Save the Date!!

Hello friends-

Please join me to meet …

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, founder of Mary’s Meals!  (He is coming to the Des Moines area from his home in Scotland.)

When:  6:30 pm, Tuesday, October 15th 2013

Where: St. Pius X Church on 66th and Douglas in Urbandale, Iowa (near Merle Hay Mall) - Mary and Martha Social Room - Please use south entrance doors

My friend, Ellen Miller’s son works for Mary’s Meals in Africa.  Magnus and the Mary's Meals team are grateful to Iowans, who have become such a big part of Mary's Meals mission. Mary’s Meals is now feeding 792,621children a day at their place of education at a global average cost of $16.80 per child for a FULL YEAR!  Magnus was invited to the Vatican this past June to talk with Pope Francis.

Please pass the word about this wonderful  man and his mission!  He was selected as one of CNN’s Top 10 HEROES in 2010.  Watch the video to find out more about  him.  Consider using email, Facebook, phone calls and your church bulletin to invite your family and friends to join Magnus and learn more about how Mary's Meals is Christ's hands and heart throughout the world.

Let me know if you are planning on attending!!
