Yes We Can feed the hungry

So this afternoon we (and I use that term loosely because there were about 20 other churches involved in this) embarked on a huge task of stocking the Kokomo Rescue Mission’s food pantry through our annual event called Yes We Can.  In short, the youth ministries of every participating church go out into the neighborhoods of Howard County, Indiana and go door to door asking people to give canned food to feed the hungry of Howard County.  It is an amazing gesture of generosity on these people’s part.  Our kids learn a valuable lesson through this: they can be a part of something bigger and watch as God uses them to accomplish something significant in our city.  To make a long story short, we (and I use that term loosely again) were able to collect 8.5 TONS of food for the Rescue Mission.  That will probably feed people for at least the next 5-6 months.  It’s a tangible way to Love God and Love People.  Here are some pictures from the day:
