"I WAS HUNGRY AND YOU GAVE ME SOMETHING TO EAT"

This morning I got up and thought, “What will I eat today?” There are many in the world that woke up this morning and instead of asking, “What will I eat today,” they simply asked, “Will I eat today!”

Welcome to Santa Ana, Honduras. A place so poor that people live in shelters made of sticks and garbage bags at the city dump so they can find scraps of food to eat. One person witnessing this for the first time said, “I gotta tell you that I wasn’t prepared for this experience. The smell was what you would expect only stronger.” Another said, “These people were filthy and smelly. Some of their hands had so much black filth on them that I cannot imagine them ever being clean again, no matter how much scrubbing was done. Small boys, about 8 – 11 years old, were there alone with no family.”

If you have read my blog in the past month, you know I’ve asked that this Tuesday you consider making a donation to the “Dump Fund” to help feed the people who live and eat at the dump.  Although I haven’t officially asked for money yet, a few of you have already sent some. You guys are amazing. In fact, one person has contacted me and said they’d match dollar for dollar anything given over $2500 (up to $2500).  That means if we raise $5000, this very kind person will write us a check for $2500 to make our total $7500.  I’m praying that this happens.  This Tuesday I’ll give you all the details how you can give, and please understand that 100% of what you give will go to feed hungry people.  
HOW YOU CAN HELP:  
  • Make a donation.
  • If you have a blog or a website, promote or link this on Tuesday.
  • Ask your Bible class/church/work place to help.
  • Pray for this work.
Jesus said, “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…?”  And when the people asked, “Jesus when did we see you hungry…” Jesus said, “Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me.”  Read more about what Jesus said about feeding the hungry … here!

How about you? Are you willing to share? Did you know as little as $20 will feed the people at the dump for a day? Twenty dollars!!! That means you can give up cokes or expensive coffee for a week and with that money feed all the people in the Santa Ana, Honduras dump for a day. 

Stop back by on Tuesday and we’ll spend the day raising money for the “Dump Fund.”  Plus I’ve got some giveaways I’ve love to give you.  

Blessings …

    Wow – the folks doing this kind of ministry are literally putting themselves in harms way with this swine flu epidemic. Thanks for sharing.

    $20 is a little light. We usually spend about $100 for a day. That buys enough food for 300+ sandwiches, 100 lbs of bananas, and 10 gallons of water. We pack and bag the sandwiches in my house and use plastic cups for the water. Water is so appreciated. Especially now in the dry season. We also share bibles with people that ask for them. Two weeks ago, there was a man that asked for 10 so that he could share Jesus with some of his friends. When I am back at the dump next, I will have the 10 bibles and hope to meet some of the people hungry for Jesus. God bless you for helping us with this work. It is very humbling to see so many that are interested in feeding the least of these.

    In early April, I was blessed to be a part of a 24 member mission team from Atlanta that was able to participate and witness firsthand the feeding ministry to the people living in the dump outside of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Among our number were the two teens who first inspired the “Last Hope” ministry that many of us in our fellowship have been blessed to support this past year. The outreach is helping to feed both the physical and spiritual hunger of a desperate group of people. On Tuesday of this week, PLEASE support this work in prayer and, if possible, financially. I know you will be blessed and a blessing to the least of these. I can testify as one who has been blessed beyond measure because of my personal involvement in “Last Hope” and TORCH ministries.

    I was just thinking, what if you proposed that everyone go to their local dump and eat for the day, and take all the money from the food they would have eaten and give for the cause. Might just stop and give thanks for how blessed we are, and then realize how spoiled we are too.

    Mikes – Thanks for the link… I appreciate you helping to spread the word.

    Marc – I can’t remember where I got my figures, but I know I read that somewhere. I sure appreciate your ministry. We want to give so it can continue. Also, sorry I missed your call last week. :) I’ll try and catch you today (Monday).

    Sherry – I’ve heard good things about “Last Hope” missions. I’ve enjoyed watching your videos and reading of your trip to Honduras. Thanks for stopping by.

    Tucker – Wow, what a way to open our eyes!!!
