BIG THANK YOU to all who helped with the World Vision 30 Hour Famine.  There were 29 participants (8 were elementary students who became “orphans” adopted by the teen tribes).  Ten teens were involved for the 1st time.  Four teens have no church family.  Six teens came from churches with no youth ministry. Food was collected for the WB Food Pantry and a total of $2,514.53 was raised of which $326.98 will stay here to help with local needs.  The money raised will help 54 kids survive a month or keep 5 kids alive for a year.  Since the famine began at GUMC, 96 children have been kept alive for a year.
