For the last three years, Kids Around the World has partnered with a church out in Pennsylvania, Calvary Chapel Chester Springs, to pack meals for a mutual partner of ours in eSwatini called Adventure in Missions. The event brought out close to 1,200 people to pack 270k meals, that’s a full shipping container of meals!
This was the first year the event was held inside and it was to much surprise to a lot of the people in the congregation. They entered the church sanctuary to find it had been emptied and replaced with packing stations. Instead of the typical service, the church would be worshiping by packing meals together and serving others. It was wonderful to see the church come together and workship in a different way.
Adventure in Missions has three care points for children in the area to receive meals from. Calvary Chapel visits these care points once a year to connect with the partner and build relationships with the children and community they are packing meals for.
