CHUM Youth raise money to finish paying for Panguma secondary school addition

Camp Hill United Methodist (CHUM) youth participated in a 30 hour fast this past weekend to raise awareness and funds the people in Panguma. Please read Youth Ministry Director Drew Robeson’s message below to learn how God is using CHUM’s youth for amazing purposes and how you can support their efforts.

Hungry for Hope is all about students at CHUM fasting from food for 30 hours in order to empathize with the poor and hungry, all while raising awareness and funds for the people in Panguma, Sierra Leone! God always reminds us how blessed we are and causes us to be grateful again. On April 29-30, students gathered already hungry, to play games, pursue Jesus intently, create their shelter for the night with tarps and string, go bowling, raise funds by going door to door locally, share from their heart various experiences and feelings of hunger or deeper appreciation and we close our fast with worship and Communion!

We have created a few levels of fasting for students over the years and this year we had 11 people participate in our “Water Only” version of fasting. However, it is not easy for most whether you are drinking juice or water for 30 hours and to celebrate the end of the fast with Communion is incredibly moving. Students serve each other Communion as we remember and reflect upon the willing sacrifice of Jesus Christ! I wish you could all be there for those closing moments to simply observe the reverence and gratitude in the room, I am blessed to be a part of Hungry for Hope!

Donations are still coming in before we have our final dollar amount raised but I am already proud of our students! We owe $14,806.21 to pay off the debt of the completed school addition at the Secondary School in Panguma and we will keep you posted on our progress, thanks for reading.

 

Donations can be made using the Camp Hill United Methodist Church’s online giving page. Please be sure to use the Hungry for Hope donation line.
