So the school I work at is pretty heavily involved with world vision and the 40 hour famine. When I started there about 4 and a half years ago I had done the famine a few times but it was really exciting to see young people get behind a good cause! In the past couple of years I have been the "adult" "overseeing things" helping sign students up, organising BBQ's and cake stalls...when really the students are awesome and I'm there to cheer them on!
This year I thought I wouldn't give up food for 40 hours but furniture. Going without food tends to make me go a bit batty and feel unwell so furniture is was. It was a pretty uncomfortable 40 hours, our floor in our apartment resembles concrete with some old carpet over it...and I did have to find a place on the carpet when we went to church yesterday. It was a good experience and I was VERY thankful to climb into my bed last night and sit on the couch last night! It's a good way to remind myself that I am very blessed and to not take it for granted.
Have you ever done the 40 hour famine? or considered it?
