God Always Knows Best

Last June we did our first Children of the Nations ( ) food assembly for our Celebration. We ended up donating and assembling 8,000 meals that day, but also challenged people to host "Parties with a Purpose" where they could invite their friends and neighbors into their homes to assemble food.

All together, Missio Lux saw the ripple go to 46,440 meals! This is enough food for 100 kids for 18 months....

Imagine our delight when we got this email from our good friend and kingdom partner, Fraser Ratslaff, who told us that our 8,000 meals got shipped off to Haiti to help the children who are at risk there....God knew long before we did how these lovlingly packed meals would be used:

Dear Missio Lux,

I'm so excited to let you know that the 8,000 meals you packaged on June 7th, 2009 has been loaded into a shipping container that is headed to help the people of Haiti right now!

The container was packed by Children of the Nations staff and volunteers on January 28th in Kingston, WA. The container was then put on a train to New York and is now on a ship to the port of Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. The food will be unloaded by our staff in Barahona, trucked into Haiti, and distributed to those in need.

It is because of your generosity and decision to take action in packaging this food that hungry children, women, and men will receive nutritious meals in the mist of this disaster.

Thank you for being the 'hands and feet' of Jesus Christ and feeding the hungry.
