United Methodist Day at Feed My Starving Children
"He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry."Psalm 146:7(NIV)
On Friday, January 18, we have reserved slots all day for United Methodists from the churches in the southeast Valley to pack meals at Feed My Starving Children for malnourished children in more than 60 countries around the world.
“Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.
“The process is simple. Donations given by people just like you fund the meal ingredients. Volunteers hand-pack the meals. Meals are donated to FMSC food partners around the world, where kids are fed and lives are saved!” (FMSC.ORG)
From July, 2016:
“With Gods continued blessing, we’ve reached the 1.5 billion meal mark! This means children like 3-year-old Erix in the Philippines in now healthy and has hope for the future.
Erix was sickly, irritable and tired easily. His mother thought he was teething, but our partner in the Philippines discovered that he was very malnourished.“We don’t know what to feed our children to make them healthy!” his mother said. Weeks after the regular feeding of Manna Pack Rice™ began, Erix had an amazing transformation.”
Packing sessions are scheduled at 2 hour intervals, and we have slots reserved all day! Bring your family, or your Bible study or Sunday school group, your coffee club, whoever! Sign up by calling the church office, or emailing Pastor Sharon for the link!
