On Sunday, the church
celebrated the end of this year's Harvest of Talents with a special
worship service and the presentation of a check to Rick Jett, the
executive director of International Disaster Emergency Service.
Prior to the check
presentation, Carolyn Neal offered a few words.
"Over a billion people go
hungry, but tomorrow, that number will be less because of all the
faithful Harvest hearts and hands who honored I Peter 4:10 and shared
a measure of their time, talents and resources to partner with
International Disaster Emergency Service and the 30th Harvest of
Talents for World Hunger, raising $101,068.15 for hunger relief this
year," Neal said. "You gathered your thoughts to pray, your
family and friends, your coins, your talents, and your time to
volunteer, and helped to make a difference that will stretch around
the world in Jesus' name. On behalf of those who will receive
Harvest food (physically and spiritually), thank YOU, bless you!!!"
The check was presented to Jett by Patricia Snyder. Jett in
return presented "Servant's Towels" embroidered with the IDES logo and bearing the words
"Your faithful service has made
a world of difference" to Neal and Snyder.
The 2013 Harvest of Talents
brought in $101,068.15, bringing the 30-year total to $1,819,213.38.
This was a record year, after the previous high total of
$92,499.88 back in 2008.
