The month of January was busy with a number of events. Two of these special events were the tribal feedings. Feeding programs have become an important part of our operation. Anytime we can gather enough finances, a large amount of wholesome food is purchased and delivered to the remote tribal villages. We wish there was more we could do for these precious people, but unfortunately we do not currently have enough capacity to provide them with better education and jobs so that they would be able to fully provide for themselves. Another thing we dream of for the future… We are not sad, though. We are determined to do what our part is at the moment and trust God for the rest.
As our last tribal feeding was in August 2011, you can imagine our January’s excitement to be able to share meals, clothing, and toys with two tribes in one month! However, we do not come to them with natural means only. We use the natural to be able to bring to them the spiritual food. Each of the feedings were accompanied by a gathering unto the Lord. We were given the opportunity to share the gospel of the Kingdom with them, encouraging them not only to give their lives to the Lord, but also to build a close personal relationship with Him. Our hearts were filled with gladness as we drove back home.
