12000 Hatian Children fed Every Day

videoThe Global Food Project provides an almost unheard of opportunity to serve hungry and hurting people overseas!

Jack & Georgia receive their support from personal friends and local churches. They cover all of their own travel costs. When invited to preach in churches they do not accept 'love offerings' or missionary offerings.

100% of their offerings are used for the purchase of rice and beans for overseas distribution, without a dime or a penny withheld for administrative purposes. Convoy of Hope pays to transport the food to the warehouse, to the port, and to the nations where it is needed.

In the heart of Convoy of Hope the celebrities are the poor we honor in our distributions, outreaches and projects.

I encourage you to read Isaiah 58 again - and again! God speaks - "Day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God." Then the Almighty goes on and says, "Yet on the day of your fasting,you do as you please and exploit all your workers."

In verses 6 - 10 God redefines what He sees as a proper fast. He explains what is lacking when prayers are not answered.

Oh, dear friends - let us give heed to the heart of our Lord!

"One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed." Proverbs 11:24-25
