Thank you for standing with us.

 Yesterday was such a blessing to us.   In the morning I posted the need of $2500 for food deliveries that would be starting on Tuesday. But 11:00 pm the entire need was met.

I have to tell you, I really hate asking for help.  It is one of my least favorite things to do, but I have a voice, where as those we are helping do not.  You guys have made lessened the burden at this time, and brought such encouragement to our entire team .  They work hard to shop, organize and pack food hampers for hundreds of families every couple weeks as well as continuing to deal with individual emergencies as they arise.  What an incredible boost it is for them to know that the finances are there.. one less thing for them to worry about .   I am feeling a little out of place here when there is so much to do there, but at least we can keep the finances rolling. 
    Yesterdays food drive we actually raised an extra $600.   $200 of that has gone to bring food hampers to 19 front line workers at the hospital we sponsor, and the other $400 and what ever extra is donated in the next couple weeks  will be put towards the June first food hampers . again we will have a target of $2500 .  The majority of those we will target on that delivery
will be the seniors. I will share more about that need over the next couple weeks.  As well we will continue to provide flour and yeast for the 350 loaves of bread backed and given out every day.
  In a couple hours the team will be up and begin the task at hand , shopping and preparing hampers for Wednesday, and delivering needed supplies to a couple orphanages. 
Thank you all so much for you
