Poverty is a massive problem. Union, along with other churches, participates in the 10/10/10 program where in October (10th month) we spend 10 minutes considering poverty and encourage you to give 10 dollars for poverty relief. It seems that the magical number for Union is 37, not 10. 37 of you went with Lee-Ann and Brenna to the Philippines to experience graphic and extreme poverty while building two houses and working in a girls' home with close to 37 girls. Last Sunday during 10/10/10 offering, we raised over $37,000 for a food bank in HK. And Union's senior pastor is 37 (plus a few years.)
This week, Martin Thomas of Viva, will share the creative ways that Christians are networking together to as we follow Jesus "who came to preach good news to the poor."
Thank you for your compassion and generosity!
