several other locations in Africa.
We at Christ Embassy Alakija, Lagos will be
having a FOOD DRIVE on Sunday April 28, 2013. We'll be sponsoring meals for
InnerCity children and we are giving everyone an opportunity to be a part of
this worthy cause. Remember, *every child is your child.
If everyone decided to forfeit one meal
(breakfast, lunch, or dinner), or make a kind donation between today and Sunday April 28th, to feed at
least one child other than your own child/children, we are sure that we can
support this cause significantly. We are accepting CASH and RAW FOOD STUFF donations. God
bless you as you make a difference in your world.
