To the Grace Church Family,
It is truly amazing what we accomplished as a community at the end of May! We packed 1,043,280 meals with over 4,200 volunteers!!!
So what happened to the meals? Did they go to a warehouse somewhere? Who received them? Did they go to one country or many?
Keep on reading and see what a few days of focused work by our awesome Church family accomplished.
You gave desperately hungry people hope that will sustain them throughout their lives by feeding them in the name of Jesus. You gave them hope with your two hands!
What a joy that God chose to work through our community to speak loudly from Greater Akron that “He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.” (Psalm 146:7)
Can you see God working through these meals?
