Hope's First FMSC Pack = Success!

Hope Helps to “Feed My Starving Children”
by Adrian Lance

Millions of children worldwide die of malnutrition each year.  But there is hope.  Feed My Starving Children works with many partners to provide meals to such children.  On the weekend starting Friday, February 21, about 500 volunteers packed meals in Hope’s gym.

Hope students recruited a third of those volunteers.  Michael Skaggs, who leads a Hope Students small group, said “It is a very rare thing to have an entire church working together to achieve a goal.  It is even more rare to have kids as young as 5 years old working along with seniors and every age in between.  It was such a blessing to me and my family.”  

Pauline Halm recalls:  “Often cheers would go up as another box of food was ready to go.”  She was happy to learn that the food was destined for Beaumont, Haiti, where many Hopers sponsor children.

It was amazing to see how the church came together to accomplish such a monumental task, possible only with God’s help.  By the end of the weekend, 108,864 meals were packed.
