Every year during the month of November, Take the City hosts an event called “Thanksgiving Food Drive.” During this event, we invite the local church and community to link arms to help provide Thanksgiving meals for those in need. This year our goal was to give away 500 bags of food.
Fortunately, with the help many people from different churches and backgrounds coming together, we were able to feed 500 families in need. Many people helped by donating canned goods, giving financially and volunteering their time to help pack and give away the food.
Why do we do this?
“After praying with a father and his family, the father wanted to pray a blessing over us. As he did, he thanked God for brining us to his home. Taking his two bags of food, he left happy and so encouraged. Moments, later we were able to pray with another couple, a man and his wife. We found out the wife had pain in her right knee. After praying with her, she tested her knee out and all the pain was gone. We all rejoiced together and praised God!”
That day, we were able to bless 500 hundred families in need. Many of them were encouraged in the Lord. Our teams prayed and encouraged a total of 199 people. 17 of the people were healed physically/emotionally and 5 of the people received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
“His works are wonderful. We know that full well.”-Psalm 139:14
Thank you to all those who gave sacrificially of your time, energy, resources and money. Without you, we could not have done this.
