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.

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.
