On February 23-24, our middle school and high school students and small group leaders, participated in our annual 30Hour Fast. This year, we partnered with World Vision, to Silence Disaster by providing food, clean water, education, health assistance, shelter, emergency supplies, and safe places for children to play, learn, and begin to heal from the traumatic experiences that caused them to flee their homes. Our goal was to raise $19,800 and our students raised over $22,200! Thank you for your support and your prayers as we truly do believe that Every 1 Matters. It is so exciting to watch as our students have the opportunity to share in and experience life change that is happening here in NEPA and around the world.
Check out some highlights from this incredible weekend.
