It’s no surprise that children around the world are dying of starvation. As Christ-followers, we have a responsibility to impact lives around the globe as we obey our Jesus-given mission to go into all the world! This is just one opportunity.
On March 27th, 2013 our family will join thousands around the country in skipping a meal for the sake of children on the other side of the world. I want to invite you to skip a meal of your choosing on March 27th and donate the money you would have spent on that meal to the One Meal. One Day. effort to benefit the children of Compassion International. Compassion is vigilant in caring for physical and spiritual needs of children around the globe. Our family supports a young girl named Yhesica from Bolivia, so that she can have nutritious meals and attend school. Her story has opened our eyes to so many others who have needs just like hers.
“One Meal. One Day. 2013” will be focusing on the country of Ethiopia. Ethiopia suffers greatly from proper nourishment and education. Over 80,000 Ethiopian children participate in Compassion development centers. Compassion desires to give these children the opportunity to rise above their circumstances and become all that God has created them to be.
I have created a “team” that I would love for you to be a part of. Simply click on the link and donate as you feel led. It might be $5, which goes a long way in third world countries or it might be $15 or 20, the price of taking a few family members through the drive-through. I’d love for you to join my team as we feed children one meal at a time!! Join us here: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/ShannaLehr/2013

One of the great joys of this life is getting to be on mission with other friends and family who love to make much of Jesus. Thanks for being a part of the “Flourish” team!!
