Diving into '100 wells'

Youth (left) from five congregations in the Upstate New York Synod asked their pastors to walk the plank in April for the "100 Wells Challenge."

Gary Lester<BR><BR>Adam Miller-Stubbendick, pastor of Bethel Lutheran Church, Jamestown, N.Y., took the plunge — as did the runner-ups.

Youth nationwide hope the challenge will raise $250,000 (the amount needed to build 100 wells) for ELCA World Hunger water projects. The New York youth will combine the more than $700 they raised with the offerings of 30,000 others at the July 18-22 ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans.
