DARFUR HERO: Mary Rachel Fast-Till-Genocide-Stops

"I always believed if I were faced with the Holocaust in my lifetime, I would take a stand and try to stop it. Today, I am faced with the Genocide in Darfur and
I must stand. Although a small effort, this fast connects me to my family in Darfur and it may be the loudest way I can fight this atrocity."

"During the fast, I will be maintaining a caloric level similar to what is provided in the refugee camps aid workers can reach in Darfur and Chad (about 1000 calories."

God bless you, sister. He sees your efforts, and they are not without success. He see all of efforts.

I just pray we could attract enough people as they had at Jerico! Not a hand was struck, not a stone was thrown, but that wall came tumbling down.

May God bless Darfur with the same mercy.
