From now until the end of the year we will be sharing stories from each of our sites across Texas. Every site has the same mission: to feed people physically and spiritually. We see God using our volunteers and those that come to grow and build relationships with those in Christ. Here are just a few of the stories from our sites this past year.
SMITHVILLE serves every Sunday starting at 5:00pm at The Neighbor Place at Hart’s Chapel located at 206 Prima St, Smithville, TX 78957.
Bonny has been attending our Smithville site for two years. She’s a widow that has lived in Smithville most of her life. Having little income and not wanting to cook, Bonny began visiting our site frequently.
“I like the people here. Everyone is friendly and always wanting to help me,” she said. “Sometimes I get lonely at my house so I come out for food and conversations.”
Bonny has gone through several hardships in her life and is trying to rebuild her life again. She decided to use her talents and make bird houses to supplement her income. Feed the Need Missions was fortunate to purchased a few of Bonny’s original creations for our recent Gala auction.
Timothy has been living in Smithville with his parents for six months. He came to Feed the Need Missions to perform his community service. Timothy grew up going to church because he felt he had no choice. However, he never really understood his own faith. Recently that all changed.
Timothy was living a good life in Austin. He was a bartender and working in the construction field. A few bad choices later, everything changed instantly and he was placed behind bars. While serving out his jail time, God got a hold of Timothy’s heart and he started reading his Bible.
“Now that I am out and in a positive environment, you guys have helped me see a different outlook on life. Seeing people going through the same things that I went through burdens my heart,” he said. “Now I can give back and share my story to those that are going through the same thing I did.”
When you give to support our communities, people’s hearts and lives are being changed. With your help, Feed the Need Missions will continue to provide a hot meal and share the love and message of Christ to those in our communities each week.
