Bob is 86 years old and loves to fish! For the past several years, Bob has hosted a fish fry for his birthday. The catches from his fishing expeditions are used as the main course and Bob invites his friends and family to attend his Birthday Celebration. At the Fish Fry, Bob charges an entrance fee which he donates to the New Mexico Christian Children’s Home! He collects this entrance fee in cash and canned goods and travels over from Sudan, Texas to personally deliver these gifts to our Home after his birthday. This year Bob brought several boxes of canned goods and over $1600 to the Home! Thank you and Happy Birthday to Bob, our fish fry guy!
Millie is also 86 years old and loves to bake homemade bread and cookies! Millie came all the way from one of our
supporting churches in Garden City, Kansas to make homemade bread and cookies for our Residential Homes. Millie was a welcome visitor to the cottages when she brought her bread dough in and placed them in the oven. The smell was amazing and the bread tasted even better! Our children enjoyed homemade bread for dinner and oatmeal cookies for snacks. Thank you, Ms. Millie, our bread lady!
Two amazing people sharing their gifts with the Home and helping us feed our “masses” – the 54 children in Residential Homes, the 39 moms and 79 children in Single Parent Homes! And that is our modern day Loaves and Fishes story!
To read the original Loaves and Fishes story of how Jesus fed 5,000 people, please read Matthew 14:13-21.
