Cornmeal Mush and a Toy Fast

 

Many Christians in South Sudan are very poor. One of their foods is somewhat like cornmeal mush. If you want to make something like their mush, mix ¾ cup of flour (or cornmeal) with 1 cup of milk. Boil 1 cup of water, and slowly add the flour mixture to it, stirring constantly as you reduce the heat to low.

Continue stirring, and add an additional ½ cup of flour or cornmeal. Stir until smooth and until the thick dough begins to stick together. Cool the dough. Pull off a lump of the dough, make a dent in it with your thumb, and use it to scoop up stews or sauces, then eat it.


Poor South Sudanese children have few toys. Visitors have seen children playing with a ball made from old, rolled-up socks, and a kite made from string and a piece of a trash bag.

For one day, try not playing with any toy or game that was bought at a store. Do not watch TV or use a computer for entertainment. Pray for poor children in South Sudan.
