FEEDING THE DUMP PEOPLE ON May 5th

Two hungry Honduran boys at the city dump that are enjoying food and a drink!
  • MAY 5th WE ARE GOING TO “FEED THE DUMP PEOPLE”: About 5 months ago I did a post called “Feeding the Dump People.” It dealt with the people of Honduras who resort to finding food at the city dump for themselves and their families. With your help that one post raised around $1500 to feed the families at the dump. Absolutely every cent we raised went to feed hungry people. God has really placed it on my heart to do this again. My friend Terri Tendall, who is a missionary there and who regularly takes food to the dump, told me they always need funds to help with this. So on May 5th, we’re going to have a “Feed the Dump People” marathon on my blog and try to raise $2500 to feed hungry people. Why would we want to do this? Two reasons: 1) Jesus said this about us helping others, and 2) Because it breaks my heart that sometime today we are going to ask, “What do we want to eat today,” and the people people at the dump will ask, “Will we get to eat today?” I’m really excited about this project. I’m planning on having some giveaways, having a chat-room open that day to visit about pledges and other cool things that I’ll tell you about later. I’m really going to need some help on promoting this and I’ll tell you how next week. Don’t forget that May 5th is “Feed the Dump People” day.

  1. a husband says:

    That’s great news about the amount of money you raised last time. Best of luck to you with this next amount. I’ll tell who I can tell to help out.

    I was sad to see that you took my website off your blogroll. Am I dead to you, dear Trey Morgan? I certainly hope not.

    :o)

  2. TREY MORGAN says:

    a husband – you were there at one time. If you’re not there now, I’m not sure what happened. Somewhere in the updating it must have got taken off. It was not done deliveratly, and I’ll get it back on there. Sure wouldn’t want to think you were dead :)

    I saw the other day where you celebrated your blogs first anniversary. Congrats!

    You have a great marriage blog that definitely needs recommending. Besides, I’m sure you have me on your blogroll :)

    This “dump people” situation is international. Glad you are doing something about it, at least for the folks in Honduras. Check out what I had to say:

    I’m all over promoting this! The Hillcrest Youth Group will help for sure.

  5. Peter P says:

    You gave us a link to where we can find the gift of sex online…. tee hee hee.

    Seriously though, Dump people. All for it. Remind us a few days in advance (please!)

    Thanks Trey.

  6. LauraLee Shaw says:

    Okay, on #1: I’m in but put out a HUGE REMINDER like you did today. lol

    #2: One of these days, when I get the time…and my kids aren’t around.

    #3: LOTS of cool blogs on there. On a rainy day, or a non-taxi day, or a sick day, or a lazy day, I’ll come on over and check ’em out!

    I love Honduras and the people there. You can count on me!

  9. TREY MORGAN says:

    Lantz – thanks for the link … I’ll give it a look.

  10. Adam Gonnerman says:

    I’ve been mulling this over all day, and I’m going to do a build up to this on my blog and via Facebook and Twitter. Maybe the synchrobloggers can get involved somehow.

  11. TREY MORGAN says:

    Adam – this is REALLY something I’m hoping for … some bloggers giving this some publicity on their blog as this gets closer. Helping send some traffic. Thanks for your help. I hope others will do the same. :)

  12. Jason Browning says:

    Trey, I am definitely in. Remind us as it gets closer (I’m sure you will) and I will give May 5th some love on my blog as well.

  13. Jesterhawk says:

    Love your blog, by the way.

    Love in Christ,

  15. Robin Brannon says:

    You can count the Brannons in, too! We’ve been talking about wanting to give more. What a fantastic opportunity. Blessings!

  16. Katherine says:

    I love it-count me in!! What a great project for a great cause! Thanks for keeping us informed…

    Man, I give chopsticks and am not even on the roll-what does a girl have to do? 😉

  17. TREY MORGAN says:

    Jesterhawk – Thanks for the info on the links.

    Kat – Got you put on. I thought you were there. I am SO embarrassed :)

  18. cwinwc says:

    “”The Gift of Sex.” A few of you asked, “Where can I find it?””

    Now that’s my kind of church. :)

  19. kim says:

    praying for you lea! phil 4:6-8

  20. Shelley says:

    First off, I am a best bud of Jason and Amy Horton. Next I would like to say your “dump” ministry sounds great. We will pray for its success. In what part of Hondorus is it located? My husband, oldest daughter, and myself are traveling to Choluteca, Hondorus to paint a church, conduct a VBS, I am doing my first EVER ladies Bible class, and deliver meals. I am patiently awaiting the blessing God is going to grant me and my eyes to be opened on this trip! Shelley Hale

  21. TREY MORGAN says:

    Shelley – friends with the Hortons? You poor thing 😉

    The dump is just outside Ojojona, which is about a 30 minute drive from the capital. I’m excited about you guys going. I’m hoping to go soon to. I’d love to see the work that is going on first hand.

    Blessings,

    Trey
