Helping without Hurting

Food for the Hungry works with families to leverage their assets, no matter how small, to better their lives. We saw an example of this at the home of Christian, Jennifer Ward's sponsored child.  Their home is typical for the neighborhood,  with one exception, the yard is a little larger than most.  So, an FH agronomist worked with the family to convert the space into a vegetable garden! The vegetables they grow, and sell in the market, pay the family's rent each month. This is a great example of helping without hurting; using our God given talents and assets to improve. The team worked with the family in their garden Saturday.

MCC is gearing up for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox drive! The mission of OCC is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Last year MCC collected 230 shoe boxes to be gifted to children around the world! Boxes will be available this Sunday, October 21st, in the foyer and the final drop-off date is November 11th! It is a great time to start gathering items to bless children around the world!

Shine also has a unique food pantry at A. Montoya! Kids often go to bed without dinner, come to school too late for breakfast, and aren't sure if there will be dinner that night.  We have been asked to create a small food pantry at the school that would contain items like tuna packets, apples, macaroni and cheese, Ensure or Boost, peanut butter crackers, nuts, and the like.  The children could keep these items in their backpacks so that they would always have  something to keep them going.  We are working on putting together a list of items, including gluten-free ones, that we would like to stock the pantry with.  Please pray about whether you would like to donate items or money to help keep the pantry stocked year-round!
