All eight Willow Creek locations set out to achieve an ambitious goal of filling one million seed packs in one weekend from April 28–30. “At about 7 p.m. on Sunday, we hit our goal!” says Executive Pastor Heather Larson. “The room erupted with applause and excitement—and then the volunteers kept on packing, wanting to far surpass our goal.”
The seeds packed during Celebration of Hope are sent to our global partners in Africa. They provide sustainable food and income to families in need. Watch this short clip from Tomas, one of the recipients of seeds.
Please be praying as the seeds travel thousands of miles in the coming week. Pray that all the seeds would arrive to their final destination, and pray for those who will receive them. These seeds bring more than just food, they bring hope.
