The Pocahontas County CROP WALK was a great success! God provided a pristinely perfect day, and approximately 90 people participated in the walk on Sunday, Sept. 21st, starting at Hope United Methodist Church. Walkers could choose to walk either a 1K, 3K, or 5K route. Churches from the county were well represented, and the Pocahontas County food pantries will receive 25% of the proceeds with the balance going to various projects both nation and world-wide. Thanks to the help of many, Crop Walk will not only donate food, but will fund various methods to teach growing food, support safe water projects, and help hygiene training. Total proceeds from the walk amounted to $4,400.
Some exuberant youth even carried buckets of water, to get a first-hand experience of what it would be like to have to walk a long distance simply to get water…. something we seldom even think about as we easily turn on our faucets to get a drink whenever we desire.

Thanks for literally being the feet of Jesus!
