So my boy has decided to do World Vision’s 40 Hour Famine. This is the boy who wants to eat everything in sight from the moment he gets back from school. I think it will be hard. There will be highs and lows.
But it will teach him patience, perseverance and reliance on God.
We talk about food a lot in our home. We all cook and enjoy feeding each other.
As I write there is soup on the stove, ingredients on the bench waiting for dinner prep and one of the girls is making fairy cakes…..for all the fairies in our house!
So this weekend we will be sharing the idea of famine with the kids. My four year old reminded me today of being sad when seeing images of poverty in Africa at a Levi Mc Grath concert. They are never too young to learn about the world. And how Jesus Saves!
