Today’s blog is simply this…the people of Haiti need our help. Feed My Starving Children is a Christian non-profit organization. A single meal costs only 17 cents to produce, and 94 percent of total donations goes directly toward the food program. On February 5-7, Blue Grass UMC will be packing meals for the people of Haiti.
Monetary donations are needed to cover the costs of the meals. The smallest donation can make the biggest difference for those in need.
Blue Grass Church has been planning this packing event for several weeks. Our original goal was to produce 100,000 meals to be distributed throughout the world through Feed My Starving Children. Little did we know that a massive earthquake would ravage Haiti just weeks before our planned event.
In response to that need, we’ve expanded our plans and are ramping up to produce 200,000 meals. All of these meals will be distributed in Haiti. Over half of the $34,000 needed has been donated.

IN ADDITION: for every person who signs up today to receive my blog daily, I will donate the cost of a two meals per person. Quick math…thirty four cents per new subscriber. This may not seem like a lot…but I’m praying that so many people will respond that is will stretch our already tight budget beyond what we think we can give. We have had our income cut by70% in 2009…but God has been faithful to meet every one of our needs. So I know he will meet this one as well.
Think about it…pray about it…and then act upon it…in His name.
