Food for the Hungry














Hannah got the idea that on Christmas day we would make up plates of food and hand them out to the homeless. It worked great because Roger had a car that we could use. So Hannah and Martha prepared fifteen plates of food. They made rice, beans, chicken and topped it with tortillas. Then, Roger, his boys and I hit the streets.
It was amazing. The people were so thankful to have a plate of food. As soon as they got their plate they began to eat. They were so hungry.
In central park we came across a lady and her son. Her one leg was really swollen. She told us that she has a disease called elephant foot. I had never seen anything like this in my life.
When it was all said and done the satisfaction we had in helping others less fortunate was one of the best Christmas presents a person could ever receive. Jesus was right when he said " It is better to give than to receive".
