Hunger - Map

DECATUR, Ga., — The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is joining with the Catholic Church and other faith groups in prayer to end world hunger. Pope Francis, in conjunction with Caritas International, has issued a worldwide ‘wave of prayer’ against world hunger beginning at noon Tuesday on the South Pacific island of Samoa.

On Tuesday, the CBFblog ( will highlight the many ministries of CBF field personnel working to end hunger around the world. CBF encourages individuals and churches to participate in this “wave of prayer.” In addition to online posts through the CBFblog and other social media outlets, the CBF staff in Decatur, Ga., will gather for prayer at noon Tuesday, with other organizations and leaders in the Decatur area.

CBF’s hunger ministries can be found in 20 nations across four continents. These ministries meet the varied needs of those served. Examples of CBF’s efforts to end hunger include: emergency food assistance to Syrian refugees in Lebanon, healthy snacks and meals to teens in Homestead, Fla., food distribution among the Dom people in the Middle East, a weekend meals program in Mitchell, S.D., a food pantry for immigrant families in Fredericksburg, Va., food and water to survivors of the Haiyan typhoon in the Philippines, meal subsidies for children in Nanning, China and a lunch program for Romany children in Bucharest, Romania.

“We are challenging churches in our fellowship to sponsor impromptu or organized prayer events in their community on or around Dec. 10, even using their natural time of worship,” said Devita Parnell, CBF networks manager and liaison to Bread for the World, a CBF-partner organization that advocates for an end to world hunger.

    Fellowship to participate in ‘wave of prayer’ to end hunger
    | Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Blog. And I do have
    some questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like a few of these responses appear as if they are coming from
    brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at other online sites,
    I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.

  12. If so, you may have some deeper rooted problems than I can help you with, but
    I can help satikate the need with some Final Fantasy
    XIII wallpapers. Yoou can take a loiok at ‘Final Fantasy XV’ and ‘Kingdom Hearts 3,’ which do not have
    official release dates, in the slideshow located to the left of this article.
    After that, I could go into the calibration screen and the analog sticks worked.

  13. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  14. In the early 17th century, Phu Quoc was a desolate area where Vietnamese and Chinese immigrants earned their living from the highly coveted
    sea cucumbers. When somebody mentions grow tents an awful of people have no idea what is meant.
    Although colder weather shuts down and destroys tender vegetable plants,
    you do have an alternative for growing your own succulent
    vegetables, and that is to utilize a grow closet and
    garden indoors.
