Megachurch pastors and bestselling authors Kerry and Chris Shook are encouraging pastors around the country to schedule a “Be the Message Sunday,” in which church members will pack meals for people in ebola-stricken countries. The pastors of Woodlands Church in Houston are hoping to send 10 million meals to West Africa through the iniative.
Kerry Shook said, “As we watched the death toll continue to rise in West Africa, we asked ourselves, ‘What can we do to make a difference in the Ebola-affected areas? Ebola not only affects one’s health, but their entire life. Thousands affected by the virus are unable to work or provide food for themselves or their families. That is why Be the Message Sunday is so important. One of the most immediate ways individuals can help is by supplying much-needed food to those living in West Africa.”
Woodlands Church held a trial Be the Message Sunday in October and managed to pack over 280,000 meals.
“Just imagine how that number could be multiplied with churches across the U.S. participating in national Be the Message Sunday,” said Chris Shook.
The Shooks are now encouraging national participation with the project on Nov. 16. Churches can find resources to participate at the Be the Message Challenge website.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
