Imagine yourself starving within an arm’s reach of an abundance of food. Now imagine spiritual starvation. A Reality 10/40 missions chapel illustrated the critical reality in the world that depicts the fact that 1/3 of the world has never had the opportunity to choose to eat the bread of life. Another third of the world’s population has heard about the bread of life but has chosen not to eat it. The final third of the world has or claims to already have the bread of life. Three actors represented these groups of people around the world.
Joel Fevig, characterized the people that are starving, but are never given any bread because the truth is never brought to them. Sheena Abraham depicted those that can have bread, but would rather have “a pizza” instead. Corey Wright, a guest actor, played the role of an overstuffed Christian that has all the bread he could imagine, but chose not to give to those who are starving. It was a great illustration to compel students to give until the entire world has an opportunity to eat the bread of life.
This statement still stands, “I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me…whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.” Matthew 25:42-45

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10:14-15
