A BANQUET AT A TRASH DUMP?


Do you remember when Jesus said this in Luke 14:12-13? “When you give a dinner or a banquet, don’t invite your friends and family and relatives and rich neighbors. If you do, they will invite you in return, and you will be paid back. When you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind.”

I’m excited that I’m going back to Honduras the second week in December for what is being called “The Jesus Banquet.” On December 9th, at the dump in Tegucigalpa Honduras, something very special is going to happen. People are going to be fed, but it will be different than the regular once-a-week feeding that is taking place. This time, instead of the dump people lining up at the back of a pickup to get a bowl of beans and rice, we are having a sit down banquet where they will be served. Having tables, chairs, silverware, napkins, a place to wash up and a bible as a gift are some of the plans for this banquet. Also instead of one small bowl of food, this time they will hear, “Would you like to have seconds… or thirds?” The plan is to show the people of the dump the same kind of OUTRAGEOUS love that God has shown us.

Someone recently asked, “Why go all out for people living in a dump?” The answer is simple … we offer our best to them because God offered His best to us … His son.

Wanna go with me?

    Marvelous!! December 9th is my birthday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than being able to contribute to this project. I’ll be watching for details. God bless you and all those involved in this work. It will be like being invited to the King’s table and it paints a beautiful picture in my mind.
