No, that does not mean soap LOL! It is probably one of the funniest mistakes when learning Spanish, when you try to ask for some soap and use the word “sopa” instead….because “Sopa” actually means soup! Just imagine the stares when you ask “I need to wash my hands, do you have any soup I can use?” Hahahaha! 🙂
At Club Esperanza we have an amazing feeding program that feeds nearly 300 people from preschool to the elderly every single day twice a day. (Thank you Orphan Network and Lacrosse the Nations for being incredible consistent partners!)
This past week I happened to be there when we were serving “Sopa”! Look at that soup! This is what I mean by amazing, it isn’t just rice and beans with some water that we serve every day…it is chunks of meat and huge vegetables. A full healthy meal that will allow our kids to grow big and strong in a way that will help them to have a chance to be successful in life, Amen!
Keeping this kitchen running and clean takes a lot of effort and man power. It also requires our constant attention and the need to make improvements. Check out our most recent improvement….splash subway tile throughout the entire kitchen! This is gonna keep things sanitary and SO MUCH EASIER to clean! Praise Jesus!
There are other improvements we would like to make. We need more storage space, so some Cabinetry will be essential. Also the refrigerator is in the spot that is actually designed for a stove with an oven. Out of the picture is a wash area and we need a new wash basin and shelving to make that area work perfectly for our awesome staff. And coming this Christmas break we will need a new paint job. Please pray for those needs and email us if you would like more info firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep praying for all the children who are growing up with us at Club Esperanza. Jesus told his disciples “you give them something to eat” when they had nothing to give. They obeyed and ended up feeding five thousand. (The Gospel of Mark Chapter 6) We don’t feed five thousand but we see the the Lord’s miracles every day that we are able to serve a meal. We stay obedient to His calling at Club Esperanza and the Lord always provides! Amen.
