Hunger

FB_IMG_1440692202445.jpgThere are several different types of hunger. There is the hunger of the body, the hunger of the soul, the hunger of emotions, and the hunger of intellect. When children grow up hungry they do not develop correctly. My mission is to bring awareness of these type of hungers and the problems they cause when children are neglected and are hungry. Children that are hungry as a child become deficient adults and have a hard time becoming successful members of society.

Day 15 of Training

IMG_20180620_083959239_HDRIt’s been two weeks now and a lot has happened. Renegade is get in better shape and so am I. He has been reminded of his past training and has learned to hobble and has started picket training well. Jessie has come far from the boy that didn’t know much. He has learned to be saddled, has been mounted and moved around a bit. He also has started being picketed and hobble training. He has also been ground driven and has done good at figure eights. And stopping and standing.

The wagon is still in the midst of being built but will start training with the training wagon this weekend.

Do not look away

Isaiah 58:10 If you give some of your own food to [feed] those who are hungry and to satisfy [the needs of] those who are humble, then your light will rise in the dark, and your darkness will become as bright as the noonday sun.

Why not use our wealth to help someone that really needs it. God will often provide for people through us. Let’s all pray for more love and compassion for the needy.

Let’s think of different ways to bless the children of America. Let’s pray that God removes any stinginessthat’s lurking in our heart.

John 3:17-18 Now, suppose a person has enough to live on and notices another believer in need. How can God’s love be in that person if he doesn’t bother to help the other believer? Dear children, we must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words.

14. James 2:26  A body that doesn’t breathe is dead. In the same way faith that does nothing is dead.IMG_20180611_074858260

Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek

 

  • wp-1489240694140.jpg

Hi, I’m Angela, And this is my mission and my dream: Riding for Childhood Hunger Awareness. If you are interested in what Renegade, Cochise, Jessie and I are doing, please read on.
But what exactly are we doing, you’re no doubt wondering? I will be traveling alone with my horses and wagon. 8000+ miles, from the East coast to the West coast and back, on a continuous ride.
There are several different types of hunger. There is the hunger of the body, the hunger of the soul, the hunger of emotions, and the hunger of intellect. When children grow up hungry they do not develop correctly. My mission is to bring awareness of these type of hungers and the problems they cause when children are neglected and are hungry. Children that are hungry as a child become deficient adults and have a hard time becoming successful members of society.

I’ll be starting in July of 2018 and approximately ending in July 2020.

My mission is to bring awareness by stopping at Food Banks and talking to the media online and news papers, and if all goes well to the Television networks, local and national.

My Dream

I know some of you are wondering why. Why do this type of trip? Why the length? Well my desire to do this Trek was started when I was 11 and read about the Abernathy brothers. But even before that I was always looking and wondering what was over the next hill, beyond the next curve of the road. I was always exploring trails less traveled to find out where they went. I am a tractor trailer driver, a trucker. I’ve drove all 48 eight states and Canada. But all I’ve seen was the main roads, I’ve drove by national parks, through wilderness areas , by historical signs. Yet could never stop and actually see the places where history was made. I want to travel at a pace where I can take roads less traveled. Talk to people who I would never see if I was traveling at the modern pace in a car. I want to hear peoples stories of their lives and their ancestors. I want to inspire people to follow their dreams no matter how hard or crazy they seem. I want to bring awareness of Childhood Hunger in America and that one person can make a difference.

Thank you and hope to see you on the road.

Testing yourself

I’ve always thought—tests are a gift. And great tests are a great gift. To fail the test is a misfortune. But to refuse the test is to refuse the gift, and something worse, more irrevocable, than misfortune. “If you think it’s really wrong to take the test, that’s one thing. Maybe that’s the test. But if it’s only fear of failure—you have not the right to refuse.

I believe I’m being handed a great gift with my Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek. This will change me, change my Awareness of myself, of my life and the world around me. I wonder what I’ll be when I get back.Ca4aC8vUcAEZ4ZF

Count down

As I wait for my time to begin, I wonder do I have the courage to follow where I’m being led. I wonder if I’m crazy to believe that this Trek is what I’m being told to do, that I ‘one person’ can make a difference. Dreams are hard to follow because they are that, just dreams. I have to trust in my mission and my dreams and take that jump off the cliff in to uncertainty. I have to trust that as I jump I’ll be caught and be guided in my mission. Children are our future, is our duty and privilege to have them given into our care. To have them go hungry because the politicians, the scared, and the selfish people say that they are not as important as money and power is wrong. I’m going to take that jump in two months to bring awareness of the Hungry Children in America. Join me in taking care of our children. No longer look away and say it’s not my problem, let the government take care of them or their parents who can’t seem to do it. It’s our job as Americans and children of God to take care of our children.

Health and Dreams

Health such a little word but its a show stopper. In the last couple of years a lot of my family has become ill, some have traveled up the stairs, at least I hope they have. But it has brought an awareness into my life that if I keep putting off my dreams I might not be able one day to follow my dreams. Illness has no respect for age or dreams. So while this is my dream I’m also going to do for all those who could not follow their crazy dreams due to sudden illnesses or long term ones. Life is unpredictable don’t put off your dreams to long.received_10211856473661974

Beginning of the final countdown

3 months to the start of Chatrek. Challenging people to change their perception of hunger in American Children and the Elderly.

Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. We know that a peaceful world cannot exist one-third rich and two-thirds hungry. If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one. You pray for the hungry then you feed them.

Malnutrition in all its forms – from wasting to obesity – directly affects one in three people.

The Effects of Hunger on Children

Most people dislike feeling hunger and kids are no exception. The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines hunger as a physiological state of discomfort resulting from a chronic shortage of food intake. Hunger has been linked to disease, pain, physical weakness, anxiety and death. With over 40 percent of households living below the poverty level in the United States, many children are affected by hunger. Approximately 13 million American children live with or are at risk of experiencing hunger. Because childhood represents such a critical period in human development, the long-term impact of hunger on children can be extremely detrimental.

Hunger Hits Physically

Good nutrition has a direct link to proper physical growth and development for kids. Children who experience chronic, unsatisfied hunger are at risk of not getting the appropriate intake of necessary vitamins and minerals to ensure reaching developmental milestones. A child might be shorter than average height and could be significantly underweight. Some kids succumb to common childhood diseases because hunger lowers immunity necessary for warding off illnesses. Kids suffering from hunger often have poorer overall physical health.

Cognitive Effects of Hunger

Your youngster’s cognitive development might suffer from hunger. Children experiencing chronic hunger could develop learning disabilities or other cognitive impairments. Many kids will have trouble focusing in an academic setting due to a lack of energy and motivation. A hungry child often has ongoing health issues, so he may have frequent school absences that also make it difficult to learn. Your hungry child might fall behind in grade levels.

Feeling Hungry Impacts Sociability

A child experiencing hunger might feel embarrassed and ashamed. These feelings of embarrassment could affect your child’s interaction with peers or your youngster could engage in negative interactions such as fighting or stealing. The youngster could be socially isolated due to academic struggles, so he may be older than classmates. A child who feels chronically hungry could show unusual signs of stress and anxiety.
