30 Hour Famine Complete

9 of our Senior Highs participated in World Vision’s 30-Hour Famine which ended at 6:00 pm last (Saturday) evening. I’m always impressed when youth fast for 30 hours – this bunch this year went well above and beyond in washing Opal, pulling weeds, helping get ready for VBS, as well as the various hunger and poverty related activities provided by World Vision. Love Hungry was the theme.

I arrived toward the end of the Famine, and I have to say that the kids were still pretty sharp, despite not having slept much the night before.

Much thanks to Sherry Johnson for her leadership – and to Paul for his bringing dinner!
