WOW! We had an incredible end to 2016 with our Thanksgiving & Christmas feeding outreaches in New Orleans.
For Thanksgiving, we had 97 volunteers who blessed 158 homeless & needy friends on the streets of New Orleans with a traditional Thanksgiving Feast. God blessed us with such an abundance of food, the volunteers were even able to eat AND we were able to bless a local shelter with leftovers just in time for their dinner! We also passed out goody bags that contained hygiene products, knit hats & gloves, snacks & devotionals. We also passed out warm clothes.
Please take a close look at the Thanksgiving pictures below. There is a precious little 4 year old boy who was passing out the drinks at the end of the serving line. He would hold a water in one hand & a soft drink in the other & let his friends pick which they wanted. Nathaniel, the homeless guy who we have known now for 3 years, is looking down at little Ayden with such a sweet smile. This picture represents a true servants heart in such a child like little Ayden and a very grateful gentleman whose heart is warmed by this precious child who looks on him without judgment & with the Love of Jesus. What a picture of the love Jesus has for us!
