What We Did During Lent 2/11/18

What my family did during Lent in Indonesia and Australia. 

· The Church will have a special project for that Lent. Example: there is a village that has no water source and people must walk miles to collect water. The money collected during Lent will go to that village to help them build a pipeline from the water source to the village. Every time we turn on the tap to wash our hands, to take a shower, to drink or flushing the toilet, we must donate money, example: 5 cents each time. 

· Every Wednesday and Friday starting with Ash Wednesday through Good Friday: No sugar or salt in our food and beverage, no meat, no fish and no snacks. 

· Give up something we like for the whole Lent season. The money saved from that action would be donated to a Church project. Example: the money saved from giving up chocolate during Lent would go the project. 

· No dining out unless in case of emergency and the money saved would go to the project.
