Just Another Monday

Monday morning, so it's time to feed the hungry!  Metro Relief opens the doors at 9 am and there is always a like of people waiting for food. One of the aspects of working at the pantry that I enjoy is there are so many different ways to serve.   For an example, Abigail and her friend Emma work to greet and sign guest up to receive groceries.  Caleb helps with intake, talking and praying with guests.  I do a lot of computer data entry and paperwork.  Some days Abigail and Emma help the guests shop for groceries.  In the back, Frankie works at marking cans and sorting food donations.  Everyone usually pitches in to unload the delivery truck when it arrives on Wednesdays.  

There really is a job that everyone can fit into their routine and help out! Some days I really enjoy visiting and praying with guests, but there are other days when I prefer to hand out and mark cans. 

Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker,
    but he who is generous to the needy honors him.

Proverbs 14:31
