We have had a rough beginning to the year down here with our family. Battling Covid and the lingering affects have messed up our routine a good bit. There was nothing life threatening as so many of our friends and family have had to deal with, but it kept us from starting our year in February as we normally would. But praise Jesus, we have been getting back in to the groove of serving this week….so I wanted to share this awesome photograph!
I was at Club Esperanza this week as lunch was being prepared and noticed the wind blew the cover off the food. Wow! What may look like just a bucket of food to you is a HUGE feast! Tuesday was soup day….¡Sopa! We see with our eyes everyday the harsh affect of poverty, hungry children on every corner. So, when I saw the sopa come out it impacted me…there are over 300 kids today who will eat well…a big piece of meat, a chunk of yuka, a piece of corn, a chunk of butternut squash…it is amazing! I love that God has made this possible. At Club Esperanza we have made great efforts with our partners to make sure that the children and families we serve don’t receive scarcely at our feeding program. They are provided for and given the opportunity to grow and learn with a full stomach….amen amen amen!
Thank you for partnering with us! Thank you for donating! Thank you for praying!!!
God is soooo good and we hope this random picture of a big pot of ¡sopa! encourages you today!
When Jesus had finished a day of ministering to thousands of people, over five thousand people as told in the Gospel of Mark (Ch. 6) his disciples were in a real bind. It was evening and there were thousands of hungry people who didn’t have anything to eat…
…By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. “This is a remote place,” they said, “and it’s already very late. Send the people away so that they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and but themselves something to eat.”
But Jesus answered, “You give them something to eat”
Friends together we are seeing Jesus provide abundantly for hundreds of children every day. I know it is not feeding five thousand, but you can be so encouraged that this isn’t a one day thing…this is every day of every week of the year! Together, we are giving them something to eat….amen, so awesome!!!
We love doing this together with you….if you want to see the beautiful faces of all the children we serve click here to check out our Club Esperanza Facebook page…the sopa is a great picture, but the kids are way cuter! And get in contact with us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to come down and serve in person…we are looking forward to seeing friends down here again!
Love, Chris & Krista Farrington
