Part of our team went to the Faith Center today. The center has a food distribution ministry five days a week and serves about fifty cars each day. They receive many other various donations that they are able to bless the community with as well. We started our day off with a devotion and prayer before we jumped into the action!

One of the items each family received was fresh-cut flowers. While all of the food went into their trunk, we handed those bouquets directly to the driver and then asked if we could pray for them. We were each challenged to pray for at least one family!
Many of the families that came spoke only Spanish, and Nick jumped right in and took over helping to translate, check-in the families, and pray over them in their native tongue. The Lord was able to use Nick’s willingness to serve and his gift of bilingualism in order to better reach and love on the people that we met today!

The Faith Center is in the process of reopening their building, which has been closed since Covid, for people to come in and ‘shop’ for items other than the food, so the other half of our group worked in the back of the warehouse doing many organization and cleaning projects to help the process along!

Look at the progress we have made setting up for the flea market this weekend. All proceeds from this flea market go directly to the urban ministries of Houston. It was an honor for all of us to be a small part of this ministry. The team served the Lord with kindness!

On Wednesday, a new group went to the Faith Center. We got to help with food distribution again, along with other organizational tasks they had for us. Whether or not someone comes with an appointment, they will receive at least a bag full of essential, non-perishable foods like beans, rice, and peanut butter.

Our final morning of service was spent at the Houston Food Bank! The team packed 17 pallets full of food to be distributed throughout Houston. What an unbelievable effort and blessing!

Our final afternoon was spent enjoying God‘s creation and building stronger relationships down by the sea!

We ended the day going from ride to ride at the Kemah boardwalk. We all came home tired, sandy, a bit worn out, and bonded for life.

Just like that, we are off and heading back home! We are thankful for this week full of ministry, fun, and friends and are excited to find ways to serve back at home. Until next time, Houston!
