The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is inviting everyone in California to participate in a special fast on Sunday to ask for divine intervention in the current drought emergency.
"Throughout history faithful people have held special fasts to ask God for help in times of drought, famine and other difficult times. We invite everyone to participate in this fast" said local Mormon Bishop Michael Wagner.
The special fast for drought relief is encouraged as part of the church's regular monthly fast day. Members of the LDS Church regularly fast for two meals once a month and donate the money they would have spent on those meals to a fund for those in need.
A fast and testimony meeting will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel on the corner of Trower Avenue and Dry Creek Road on Sunday at 9 a.m. Everyone is invited.
