Serving Those In Need

Our Moms Group volunteered at Community Missions recently, a soup kitchen in Niagara Falls, NY.  Seven of us (including one of our Mom’s teenage daughters), prepared and served food to the city’s hungry on a frigid winter day.  The Mission’s regular staff was very welcoming and by the end of the morning we were all conversing and laughing together.  The few hours we were there was a gentle reminder of needed prayers for our brothers and sisters that find themselves in need of a meal, and the need for our time to support ministries like this.  We all left Community Missions feeling that it was a special time for us and that we’d like to do it again.

Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me...  

Matthew 25:34,35
