We definitely had a “loaves and fishes” experience serving Kids Bible Club, this evening. A few weeks ago, Marie, the KBC director, sent us child and participant counts, so we could plan for the proper number of people to serve. Since we wanted to be sure that we had enough food, Susan asked her to be sure that her counts were a little on the high side of normal attendance.
At one point, this evening, the K-1st grade class needed 16 more sandwiches, but we only had 8 left after sending food to the other classrooms. While I was cutting sandwiches in half, so the kids would at least get something to eat, left over sandwiches started coming in from the other rooms (1, 2 or 3 at a time). In the end, not only did we have enough to feed the children, but enough to feed the teacher and bus driver volunteers, too.
To date, ForeverFed has served over 300 meals. It’s amazing what the Lord can do, if we serve Him and get out of his way.
