, "for the least of these!". I love the plan and will be honored to participate. As you know, we welcome any and everyone to come here to be a part of our work. If anybody wants to come here the week of the 5th of May to feed hungry folks on the same day that many others are joining the team, well, pack your bags and come on down. I have plenty of room in my house and we can fast and pray as a team. We can end our fast at Carnitas.

    Let's do it. It will certainly help us have compassion on their daily plight.

    Will lunch be served during this fast? I've seen ads for seminars on fasting and the cost of the seminar included lunch!

    I'll join you in the fast.

    Sherry – Great

    Greg – No lunch will be served, you funny man :)

    Our youth group just did the 30 hour famine and we raised over $2,000! I'm super proud of all our students! :)

    I'd love to participate! And I hope to be in Teguc in February on my way to/from Mission Lazarus work.

    I might be able to get some folks from HH to participate as well!
