English Patient: 30-Hour Famine

Setting: Recently, our Gracepoint Berkeley did a 30-Hour Famine, which is an international movement to fight hunger. The idea is to fast (not eat) for 30 hours and raise funds through sponsorship, and then to donate that money to feed the hungry in 3rd world countries. Acts2fellowship went door-to-door to ask for donations, and a particular Brother J went to this first door and said the following:

"Hi, we are fasting for 30 days... to help feed children from other worlds."

Good job on gathering donations for 30-hour famine! We topped last year's amazing total!

It's probably possible to fast for 30 days, but I don't think we'll be able to help feed children from other worlds.

"I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen."

Wow. Brother J taking a controversial interpretation of these words from John 10:16. I'm sure it's always possible that there are aliens from other worlds - but I'm not sure our funds would help them eat. Or if they even eat.
