We're not asking to send more money overseas but rather making sure that money that is already being sent is put to good use. This is an opportunity for people to get involved in advocacy efforts that can make a significant difference," Dent says. It is also part of an effort to spread Bread for the World's grassroots efforts to mobilize local Christians and their church congregations in prayer and social action, fulfilling its mission as a collective voice calling for change on behalf of the poor and needy.
The workshop is open to the public and will be held at Hope Reformed Church, located at 2010 Kalamazoo SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49507. Participants are encouraged to bring a business-sized envelope, a forty-two cent stamp, and a writing pen of their choice. To learn more about Bread for the World, visit www.bread.org.
