Operation Meal Time

I wrote a few days ago about a severe fire that destroyed many homes in a community known as Isle Verde. A few days ago, I had the opportunity to join with several other missionaries to prepare, bag and hand out lunches to the people of this community. I know it is not a lot, but it was something... we were able to help support a local pastor and his wife with their ministry. Pictures speak much louder than words... here are some from this recent ministry opportunity....
Ready to prepare food... knife, cutting board and rice pot :)

Chopping away!

Peeling garlic- yum!
The following pictures are from when we packaged the food the next morning........
Scooping noodles into bags

Tying bags that contain a complete meal
 After packing 200+ bags, we headed to Isle Verde to help distribute them. The host of our outreach took us up where we could view the area that had been destroyed. It is truly heartbreaking....
A week ago this area was filled with thousands of homes
Here are a few pictures of the people we ministered to.

It was a blessing to be able to serve these people, even if it was only handing them a meal. We are very blessed. Be thankful for what you have. Not everyone is blessed to have 3 full meals (and snacks, and clean water). Many of these people were thankful to be alive and to have survived the fire even though they lost all their belongings. One woman told us how she lost her child...
Take time to reflect on your many blessings....Just a thought. Pray for these people and thank the Lord for what He has graciously given you!
