Operation Inasmuch Feeds 50,000

We didn’t start out with 5 loaves and 2 fishes, BUT we did feed 50,000 people! How?

Operation Inasmuch, Kids Against Hunger (the local affiliate: A Child’s Hope), and the North American Christian Convention (NACC) co-hosted a service project at the recent NACC conference in Cincinnati. 

In four 1-hour shifts, about 250 men, women, and children worked together to fill bags with long-grain rice, vitamin-fortified crushed soy protein, dehydrated veggies, and chicken-flavored vegetarian vitamin and mineral powder. Those who receive the food onlinepharmacies247.com/strattera_generic.html bags add the contents to boiling water, creating enough nutritious meals to feed six. Kids Against Hunger took care of the logistics. We recruited the participants and paid for the materials. And we all had a great time!

These 50,000 meals will be sent to countries like Haiti and even to the hungry in our own backyard — in Appalachia.

What a blessing it was to serve others while having fun and fellowship at the same time!

July 5-8, 2011 NACC: UNLEASHED!

Operation Inasmuch will attend the North American Christian Convention (NACC) in Cincinatti, Ohio from July 5-8.

NACC exists to provide ideas, inspiration, and identity to churches, ministries, and their leaders. The convention brings together church members and leaders from diverse generations and ethnic backgrounds to encourage, equip, and empower them for greater impact in the Kingdom of God. The theme of this year’s convention is “UNLEASHED: The Church Turning the World Upside Down,” based on Acts 17:6.  The Holy Spirit was Unleashed on the Church, so that the Church would be Unleashed on the World.

We hope that many churches at the convention will also be Unleased to engage more fully in compassion ministry to their communities! Operation Inasmuch will have an Exhibit in order to encourage churches to Join the Compassion Revolution by conducting an Inasmuch Day. We will also conduct two workshops that introduce compassion ministry and Operation Inasmuch (July 6 & 7 at 8:30 AM). A highlight of the Convention, we will recruit attenders and exhibitors to become involved in a service project called Unleashing the Church on the Hungry. Volunteers will assemble food packages on Thursday afternoon, July 7.

If you plan on attending NACC this year, make sure and stop by and visit us at Booth 1009… and help us feed the hungry!
