Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Colossians 2:6-7 6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.So Dean gets a call today from the bread guy....you remember the one who told us he wouldn't be able to give us bread anymore....lol.
After I obsessively went through and "organized" all of the bread by type and taken an inventory - I'm thankful to report that we have 20 racks of bread, 10 racks of hamburger buns, and 13 racks of hot dog buns. Now a rack will hold between 6 to 9 packs of bread - just depending on the type.
Wow wow wow.....He really knows how to provide in abundance!
I have a feeling that we'll be giving out bread to folks in Granville and Durham Counties all weekend :)
I know that I will take some to Hoover Road Apartments tomorrow - as they are a weekly recipient.
I just made a drop off at Urban Ministries of Durham earlier this week - but they are a homeless shelter that feeds people hot meals daily and they also have a food pantry. I'm sure they would gladly welcome another batch of bread.
Dean just went out to Twin Circles Mobile Home Park tonight and gave out some bread - so we will probably visit another trailer park and/or apartment complex in the area - along with visiting the senior citizen apartment complex again.
Please lift us up in prayer in this endeavor....that we will listen to what the Lord has to say....that we will continue to ask Him where He wants this bread delivered....but most importantly that we don't just see this as "bread delivery" but that we use these deliveries as opportunities to share the Gospel. We would really love more opportunities to have in-depth, one-on-one conversations about Jesus!!
