On Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22 — the God Squad Youth Group participated in the World Vision 30 Hour Famine at Baker Chapel. The 30 Hour Famine is an opportunity for our youth to feel the hurts of a world in agony, a chance to step outside themselves if only just for a moment. And it’s a way for them to make a real difference in the lives of society’s most hurting souls. By doing the 30 Hour Famine, our youth experience a life in which their needs are met in Christ. During this retreat, they learn to see, not just to look…to empathize…to take action. To live out the Gospel for themselves.
