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.
GIDDINGS Serves every Sunday starting at 5:00pm at Giddings Food Pantry located at 190 North Harris, Giddings, TX 78942.
Kathy is 64, lives with her son, his girlfriend and her two children. “I couldn’t make it on my own,” Kathy explained, “I’m on disability and if it wasn’t for my son, I don’t know what I would do.” Kathy comes to Feed the Need Missions on Sunday nights in Giddings when they don’t have enough to eat at home. Kathy is not one of those faces we see each week at the site.
Feed the Need Missions helps to fill the gap for Kathy and her family when times are tough. “My son has a job, works full time, but by the time bills are paid there’s not much left over for us to buy groceries.” Lately, Kathy has been a regular at the site because the family is in one of those tight seasons. She walks to the site often with Shawna, the daughter of her son’s girlfriend, to get a meal; sometime two meals for the family. “It’s nice knowing I can always come here and get something to eat,” Kathy shared.
Kathy is not a believer, however it is evident the Lord is working during this tough time. We are praying for Kathy and her family to come to know the love, truth, and grace found in Jesus. We know God can do great things even with something as simple as a hamburger.
“I’ve been coming since the beginning,” Barbara says, with a smile on her face and joy in her eyes. At first glance you would not see the hurt Barbara is currently facing. Barbara is dealing with abandonment and going through a divorce.
Barbara joins us weekly in Giddings and has done so since April of 2014. She comes and updates us weekly with how life is going. The good and the bad, the ups and the downs. Barbara caught on quickly what Feed the Need Missions is all about.
She loves our burgers, but it isn’t just the hot meal she comes for. Feed the Need Missions is a place of hope and encouragement for Barbara. “I know when I have nothing to eat I can come here to eat and get the support and prayer I need. I try to make it each week for the time of prayer,” she explains.
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.
