Help Give a Farm
Sunday School Compassion Sunday Project
by Sonja G
The Sunday School compassion project for November and December is “God’s Global Barnyard,” a project of ELCA World Hunger. Sunday School offering through December 11 will be put towards this project. The kids chose to challenge themselves with raising enough money to purchase a family farm ($715.00). What is included in the Family Farm? A cow, a couple goats, a dozen chicks, two pigs, farming tools, seeds and agricultural training, and support which can help a family achieve a fresh start. With new tools and techniques, crops will grow stronger than ever. Eggs, milk, and meat from the farm animals provide a lifetime of food to eat and sell on the market, helping a family escape the cycle of hunger and poverty – for good.
