More than Beans and Rice

This week, in response to the increased in basic needs, such as food, in San Quintin, our team provided a meal for the people in a local community (abiding by local distancing protocols). Heather Molina shares this story of connection and witness:

As we were preparing to serve, there was an older man working across the street on his land. He appeared to have been working for a long time as he was dusty and sweaty and so focused that he didn’t hear us the first few times we called to him to get some food. He came slowly, trying to dust himself off, gratefully receiving his food, then leaving quickly. He went back to his land where we saw him ease down in the middle of a dirt mound, lean back for a few moments, then dig into the delicious hot meal. The Pastor looked on with compassion and said, “Look…he was very hungry.”

The man finished his meal and kept on working, and though it was only a brief moment we had with him to shake his hand, give him some food, say, “God bless you”, and invite him to church, we hope that it won’t be just a brief moment for this man. We hope and pray that he remembers this day, the delicious meal when he most needed one, the love of Jesus in our smiles and as we looked him in the eye. It may seem to be just a meal, but if that one meal let that one man get a glimpse of the heart of Jesus, then we have done exactly what we came to do.

This community meal was made possible by a generous donor – thank you!
