Darfur Fast for Life

We fast in solidarity with the hungry and starving in Darfur and for lasting peace in Sudan

Scout’s Journal – End of Fast

July 08, 2009 By: Admin Category: Survivor Cast

I drove 14 hours to Bloomington, Indiana on July 2nd. On July 3rd we focused all our attention on building a Sweating Lodge in which to circle and pray. It took all day, and held our focus to our cause. It rained on July 4th….It poured. It was the day of our Sweat. A circle of 8 women came together to pray. We had to build our fire in the rain, and then keep it going for 6 hours. It totally held my focus. Thus, hunger did not come. Just thirst. It reminded me totally of Vanuatu. It rained so much and we had to keep our fire going. It was cold and wet. Hunger was the least of our concerns. It was beautiful to be in the presence of women devoted to coming together though very tough circumstances in order to pray for others. I was so grateful that our fast would end. The people of Darfur have no choice. My our prayers reach all who can help stop this hunger and abuse. Bless the people of Darfur.
