Efforts to raise money for ELCA World Hunger continue after the ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans. At the "Jesus Justice Jazz" gathering in July, youth contributed $154,488. Now a "JJJ Music Tour" extends the challenge, trying to raise $50,000 more. The tour features gathering artists Agape (David Scherer), Rachel Kurtz, and Lost and Found. In seven of 16 stops the tour raised an estimated $20,357.
