Dylan is the Famine


Meet Dylan. Serving the poor is #1 on his list of things to do.

Dylan was another lucky traveler on the 2010 Study Tour to Bolivia, where he realized the impact his Famine funds are making on people around the world. His experiences have grown his heart for the poor, and eventually he sees himself serving overseas. See what Dylan had to say about his Famine experience.

During the 30 Hour Famine, I felt… inspired and confident that I can do more to help change the world.

The most difficult hour of the Famine was… definitely the first 12 hours. That’s when you are so used to just walking into your kitchen and grabbing a bite to eat!

I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world when… I learned how many people, especially kids, were out there suffering while we are living life with all of our basic needs easily being met.

I broke the fast for 30 Hour Famine by… taking communion and thanking God for the amazing gifts we all take for granted daily.

If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to… Katito, Kenya. That is where my sponsor child lives, and I would love to meet him after all these years.

My favorite way to make a positive impact is… showing people how much God’s love can change a person inside and out.

My advice to someone thinking about doing the Famine is… raise as much money as you possibly can. Every dollar you raise will help transform kids’ lives. Give it all you have and take the most you can out of it. Then sign up for the study tour!!
