Shameless Plug

Once again, it is time for my shameless plug for a wonderful organization that you should all be involved with in some fashion or another.  Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization that does exactly what the name implies, feeds starving children throughout the world.  If you live in Minnesota, Illinois, or Tempe, Arizona, I encourage you to volunteer at one of their facilities.  If you don't live in one of those areas, go here and give them money!  Really!  They are extremely efficient with the donations they receive, 93% going towards actually feeding children and only 7% in overhead.  They packaged and delivered 124 million meals worldwide last year!

Tonight we spent an hour and a half packing meals at their Eagan, MN facility.  In that time, 13,000 meals were packed and will be shipped next week to the Philippines.  In that same time, we had a blast packing said meals, enjoying time with family and generally having fun.  I can't think of a more enjoyable place to volunteer!

And where else can you get everyone to wear hairnets without complaining?

 Even a five year old is old enough to help :-)

 And when it's all done, you can pray over the boxes in the warehouse.
