There are more and more new people signing up for groceries at our local food shelf. In addition to these, this morning there were six new families from a neighboring town requesting food. I am thinking this may be an indication of things to come. It would be good if more churches got involved with organizing a Food shelf program. Since we are church sponsored and supported, we have liberty to hand out Bibles and to pray with folks as they come in. We are not pushy with this, but are there if we are needed. I have had the opportunity to pray for a lot of people. Mostly, they request prayer for jobs. Many are out of work for the first time. Some have had their hours cut back and are struggling on reduced income. I have also been able to take in extra produce from my garden. Since most of the donated food is either packaged or canned, the fresh produce is very popular. It seems that the more I give away, the more that grows in my garden. Amazing grace.
