It's never too late to accept God's call and experience the profound spiritual flourishing that comes when we share
with the hungry. Be sure to return your Peter Fish banks next week. We'll take a collection next week that will go
directly to World Renew's work with families like the Egongus. Don't know who the Egongus are? Discover their story
in your devotional. 821 million people around the world are hungry! Next week, we'll be observing World
Sunday. But God wants more than an observance of
days. He wants our hearts. In your mailboxes are the
World Hunger Campaign devotionals. Spend some time over the next two weeks considering His call to "spend
ourselves in behalf of the hungry." It's an amazing opportunity that comes with a profound promise.
