Food Pantry Weekly, 15 April 2015

Greetings Foodies!

It was a light night, the lightest in fact since last September, but one filled with pathos. One lady slipped past us without prayers, then came back. I recognized her as having been there earlier, and I said “You’re back!”  She said that she needed prayers and told me of her financial situation. I remembered her from a few months back. She holds a masters degree, had a home and a good career. But in December she lost her job and has not been able to find another. In these four months she has exhausted her resources and is desperate. As we prayed, the tears flowed, and Jackie came and hugged and consoled her. It was beautiful, but painful.

Please pray for this child of God and for all our clients.
