Our first annual i-Care Summit on the Local/Global Food Crisis was a huge success! We had speakers and guests fly in from all over the country, and also had several local Treasure Valley organizations represented. One participant captured this quote from Friday morning's speaker, Robyn O'Brian, who said,
"The food you eat acts as either poison or medicine to your body. This is the first time in history where our sons and daughters have a shorter life expectancy in this country than previous generations."
People left the Summit inspired, informed, and encouraged to continue in their passions for providing their families and local communities with fresh sustainable food. Pastor Tri Robinson encouraged the church to care about these issues as we continue to provide hope and compassion amidst poverty, for we have all have been commissioned by Jesus to feed the hungry. Tri was blessed to have such amazing speakers teach the topics with authority and was thankful that we had so many online viewers around the world. Will Frasier, filmmaker from the UK, was able to capture the whole Summit for his upcoming film as well, which will highlight evangelicals positive impact on environmental issues. So THANK YOU for your prayers and your attendance as we came together and sought out the heart of Jesus.
