Maybe you guys have noticed my Facebook updates this past weekend about going and picking up trash and handing out food. Well, here you go, a more detailed look at it.
This took place in different churches all throughout Nashville. We unloaded corn, green beans, pumpkin pies, a ten pound turkey, cranberry sauce, apples, rolls, and a Bible. We made and taped the boxes, put all the food in them. 176 meals, put together and organized in 30 minutes(Just at one location). All together we fed over 4,000 people.
You always see commericals on T.V. "For just 9 cents a day you can give a child a meal for a month." And there is NOTHING wrong with giving to that. It just takes it to another level when you get to see the people. When you get to pray with them, and hug them. As I sat a box of Thankgiving dinner in the back of a car, a little girl, probably about 4 or 5 years old, looked at the box. She leaned up to the front seat and looked at her mom. "So, we get to have Thankgiving this year momma?"
It took everything I had to keep from crying.
Just loving on these people. These women, men, and children... To show Jesus to these people; is definitely something I will NEVER forget.
Fedding over 4,000 people isn't something that we could do by ourselves. The ONLY wayit happened was because GOD helped. I believe that with all my heart, God blessed everyone who helped, planning it doing it, eating it. ALL OF IT WAS IN GOD'S HANDS.
