Whenyou’re poor and hungry, you give up something each day. A parent gives up theircup of rice for their starving child. A young girl gives up her dream ofreading—tragically, poverty demands sacrifice.
Congregationsand people all around the world will today begin celebrating the season ofLent. As an expression of faith, individuals and families will give somethingup–coffee, candy, even Facebook or Twitter–as a daily reminder of thesacrifice made on their behalf. But whetheryou celebrate Lent or not, giving up something important to you can be profoundand send a powerful message if you dedicate your season of Lent to HeiferInternational.
