At one location there was a large group of kids playing outside. We called them over to our vans so we could give each of them a toy. To see their faces as they received a set of matchbox cars or a small nerf gun was delightful. It was pure joy in their eyes. Many even hesitated to get a toy because they had siblings and wanted them to receive gifts first. It made us, as a staff, realize how extremely blessed we are.
At each location these families were also being given our food, that a receiving partner hands out on a weekly route. It was amazing to realize that each family has been receiving food on a daily basis from this route, allowing them to at least enjoy one good meal a day. God is truly working here in Morgan County and has laid the need on many people’s hearts to help eradicate hunger in our county. We pray that God will continue to use us and our organization to help the families and organizations in need. All the glory goes to Him!
Blessings and Happy New Year, M.C.F.R. Staff
