On Dec. 31, 2003, the books were
closed on the most successful Harvest of Talents for World Hunger
in its history. The 20th annual Harvest of Talents proceeds,
totaling $75,534.34, have been forwarded to International Disaster
Emergency Service to fund several feeding programs in various
parts of the world during the coming year.
In a year with a poor economic
climate, there were many who said it could not be done. Through
the grace of God and the contributions of many, from this and
other communities, the Harvest was able to claim a victory on
behalf of the world's hungry people.

With deep humility and grateful
hearts, we express our love and appreciation to each and every
individual and/or business that contributed to the success of this
ministry of hope.
Our 20th anniversary theme was
"Building Bridges of Hope." We plan to continue building those
bridges as plans are launched for the 21st annual Harvest of
Talents for World Hunger to be held on October 23, 2004.

Harvest of Talents for World Hunger ministry team
