Beans for Hungry Honduran Kids

The main food Hondurans eat.

Little red beans are the main staple source of protein in Honduras. Heavy rains this summer have destroyed the bean crops and caused a food crisis in Honduras. This really hurts the poor because the shortage has caused the price to go 5 times higher than they were last year, and there are some places where beans cannot be bought at all. Besides the poor being greatly effected, many of the children’s homes in Honduras are scrambling to try and come up with food to feed their kids.

But God is good, and it’s obvious that he still wants hungry people fed. Last week Marc Tindall, missionary from Honduras, was contacted and offered 94,000 lbs (2 containers) of red beans. The price of the beans is 80% less than the current price of Honduran red beans. Knowing there is a HUGE need and hungry people, Marc told the company to ship them … even before he had money to pay for them. Marc told me yesterday when he called, “God is good. He’ll see that the money comes in.”

The cost for shipping all these beans is $10k, but remember our amazing friends at Bread for a Hungry World who gave 25k to the dump fund this last May? They offered to match everything we give towards this. So the funds that need to be raised to feed all these people is now only $5000. I talked to Bobby Moore who heads up Bread for a Hungry World, and he said all we need to do to get matching funds is go to GIVEBREAD.ORG. On the donation page click the “Honduras” box and then write in the “comments” section “BEANS!” Then make your donation. By doing this,  he’ll know where your donation goes. They will match everything you give.

I’m going to try and get Bobby to give me updates throughout the weekend on how close we are to paying for the food to feed all these people. Last night at church, I was handed a check for $250 to help with this. If you need to give this way, you can. I’ll see that it gets to Bread for a Hungry World.

So can you help? You can help by doing two things today …

  1. Make a donation.
  2. Use Twitter, Facebook, Email, etc … to spread the word.

What do you say we get the money raised by Monday? Possible? We’ll find out.

Generous hands are blessed hands because they give bread to the poor. ~Proverbs 22:9

    as of 11:00 715 has been raised…

  3. Trey Morgan says:

    Updated total is coming in a few minutes…

  4. Marc Tindall says:

    Last I talked to Bobby, about noon TX time the total was over $3,000. Since the whole state has Ranger Feaver, no more news was released for the day. Maybe now that the Rangers are WS bound, everybody will want to donate $10 per TX run…..Just sayn’. What a blessing it is to see people helping “the least of these”

      Recovering from last night’s Ranger game. My voice is shot from yelling and my body is tired from standing. But now it’s back to raising money to feed those hungry Honduras kids. We’re up to $3620 of the $5000 needed. How about you Rangers fans donate $10 per run from last night’s game ($60)? Yankee fans … you can make the pain go away by making a donation too. :)

    As of Sunday afternoon $3900.
