The SAM Ministries Annual banquet, usually held during the month of May in Edmonton, Canada, provides an opportunity for those interested in SAM to meet each other, enjoy a good time of fellowship together, and hear the latest reports and updates from the fields. If you would like to attend the next banquet and need details, please contact us.
Global Care-A-Thon Walk
Through this effort, over 300 children are fed each day in rural Mozambique. Many of these children, who would otherwise suffer severe malnutrition, enjoy a balanced meal each day with the added benefit of attending school.In this event, participants raise funds through their network of friends, neighbors and relatives, who sponsor them to take a 6 km walk.
This walk is held annually in June in the small community of Heimdahl, Alberta (40 km southeast of Edmonton), Canada. Signs are posted along the route with scripture verses that remind the walkers of the purpose for their dedication, such as, “I was hungry and you fed me.” A police vehicle patrols the highway to ensure safety for the walkers, and those who are unable to complete the walk are offered rides from other volunteers.
The walk celebrates new participants every year, but has a solid core group who has faithfully walked in every event. Walkers range in age and athletic ability from very young children walking with their parents to seniors with walking canes whose pace is slower. Regardless of the participant’s age or possible physical challenge, these walkers know that their efforts each year continue to make feeding programs for hungry children overseas a reality.
For details on how you can participate in either of these events, please contact SAM Ministries’ main office.
The 2013 Global Care-A-Thon Walk will take place on June 15th. The walk will begin at 8:30-9:00 a.m., program at 10:30 a.m. followed by lunch for walkers and supporters at 12:00 noon.
