i love my church... i like that even though it's massive, it uses it's size to do huge things.

our current series is called 316, focusing on john 3:16.  the verse is all about how God loves us and what that should mean for our lives.  along with that, they're partnering with a group called lifeline ministries that focuses on feeding and bringing the word of Christ to poor and impoverished people groups throughout the world.

southland's goal was to feed 1,000,000 people.  1 person packs an average of 300 meals during the 2 hour time slot, and each meal feeds 6 people (3,1,6... coincidence?).  it's really cool because the meal of dehydrated vegetables, soy protein, chicken flavor w/vitamins and rice costs $.60 per bag...

last night, katie and i went with our girls from life group (plus our boys... and a few 1,000 other college students), and went to pack.

it was awesome and fun and such a rewarding experience to know that what we did last night is going to give meals to thousands of people.

our group total?  136,000 meals!
