At Feed the Need Missions, we believe that a burger is more than just a meal; it’s a tool to share the Gospel and spread love within our community. Our weekly cookouts serve not only hot meals but also spiritual nourishment to anyone who stops by. Today, we want to share a remarkable story from our Bastrop South Site – a story of transformation, faith, and the incredible love and care our volunteers show to one another and the guests we serve. This is the story of Annie, who has been a part of our journey for about the last year and a half.
One of the most heartwarming aspects of Feed the Need Missions is the way our volunteers rally around those in need. Annie’s story is a testament to this spirit of compassion and support. One aspect of our sites is not just the guests we serve, but also our volunteers. In this case, our volunteers have the opportunity to serve alongside a local women’s program, where ladies are working on recovery from addiction.
About six months ago, Annie completed the women’s program that she was in, graduating and recovering from her addictions. Upon completing this program, she has continued to come and serve on a weekly basis, continuing to grow her character and faith. Not only has she graduated, but she has also landed a job and is now helping to facilitate our Table Talk discussions.
As we continue our mission to serve both physically and spiritually, we are reminded that our work is not just about the food we provide but also the hope, love, and transformation we inspire. Annie’s journey reminds us that, with faith and support, anyone can overcome adversity and thrive. We invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of those we serve and spreading the message that a burger can be a powerful tool for sharing the Gospel and transforming lives.
