I want you all to meet a good friend of mine. Her name is Grace, and she is one of several intelligent young college students I had the privilege to hang with in the Real Life College ministry at Trinity Bible Church in Richardson.
Grace has something of a project going on this month. Her project, “Hungry for Change,” is the coolest thing to hit Youtube since Chocolate Rain, and she doesn’t even have to move away from the mic to breathe in.
In an effort to raise awareness for world hunger, Grace is opting to adopt the average diet of Zimbabwe residents, who currently struggle with poverty and food shortages. For the next month she will be consuming only 800 calories a day, and will be posting a video on youtube explaining how hunger has affected her. Her overall goal is to raise awareness concerning world hunger (you can watch her first, explanatory video here).
The video below provides a glimpse of what this project is going to look like over the next month. She’s got quite a challenge ahead of her. But it’s such an encouragement to see young people rising above the status quo and demonstrating a genuine, heartfelt concern for others. So Grace, you’ll be in my prayers, and may God use this project to produce change in your life as well as ours.
