In Micah 6:8 we read “… and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” What better way to show God’s love than to help provide for those in need?
Please consider participating in the Charlottesville‑Albemarle CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, October 14th. Walkers from other churches and organizations will join us with the goal of raising $30,000 to help feed the hungry and assist those suffering from disasters.
Everyone can participate. If you are able to walk with us, please contact Taylor Beard for a Donation Envelope, route map and other information. Ask people to sponsor you in the CROP Walk. If you are unable to walk, please be generous when approached by a walker.
By working together as people of faith, we can make significant differences in the lives of those in need. Consider the example of Marisa, a 10-month-old child from rural Indonesia whose parents brought her to the Therapeutic Feeding Center. A nurse determined that Marisa suffered from severe malnutrition. She used a CWS program to supply micronutrient (magic) powder for Marisa. After this powder was regularly added to her food, she began to get better. Now, after a couple of years of receiving the micronutrient powder, Marisa is happy and healthy. Money raised from CROP Hunger Walks can be used to purchase this powder.
Thank you for this consideration.
