Director Kids Against Hunger St. Peters
March 16, 2023
Great beginning for 2023 and more to come!!
Kids Against Hunger St. Peters joined with Convoy of Hope to send 95,000 meals for relief to Turkey and Syria. We continue to share the love of God through meeting the needs of the starving around the world.
A great time was had by all who attended the Global Compassion Ministries Gala to learn about the upcoming mission trip to Peru. We were able to sample Peruvian culture and hear some heart moving testimonies and stories. Board members Karl Leiber and Terry Estes both shared their hearts regarding the ministry. Kids Against Hunger St. Peters Director Steve Williams and his wife, Maribel shared their vision for the mission trip. They were followed by Pastor Daniel Duke as he shared about his time as a missionary in Peru, and how this trip is going to benefit those in Peru.
(We have a complete team going but you can be part of what God is going to do in Peru in May by donating. Designate PERU in the donation form).
And looking into April, we have a pretty full schedule. Check your schedule and plan a packing with your group, either in the end of March. There is room in May and beyond.
It is absolute mind-blowing to try and comprehend even a glimpse of the immensity of these five words:
“And the Word became flesh.”
There is so much to dig into there, but I am going to just write a paragraph I wrote about the visible, the invisible, and my pride.
God created our eyes and brain to interpret light (that He provides) as it reflects off matter (that He provides), so that we can “see” things. These things we see, we call “visible”. When we think of things that are “invisible”, we think of them as less real. We base our perception of reality on what we can “see” with our God-given eyes and brain, and His light and matter. We seldom think of the “invisible” or give it value. How blind and short-sighted and proud!
2 Corinthians 4:18- “while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen;
for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

WE DID IT!!!
With Lots of help from people hosting food packings, which involves raising the funds, gathering the volunteers to come actually pack the food, which is lots of fun, to all the people who donated canned goods, to those who came and loaded the trailer, we have sent a trailer on its way to Haiti.
LET’S DO IT AGAIN!!! It’s time to get your food packing date on the calendar. We have three packings so far for October. Plan to raise the funds, line up friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, club members to come pack the food and set a date. It’s as simple as that. Let’s fill up the calendar for the rest of the year.
WOW!!! We updated this information this morning and this afternoon we have another food packing scheduled for November 20!! Keep them coming!
