When we serve, God uses us to show His love. The bonus is that we get blessed too! Our “Meet The Need Monday” blog tells a story every week of how our loving Father works through our efforts. And He surprises us sometimes by giving us a bonus glimpse of the big picture.
“We had a great time serving the Lord through Feed The Bay. My kids & I were happy to work in the truck sorting food and loading boxes for our second year. My cousins came along with us this year because they wanted to earn volunteer hours for their High School. They have never had any experience with church before, and this Sunday, they had the opportunity to not only attend church with our family, but also participate in Feed The Bay. It is amazing how The Lord used the volunteer hours to start speaking to their hearts. They both told me they had a great time. They also went on to say, originally they only signed up because of the hours, but they felt really good about what they were involved with and want to do it again next year. We continue to pray for their salvation, but in the meantime, a seed has been planted. I am thankful to all who organized Feed The Bay because not only are we ministering to those who receive the food, we also are ministering to those who may not know the Lord, but are willing to volunteer, shop, and be a part of an Awesome Event!” – Tracey, Riverview
