“For nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
PVUMC was a Silver Sponsor at the downtown Phoenix MobilePack event in July. As a church, we donated $2,500 and 43 volunteers registered to pack. In just two hours, with many hands, we packed 138,456 meals which will feed 379 hungry children for a year. We prayed over the 641 boxes and turned hunger into hope. FMSC announced on Wednesday, August 3, that hundreds of volunteers participated in the weekend event. Together, they were able to pack 1,026,432 meals, over and above their goal of one million meals. Amen!
The meals were shipped to El Salvador, one of the poorest and most densely populated countries in Central America, as well as to Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, according to FMSC’s Katie Koranda. Click here to see some photos and read more about the event.
