God provided another group of “newbies” to deliver food with us this past Thursday.  We must of had about 40 people in all.  I have to say that we were totally blown away with their passion and enthusiasm.  We’ve always believed that there were many others in our own community that wanted to do “something” they just needed the opportunity.  Amy & I have the utmost admiration for people that “just do something”.  When we started this we had no idea what it was going to look like but we knew we just “needed to do something”.  Jesus Was Homeless continues to grow, reshape, minister and looks totally unlike anything we could of planned ourselves.  From the very moment the group of sandwich makers showed up to the first motel, you could tell that God was going to show up in a big way.  Our devoted friend Doug coordinates the weekly assembly of the “Happy Face Meals” and was blown away at the number of people that showed up this week to help.  Without his help and the many volunteers that assemble the meals the delivery would not be possible on this scale.  We are now delivering over 200 meals each week and they are still very much needed even in July in Branson.  At the first motel we had an older gentleman eagerly awaiting our arrival in the parking lot.  He only has about $100 a week to live on after his Veteran’s check and was out of food.  We had lots of new faces praying together and experiencing community.  If you would like to learn more or to see God in action in Branson, as always, we would invite you to “come and see” any Thursday.
