I recently had the privilege of travelling to Southern Africa to spend time with our Every Child, Every Day partners there. It was a very special time…but also incredibly sobering.
I saw first-hand the devastating impact of the intensifying drought, which is hitting the region hard. With each passing day, the soil hardens, the crops weaken and the people grow hungrier.
And of course it’s the children who are most at risk.
I met so many precious kids who are living with the daily reality of gnawing hunger.
And so I’ve returned home with a renewed resolve. I am more convinced than ever that our 90 days of promise campaign is simply vital. As you know, we have promised to fast track 15,000 of the world’s hungriest children into our Every Children, Every Day programme.
So can I urge you to pray with me as we move forward in this critical campaign? We must meet our goal to ensure every one of these hungry children is fed.
As always, our vision is simple: to bring children hope for today and for eternity – by providing food and sharing the love of Jesus.
My trip to Southern Africa has reminded me again of the amazing impact friends like you are having. For so many desperate kids, your support is really a matter of life and death.
So thank you for your partnership! I pray God will ‘bless you abundantly’ as you ‘abound in every good work’ (2 Corinthians 9:8), as together we press on to show more children how good a full life feels.
Because a full life feels good,
