A Michigan church made their vision a reality when they gathered thousands of volunteers to prepare over two million meals in three days to feed hungry children around the world last weekend.
Pastor Brad Powell of NorthRidge Church led the "2 Million Meals" project with nearly 9,000 helpers who assembled the meals consisting of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and 21 vitamins and minerals. The meals will be shipped to El Salvador, Haiti and the Philippines, where 5,560 children will be able to eat a meal every day for one year.
"The truth is, this has been an amazing experience because of the impact it's going to cause in the lives of every child and every person who's going to eat these meals," said Powell, according to ABC News. "But I think you can see from the energy in this room and all that's going on it's going to change more than just the lives of those who will eat this food." more >>
A new book on Ruth and Billy Graham contains many lessons today's Christians can learn from the couple.
"There were so many books – several hundred – on the ministry and life of Billy Graham, but a real biography of the couple I could not find," Hanspeter Nuesch, 30-year director of Campus Crusade for Christ in Switzerland, told The Christian Post in an interview on Thursday. Nuesch explained that "Ruth played an important role in his ministry – she was his life partner in everything." His new book, Ruth and Bill Graham: The Legacy of a Couple, was released last month.
Nuesch laid out five key lessons Ruth, who died in 2007, and Billy Graham, 95, taught with their lives. He suggested modern Christians apply these lessons to their lives today. more >>

Zoe Kerley, a 10-year-old diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension living in Maynard, Ark., came home Thursday to find her room completely decorated in a "Duck Dynasty" theme, with posters, camo, and "Duck Commander" merchandise filling the room. Kerley's wish had been granted on behalf of the Duck Commander crew and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a nonprofit organization that seeks to grant wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening diseases.
When Kerley entered her room on Thursday, she was greeted by a recording from Martin, one of the cast members on the reality show who works in the Duck Commander warehouse. "Hey Zoe, on behalf of the whole Duck Commander Crew, your wish has been granted. Congratulations!" the recording said, according to WSLS-TV. Additionally, the "Duck Dynasty" crew provided posters, decorations, and a signed "Duck Dynasty" hat for the young girl. more >>
