Part of our homeschooling has been reading about other people groups. It has been eye-opening and I realize how little I know of the World.
In church today we talked about missions. Two facts stuck with me:
Over half of the world lives on less than $2 a day.
30,000 people a day die from hunger.
In Sunday School (we teach 2nd grade), the kids told me some of their favorite foods and we figured out how much they eat a day and approximately what it would cost. $7 - $14 was what we came up with.
Our church is challenging us to have a rice and beans fast until church Wednesday night.
Later this week, the sermon will be posted here:
Only rice and beans for 3 days??? This idea is not going over too well with the kids... I'm kinda excited. Anyone know any good recipes?
I'll update how we are doing!
