Feed the Need Missions’ ministry is simply to feed people both physically and spiritually. We provide a hot meal on a weekly basis in communities across Texas. This weekly meal allows us to build long-lasting relationships and proclaim the love and message of Christ.

Scott from Bastrop South shared this, “The encouragement that I receive here has helped me grow socially. I am able to talk more about my personal struggles and about God to other people. I’ve had a problem with going to church since my mom has passed away and you guys have helped fill me spiritually.”

Feed the Need Missions depends on our volunteers. Without our dedicated team of volunteers, we would not be able to serve our communities like we do. Debbie from Giddings said, “We get more out of Feed the Need Missions than what we give in to the ministry.”

We need your help! Come make a difference in your community or surrounding area. Be a part of what God is doing through those that serve and those being served.

Check out what a few more of our volunteers and those we serve have said about Feed the Need Missions:

“I’ve never had anyone ask me if they could take my picture,” Jimmy said in tears. “I’ve been coming around here since you started behind the Lumberyard years ago, and now I live on this side of town so I come here on Sunday’s.”– Jimmy from Bastrop North

“We needed something more,” he said “I didn’t realize that I was stuck in the social poverty aspect of my life and my family as well.” – Justin from Smithville

“The encouragement that I receive here has helped me grow socially. I am able to talk more about my personal struggles and about God to other people. I’ve had a problem with going to church since my mom has passed away and you guys have helped fill me spiritually,” – Scott from Bastrop South

“We want to be the church and to love people where they are,” – Jack from LBA

“I’m plugged in now. I come here and do Table Talk to our guests. I translate it to them in Spanish for them to understand the gospel. It feels great to help out, and share God’s love, and it’s also helping me grow,” – Nat from Stony Point

“Feed the Need Missions is about the relationships and sharing the gospel. It’s not about the numbers it’s about a personal connection with them and Jesus Christ,” – Josh from Justin

“I love being able to serve in the ministry. We can’t all go on mission trips due to funds and vacation time, instead me and my family can serve here,“ – Nick from Newark

Come out to one of our communities and be a part of the great work the Lord is doing!

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.

LBA serves every Thursday starting at 5:00pm at Trinity Riverchase Mobile Home Park located at 135 Navasota Drive, Bastrop, Texas 78602.

LBA (Lake Bastrop Acres) is our newest site in the Bastrop area. This site has only been on the ground for a few months. Feed the Need Missions has prayed for a site in this area for a few years. Our prayers were answered and a local Pastor from Ridgeway Baptist Church, Jack Gilmore, saw the need and has been serving as the Site Coordinator.

A month ago the trailer that is used for this site was dismantled and had most of the contents taken out of it. This trailer is used multiple times per week in order to setup and cook meals in communities all over Central Texas. Without a trailer it’s hard to serve so we thought..

Even though we didn’t have a trailer we still served the community! The enemy wanted to hold us back, but our team pressed on. Those who served at LBA came together with materials, grills, tables and all that was needed to simply cook a hot meal for the community. Not to mention during this time of chaos, two people came to faith and accepted Christ at the LBA site. Once again, God has put together all the pieces to expand our ministry where it is most needed.

 

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.

Can you help Feed the Need Missions continue serving each week by making a generous contribution of $25, $50, or $100 today? Without your generosity, the people in the LBA community might not get to hear about the love of the gospel and what it truly means to have people who love and support you where you are.

Don’t delay, give now and make a difference in your community today.

STONY POINTserves every Monday starting at 5:30pm at Stony Point Park located at 121 Stony Creek Drive, De Valle. TX 78617.

David

David is married to his lovely bride for 42 years and have two kids and thirteen grandkids, not to mention four great-grandchildren too. “A few years ago I started serving with Rebecca. I had to stop serving because I was not in a good spot in my own life. I struggled with who I was and I didn’t have the capacity to pour into others the way I needed too,” David said.

Currently things have changed in David’s life. He attended a training at his Church and decided he was ready to start serving again. “I really enjoy seeing the faces of those we serve and to share Gods word with them. I’m an act of service kind of person by nature and like to help people. I enjoy serving others,” he said.

“By serving I have been able to open up more and come out of my shell. I use to be a recluse person and it’s helped me do a full 180. It’s opened my eyes to learn about others and to share stories. It has also helped me open my eyes to the Holy Spirit and my walk with Christ,” David said.

Nat

“My wife heard about a school over here in Stony Point that was hiring. She came and drove around the area and saw you guys out here serving. She knew I have a servant heart and this would be something I would be interested in, that was one year ago,” Nat said.

Nat wrestled with his work schedule and being involved with his church. He had a hard time finding the time to serve with Feed the Need Missions. “You guys came to my church and did a training and I participated. I fell in love with the ministry. This is God’s work,” he said. A week or so after the training his relative, Charlie, who serves at the Bastrop location, told Nat he was needed in Stony Point. Soon after Nat came to the site.

“I’m plugged in now. I come here and do Table Talk with our guests. I translate it to them in Spanish to help them understand the gospel. It feels great to help out, and share God’s love, and it’s also helping me grow,” he said with a big smile.

BASTROP NORTH serves every Sunday starting at 5:00pm by the Apartments on Linden located at 603 Linden Street, Bastrop, TX 78602.

Sherry

Sherry has been living in the Bastrop area for the last 4 years, and has been attending the Bastrop North site since last winter. When Sherry first came to the site she was very hesitant and thought “it’s a group of people cooking food.” Week after week of being there she was able to make friends and understand what Feed the Need Missions is. “You guys have shown me so much support and motivation to continue my life,” she said.

Now that she knows what Feed the Need Missions is all about she said, “it’s more than putting food in our bellies, it’s physical feeding and spiritual feeding. I know on Sunday’s I can come here and be ok. I stay for Table Talk and learn more about God and learning how to pray again,” she said excitedly. “My walk with Christ has flourished and grown since I’ve been coming here.”

Jimmy

“I’ve never had anyone ask me if they could take my picture,” Jimmy said in tears. “I’ve been coming around here since you started behind the Lumberyard years ago, and now I live on this side of town so I come here on Sundays.”

Jimmy struggles with addiction and life. He’s currently separated from his wife and really wants to change and get back on his feet to save his marriage. “I’m trying I really am. You guys have been here for me. You pray with me and make me feel good,” he said. “I know I can come here for encouragement and to help me understand the Bible. It’s such a great place to come to when your needing someone to talk to and need help,” he said.

“I’m growing with God, and I do believe one day my wife and I will get back together once I clean myself up,” he added.

GIDDINGS serves every Sunday starting at 5:00pm at Giddings Food Pantry located at 190 North Harris, Giddings, TX 78942.

Lewis & Debbie

Lewis and Debbie have been married for 46 years. They have two biological children and two adopted. They heard about Feed the Need Mission through Ridgeway Baptist Church where they are currently attending. “Part of our gifting from God has been hospitality, it’s almost like a natural instinct for us to help,” Debbie said. “When we heard about the ministry and the weekly feeding of feeding people both physically and spiritually, we both looked at each other and this is what we’ve been waiting for. For a ministry where we can help other people outside of church.”

Being together for over 50 years they love that they can serve together and grow together. “We get more out of Feed the Need Missions than what we give in to the ministry,” she said with tears in her eyes. They are in love with the ministry and enjoy sharing their past stories to help others in their own situations.

“I just can’t explain how it makes us feel, it’s God’s glow” they said with excitement. “Being able to talk about Jesus and meeting a physical need changes people. We have grown so much together as a couple. It’s a great reminder of being united. First with God, then our marriage, and now together we can minister to those in need.”

SMITHVILLE serves every Sunday starting at 5:00pm at The Neighbor Place at Hart’s Chapel located at 206 Prima Street, Smithville, TX 78957.

Justin

Justin and his family were looking for more community. They heard about Feed the Need Missions at a meeting held at Calvary Baptist Church where his friend Tim attends and is currently the Smithville site coordinator. “We needed something more,” he said “I didn’t realize that I was stuck in the social poverty aspect of my life and my family as well.”

“When I told my children we were going to go and serve, they didn’t want to come. They grumbled back and that’s when I knew as a father and Christ follower I was not raising my kids up the way I needed to,” he said. “Not only that I wanted them to experience what it was like to serve others,” he said. It’s important to teach your children to serve others, and now Justin has the freedom of doing so.

“We as a family have grown so much. Having our social poverty being fulfilled through Feed the Need Mission has allowed us to open our eyes and to see a different way of life,” he said in closing.

Casey

“Man, I have been coming to this place for a few years now,” Casey said. “I love coming here. All you people are so nice and help me when I need extra help,” she said with a smile. Casey lives in Smithville with her mom and has struggled with addiction since her teen years. Regardless of her struggles our volunteers still meet her where she’s at.

“I know God, and I like watching the videos you play. I like to learn about Him. It’s hard for me to go to church because I am different. So this is my church and family,” she said with tears. “I can’t explain the feeling I have when I’m here. I think it’s peace from God. I come here for food, prayer and to get away from home. It’s safe here and I can always come talk to you guys,” Casey said.

Casey is still learning how to walk with Christ, as we walk alongside of her meeting her social, physical and spiritual needs. We continue to pray for her addiction and that one day she will have a break through, like many of those we have served and are currently serving.

BASTROP SOUTH serves every Monday starting at 5:00pm at Primera Baptist Church located at 301 Paul C Bell St, Bastrop, TX 78602.

Scott

“I have lived in Texas my entire life. I’ve lived in Bastrop for 33 yrs and I have never seen anything like Feed the Need Missions before,” he said. Scott lives with his son and has been attending the site for 7 years. During the 7 years he’s been coming he went through some very challenging times, “my parents house burned down in 2011, a few years later they passed away, my wife also had left me and we divorced, my son had gotten very sick and I almost died from diabetic coma, and you guys were always there to listen and to pray for me,” he said.

When asked how Feed the Need Missions has helped him he replied, “it’s helped me from running out of food. I am able to stretch our food to make it week by week.”

“The encouragement that I receive here has helped me grow socially. I am able to talk more about my personal struggles and about God to other people. I’ve had a problem with going to church since my mom has passed away and you guys have helped fill me spiritually,” Scott said.

Sandra

“I have been through so much and I know where to come for prayer, right here” Sandra said with tears in her eyes. Sandra has been fighting cancer for over a year and just started radiation. Her outlook on life is always positive and she brings so much joy when she comes. “When I am here the presence of God is here, I can feel it,” she said.

She has lived in Bastrop for many years with her husband who currently works, but with medical bills and hardship she can’t always get a good meal. “I love the burgers even when I’m not feeling good, I still love them,” she said giggling.

“I can’t imagine my life without you guys. I have been coming here for years and every time I am here you welcome me with open arms. Today I wanted to come to give everyone a hug to let them know how much they are appreciated, just like the appreciation and encouragement you give me. I have grown so much in my faith and I truly believe I am healed from cancer. Maybe not on earth but I will be in heaven,” she said crying. “Thank you for everything you have done for me,” she added.

We’re excited to announce the start of a new location at LBA in Bastrop, Texas. This site has been on our heart to start for a number of years, as it encompasses an area that has great needs. Lake Bastrop Acres is located in Bastrop, Texas.

This site will be serving Thursday evenings from 5-6 pm at the Trinity Riverchase Mobile Home Park located at 135 Navasota Drive, Bastrop Texas. We are very thankful for the Mobile Home Park in welcoming Feed the Need Missions to their community.

After lots of prayer and God leading the right people to serve and cultivate relationships, the ground is fertile and the community is ready to receive us. Come serve with us!

Donna has been serving with Feed the Need Missions over the past few months when she’s in Bastrop. She has attended the last two Galas and this year will be attending her third. “My mom has brought me back to Bastrop because of her health. I went for the training and when I’m in Bastrop I come to serve and participate,” she said. “I currently live in Florida. My husband is involved serving and I wanted something more to do while I’m here in Bastrop.”

With a joyful heart Donna shared this “I’m starting to build relationships little by little. I had the impression there wasn’t as many homeless in Bastrop. I am learning more about people that I wouldn’t usually talk to. You guys are meeting more than just a physical need. Your helping with social, and emotional needs as well. I am grateful to be here with my new friends. It brings me a lot of joy.”

We are so excited to announce some great news! Rebecca (Barker) Bishop and her husband Chance are the new site coordinators at the Bastrop North location on Linden Street. Feed the Need Missions is honored to have Rebecca back as a lead volunteer. Rebecca previously served as a site coordinator at our Bastrop South location.

“I love the sense of community that develops after having been an operational site for awhile. You start to see change in the neighborhood itself and relationships forming between people who might not naturally be friends,” Rebecca said. We look forward to seeing how God is going to use Rebecca and Chance!

Stop by and say hello to Rebecca and Chance! They would love to see your friendly smile, and put you to work, or enjoy a burger with you. The Bastrop North site meets on Sunday evenings at 5pm. Set up begins at 4pm. You can find Feed the Need Bastrop North located off of Linden Street in downtown Bastrop at 603 Linden Street. We hope to see you there!
