As some of you know, Jeremiah is doing a 30 day refugee diet. He started on November 1st, which puts him at the halfway point today. I just wanted to congratulate him and let him know how incredibly proud I am of him for his dedication and compassion. He never ceases to amaze and astound me with his pure heart. Thank you for being an inspiration to me and helping me be a better person just by who you are.
Here is a picture of what Jeremiah eats on a daily basis.

For most in the United States, November is a month to give thanks. On Thanksgiving Day, we gather at our homes and enjoy great food and the company of loved ones. Refugees in and from Darfur have been deprived of a home; many of their loved ones have been killed; and they lack enough of the basics, such as food and water. In solidarity with all of the displaced from Darfur, SGN teammate Jeremiah Forest will participate on a month-long fast, matching his diet to the ones of refugees we have recently visited in the desert. Miah will write daily journals and regularly upload pictures and video, sharing his experience.
