PostSubject: I want to start a food ministry   Sun Sep 15, 2013 9:03 pm

Many of you who know me know that cooking is one of my passions in life. I love to create creative and delicious meals. Last night I had the opportunity to cook some chicken and ribs for my son's best friend's family.

Some background is in order. The husband went in for surgery a year and a half ago. Due to doctor error in removing a tumor he is now paralyzed from the waist down with limited use of his hands. He is bound to a wheelchair and needs a hoyer lift to get him in and out of the chair. Before this surgery he was a perfectly healthy man. His wife quit her job to take care of him full time. They are now in the Medicaid system and they don't qualify for much assistance from food stamps. I would love to invite them to come to church but its impossible for them to come because the public wheel chair transport service aka LiftLine has limited routes on Sundays. Rob and I were discussing this whole dilemma coming home from grocery shopping and he said to me, "We have to be The Church to them"

We were invited to come for dinner last night. Rob and I cooked the entire meal. I made BBQ chicken, ribs and we also cooked up some fresh zucchini along with some homefries; which Rob cooked up on their grill. We did not want them to lift a finger at all. Between our family and theirs they're were 9 people. The best part was there were a lot of left overs which we left for them. We all had a great time last night just hanging out. We didn't talk about God or church or anything like that but God's hand was totally in this. As I was putting the left overs in their fridge I wanted to cry when I saw how empty it was. They are a family of 4. It really made me feel convicted when I take for granted my fully stocked fridge. They really enjoyed the dinner especially Rob's potatoes. It was a total privilege to show them God's love by using the gift that God has given me. I really want to do more to help them out. We don't have a whole lot of extra money but I want to take them shopping for food and whatever else they need.

It may not be that God is wanting you to "start a ministry" is it might be Him wanting you to specifically care for this family.  God works by showing us what He is trying to accomplish and then inviting us to join Him in that work.

My thought is that God will show you what His plan is in the "food ministry".

I would suggest to continue to be The Church to this family.  Possibly talk with the church leadership to see if there could be a food drive to assist them.  I would first ask the family's permission to do so before proceding with it.
