feeding a community

In Njuruta we were able to help feed the community on days we were there, allowing them to participate in our program for the day instead of spending the day fetching water and looking for food. It was such a blessing to see the smiles on the children's faces as well as the adults. It was, however, also a very difficult thing to participate in. Because of the drought it is hard to grow food. Because of the awful condition of the roads it is hard to get anywhere to buy/sell food. It is hard to realize that the meal that we provided was perhaps the only meal of the day. A reality that I cannot fully relate to. How blessed we are. This helps put things into perspective and help us see how valuable our partnership with Njuruta is through Food for the Hungry in helping this community become self-sufficient. This will of course not happen over night. It helps us know how to pray.
