Would you miss a meal?
It's simple: 1. Skip your meal, 2. Take a pic of you with your empty plate, tag with # forthemission and post on twitter, fb, instagram. 3. Then donate the $10 you would have spent on a meal (per person) to global missions through IMB. You can do that by texting 4mission to 80888* or giving online at imb.org/meal.....It's easy!
Want to enlist others? Here are some more ways you can help get the good news across the oceans.
–Enlist your small group to take the Miss a Meal challenge. Instead of offering refreshments at your next gathering, power up your laptop and let people donate on site.
–Utilize the Miss a Meal campaign as a family missions moment. Pull out a globe or use this fantastic map online at http://www.imb.org/women/liveit.asp to introduce your kids to God’s heart for the nations. Ask your kids if they would be willing to forgo lunch (or a snack if your children are younger). If your children are too young to skip a meal, you can still donate as a family.
–Get your women’s ministries involved by issuing a church-wide challenge
The Miss a Meal campaign is an easy global mission project that encourages
missional living and missions awareness with absolutely ZERO set up! As the
leader, set a goal for the total number of meals missed and a projected completion date.
Issue the challenge and see how many donations you can collect! Be sure to retweet and share
your church members photos on your church’s social media sites to snowball your efforts.
Ready? Set! Go Miss a Meal
