Freewill Offering Lunch for Everyone
On Saturday April 22, about 35 people got together in the Family Life Center and packaged meals for the Stamp Out Starvation organization out of Cherokee, Okla. Organizer Monte Stewart brought out all the supplies and items needed to package the meals. Our job was to put the proper amounts of several ingredients (rice, soy grain, dehydrated vegetables and a vitamin mix) into a plastic bag, making sure each bag was the same weight, and vacuum seal each bag and then box them up for shipment to anywhere in the world, including in the USA and even locally if needed. To prepare the meals, the contents of one bag are added to about 6 cups of hot water and allowed to simmer for about 20 minutes. Each bag will feed four to six people. Right now the biggest need is in Haiti, where these meals provide nourishment to people for five to six days out of the week. Overall, meals for 23,436 people were packaged and boxed in about four hours.

According To Larry
Spring is in the air, and new life prepares to emerge. What a wonderful start to Spring is Easter and the promise of new life, even eternal life. As we are aware, so many of the plants that bloom in spring will be gone by the time fall sets in and winter approaches. Even the plants, such as trees, which survive year to year, will eventually succumb to aging and will ultimately die. So it is with our bodies, as mortality reigns … or so it might seem. We have, however, the promise of Easter, of victory over death. In our Easter cantata this year was a song with the line that reads “death is a lie.” In Christ Jesus that is so true. To be sure, we won’t get out of life with our current bodies, but we will overcome and survive into eternity with the surety of the work of Jesus on the cross and the power of God, which rolled the stone away from the tomb, thus defeating death forever and giving eternal life. So, we’ve got that going for us, which is nice. We also have help in this life, the power of God to help us along during our times of trials and temptation, in the name of Jesus and in the person of the Holy Spirit. We all need help from time to time. We all have stones we need rolled away and out of our way. As the Psalmist wrote, God is a very present help in time of need (46:1), and is good all the time. One of my favorite Psalms is 121, which reads that our help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Consider the awesome power and strength and might that it required to create the entire universe, and that power is available to us, as a gift from God. As Edward Perronet wrote, “All hail the power of Jesus’ name!” That is surely worthy of our worship and praise. And so, as a way of closing, I encourage all to pray in the name of Jesus, that is to pray as Jesus would pray, and to tap into the power of the Holy Spirit. . .come, Holy Spirit, and give us comfort in times of pain and loss, and also give us courage for the days ahead. Amen! For Jesus and His Church, Larry
