Today we picked up a load of food from the LA Foodbank.  Our bus was filled to overflowing.  Each thursday morning a small group of guys head out at dark to drive to Los Angeles so that we can pick up food in order to give out the next morning at our church.  We normally get about 3500 lbs each trip plus a pickup full of fruits and veggies.  Today we got a bigger load, 5900 lbs!!  The suspension was bottoming out and the chassis creaked and groaned all the way back to Lancaster, about 80 miles.  I'm now on my way to meet a friend for lunch and the thought that stuck me was that I know where I'm going to get each meal.  I am very blessed.  But this is not true for many people who live in our area.  The Antelope Valley has 17% unemployment right now and many people are losing their jobs, homes and hope.  Each week in our food ministry we estimate that we are providing food for 500-800 people.  It is such a blessing for us to be able to be a part of God showing His love and grace to people.  It feels good that I've been a part of helping others receive  meals.  Isaiah 58 holds great promises to us if we will consider the plight of those in need around us.
