The MOM for October is Feeding Farmville!! Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the multitude of gifts that God surrounds us with every single day. Feeding Farmville was started in 2016 to help our neighbors grow closer to God through His unconditional love. We wanted to do that by delivering 500 meals to our neighbors on Thanksgiving day but we just didn't know how we could do it. But God did.
God brought friends and neighbors, businesses and churches together from across our community so that we had enough turkeys, potatoes, cranberries, pumpkin pies, cooks and drivers to feed 500 people. What we thought was impossible God made look kind of easy and we learned that nothing is impossible for God. What an important message for today when our world struggles with a pandemic that seems unstoppable. Nothing is impossible for God.
Over the years the numbers have grown. More than 500 volunteers and 77 different organizations came together last year to help their neighbors experience God's unconditional love. As a result we fed over 800 people. Nothing is impossible for God. In the midst of this pandemic this community project is even more important because more of our neighbors are lonely and struggling to make ends meet.
What a great opportunity to show the world that nothing is impossible for God! What a great opportunity to show our neighbors that God loves them and so do we! What a great opportunity to grow closer to God through His unconditional love! Will you join us this year?
