23 Apr 365 Days of Love: Day 78 ~ Played With and Feed Hungry Children
Spent the evening in the inner city with Freedom Fire ministry in one of the poorest areas of the city in a government housing complex. I got to love on about 60 kids. We played game with them, like soccer, basketball, Frisbee and did things like face painting. The majority of these kids are in fatherless homes, some have a part time mom at best. There was a group of about 20 Somalis, all Moslems, that get to hear about Jesus every week.
After we play and love on them, we tell them a short bible story and tell them about Jesus and His love for them. Then we fed them pizza and oranges. It is the only hot mean most of them would have that day.
It was such a blessing from God to be a father to the fatherless, to feed the hungry, share the love of God and the gospel all in one night. This kids are so starved for love and affection, they latch on to, some times in overwhelming numbers. Just wanting to be close to someone, have there hand held, prayed attention to. So hungry for a hot meal shared in love.
What an awesome way to spend a Friday night loving the forgotten, the poor, the fatherless with the love of God, proclaiming Jesus to them.
