we were reminded of the crucial role we all play in reaching out to that generation—the role of being the hands and feet of Jesus. Together, we truly are continuing to make a difference.
Grapevine, Texas (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
This September, 18 ladies, led by Lisa Young, wife of Pastor Ed Young Jr, embarked on the journey of a lifetime. The team gathered at Fellowship Church’s Miami campus in preparation to visit 6 of the 24 orphanages currently sponsored in Haiti by C3 Global.
A dinner at the Fellowship Church Miami campus was hosted by Lisa, with a purpose to inform the ladies traveling on the trip of where the Haiti initiative had first begun. With the help of contributions, C3 Global and Fellowship Church has been supporting orphanages beginning in the first 24 hours after the devastating earthquake struck in 2010. This vision for assisting the country of Haiti has blossomed into a long term plan to see the next generation of Haitian children transformed.
The ladies went with the purpose of visiting with the children and touring the orphanages. They took various toys, considered a luxury to the children, such as silly bands, stick on earrings, coloring books, jacks, and soccer balls to give as gifts. While in Haiti, the team fed approximately 300 orphans, serving food in 5 of the orphanages that they visited.
“During our time in Haiti last month, we saw firsthand the hope of eternal transformation in so many children. And as we departed, we were reminded of the crucial role we all play in reaching out to that generation—the role of being the hands and feet of Jesus. Together, we truly are continuing to make a difference.” – Lisa Young
So far in 2011, C3 Global has contributed to 1,450 children attending school and receiving daily nutritional support, with 65,250 meals being provided to 24 orphanages each month. By the end of this year, 783,000 meals are expected to be supplied.
