A Great Way to Spend $1000

Over the past couple of months a few of you have been hitting the little “PayPal” button on this blog and making donations to Honduras. All the $10, $15 and $25 donations add up after a while. I asked Marc Tindall a couple of weeks before we went to Hondruas, “What special feeding can we do, because I have some donations to feed people?” He told me that we should consider buying a large amount of food at the market and then giving it away at a small village outside of town that’s very poor. He said we needed about $1000 to feed a village and I told him we’d cover it.

We went to the market and broke up into groups. Marc gave each group a certain food to purchase. One group would go out and buy carrots, another onions and another squash. We also got potatoes, oranges and other fruits and veggies.  As you can see from the picture above and below … they market is an amazing place to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.

Different fruits and vegetables (some we’ve never seen or tired) are everywhere.

Of course on our way to buy 300 lbs. of potatoes, we had to stop for some fresh pineapple.

For about a dollar, we were able to give a bunch of young boys a job to deliver the produce to the bus. These were two of our four bags of potatoes.

We began stacking the food up so we could form a line and start passing it out.

The line on the right side of the building is where ladies from the community began to line up to receive their food. For about an hour we handed out big bags of food, hugged and visited. It was a great day in a poor Honduran village because lot of people were fed for many days.

Everyone got carrots too.

When the food was all given out, we visited, played and then sang “Jesus Loves Me” together.

As the sun went down we loaded up and headed back to the place we were staying. It was an amazing feeling to know that for $1000 we were able to feed village of people … and all from little donations from many of you.  Thank you for supporting the feeding of hungry people.

It was a great way to spend $1000.

    This was such an amazing day! The market was so beautiful and the smiling faces of the people who received the food was even more beautiful. Singing Jesus loves me with kids wrapped around all of us was more than my heart could take in. God was huge!

  2. Thank you for the update. Beautiful pictures and description, even better job done.

    Great post Trey! We seem to be thinking of the same thing on the same day. I just posted my Nuevo Oriental photos last night. You definitely added a great perspective. I bet they are still enjoying those carrots! :)

    Ministry is all the more exciting when you can tell the difference you are making in people’s lives. Not always the case in located church ministry here in the states.

  6. Tucker says:

    Stories like these should inspire all of us to find the Nuevo community around us and do our part to be Jesus to those in our own backyard. Next week, our church will be taking Christmas to women and their families who are part of a battered womens shelter.

    Thanks Trey for giving us the stories to inspire us to be Jesus. May He always receive the glory for those we serve.
