Isaiah 58 Feeding Program

While driving from Zambia to Zimbabwe six years ago, the Lord spoke to me about feeding the hungry. He drew my attention to Isaiah 58, and told me that if if we would give ourselves to feeding the truly hungry, we would be surprised at what happened. Since that time we have been able to provide about 400,000 meals around the developing world––in Haiti, Central America, Africa, India, the Philippines and Southeast Asia. Over these past six years, we have received Isaiah 58 donations from children, school classes, home groups, individuals, and families. Each gift has been received with both gratitude and excitement, knowing that Jesus said, “For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat.” (Mt 25:35)

In every country where we provide food, the needs are great, but some of the very hungriest people are in Vizag, India where our partners regularly take nutritious meals to the men, women and children who live on the sidewalks of the city. Many of them live their entire lives there, never even once sleeping with a roof over their head. Others end up there without work, money, food or shelter. Vijay has reported to me on more than one occasion that his team has arrived with food, only to find that someone had just died of starvation. As with our medical clinics and clean water programs, we are all working together to quite literally rescue lives.

Thank you to all of you who give to Isaiah 58. For those of you who would like to know more, click here for the link to that page on our website.

Bless you,
