Feed My Starving Children

By V.J Wakefeild

This might seem like a strange title, but this is the name of a Christian, non-profit organization which helps feed malnourished children in over 60 countries around the world, and has over 80 partnerships in these countries. I have had the honor of going to one of these places, and it was very nice and uplifting both spiritually and emotionally.

What they do is again that they feed malnourished children in their most desperate hours. At their buildings they take in people who volunteer with them, which who then help pack the food named, ” Manna Packs” into boxes for a certain country for each day. Then after they were done, they pray over the food then ship them off to the country they were packing for.

These were the exact things that happened when we visited. Last year in the month of November, the Friday after Thanksgiving my mother and I went because we wanted to help give the kids the Thanksgiving they deserve, and also because it was a project at school to volunteer in my community. So we went online and signed up online. When we went to one of their locations, it was full of happy people and the feeling was just wonderful. So they brought us inside after we put out stuff away and put on our hairnets. They sat all the people down and introduced the jobs. There were the loading, packers and the labelers. My mom and I went to label with a mother and her kids. They were little kids, but they were excited to help out. Lastly, they gathered all the boxes and we prayed over them, so they can have safe travel and go into the kids’ bellies. According to the woman, this is what we achieved in the week:

Boxes Packed: 145

Meals: 31,320

Kids fed for a year: 85

Costs: $6,890

During the entire experience, I have felt so happy and welcomed, even as we went back home. It made me want to go back there again and again. I would definitely give the experience a 10/10 would recommend. I also recommend that you do this as well. Not only does it help feed hungry kids, but it also can help save lives. Additionally, when you go there you can buy some stuff so some money can go to the people around the world who made them. I bought a butterfly ornament for the Christmas tree.

To be able to volunteer or donate go to this website:

Picture time! (Yay!):

So please help feed God’s starving children around the world.

Operation Jolly Feet

By V.J Wakefeild

Today, my mother, brother and I went to First Christian Church for an event about an organization called Operation: Jolly Feet. It’s run by a couple named Run and Scottie bloomer along with their families to help people in the Dominican Republic, through providing clothing and shoes for their kids, help build and repair houses and they have a church for people that help people get closer to Jesus. So first at the event, we praised God and prayed for Him to bless and forgive us.

Then they went into detail with what they were doing. Zuni’s parents are pastors and they were able to build a church for God in the Dominican Republic. They also have mission trips there and help out in building people’s houses. One time they repaired a house for a widowed woman whose house was in terrible condition, so they went and with God’s help, fixed and now it is clean and very pretty. Additionally, they established a Church which is very successful in, and outside the church walls. And finally, they helped create a daycare for the working parents, so they can help them know that their kids are safe. They also work with Scottie in his organization called Operation Jolly Feet. This is an organization which helps give clothing, shoes and everyday basic necessities to families and to children who are not as fortunate as us.

They both have been extremely successful and they both have relied on God to help them with the donations and the money needed. What I have learned was that if the flesh says no, and The Holy Spirit says yes, just do it, and the blessings will come, also to let God in control because He will not disappoint.

So what can you do? Well to donate some money, and if you’re in the area, send your donations here:

International Dominican Christian Mission

38 W 310 McDonald Rd.

Elgin, IL 60124

And this is for Jolly Feet:

Go to Operation Jolly Feet on Facebook.

Here’s some pictures of the event:

There is also going to be a concert for charity that they will be attending on Friday May 31 at 6:00 pm at Church Balsam to the heart.

So please Donate and Pray for the organizations and please help them out please.

From Darkness to Light: My Testimony

Testimony By V.J Wakefeild


    From the darkness to the light, here’s my story. I’ve dedicated my life to Jesus at the young age of 7 years old. According to my mom, I gave my life to Jesus Christ after watching a Billy Graham crusade. After that, there has been nothing but good. However, as I got into my elementary school years things you could say, got a little rough. See, when I was younger, I had hearing loss which gave way to me wearing large, bulky hearing aids accompanied with braces that poked and prodded me the inside of my mouth. This did not help my self-esteem, because this was the very thing I was made fun of for. People used to call me Yoda and other nasty names. This made me see myself in darkness. In addition to all of this, the hearing loss I had prohibited me from being a happy, playful kid. I had an infection at a young age which lead to holes in my eardrums, which lead me to the hearing loss. This hearing loss was like torture for me. I couldn’t swim because the water would always go straight into my ear and it would cause me agonizing pain. I had surgery to repair it when I was younger, but it was a horrible experiences. I couldn’t play with other kids, hang on the monkey bars, or run around. I remember one day I had to turn down a bounce house birthday party from one of my friends because of this hearing loss. When my mother and I went to the hospital for a check-up to see if it healed up, it did not. And this absolutely destroyed me. It felt like I was going to be stranded with these for life. And the braces I had did not help any of this. Sometimes it would hurt so bad that I was unable to sleep. I would beg God at night to fix me and get rid of my pain.

     As I got to middle school, the bullying got worse, and I started looking on the web for hours to distract myself from the world around me, but this got out of hand since I started becoming obsessed with it. Hours and hours would make me feel like I was filling up something inside of me, but it wasn’t. Then, later on, I joined the school band, and the class struck me down even more. I felt like I was not worth anything and that I was a speck of dust just flying around. I had faith in God but that started to wither like a rose in the first hours of winter. One day I felt a literal hole inside of me. I asked and begged God to fix this, to do something about it, and He did.

    On December 10th in either 2015 or 2016, I was laying in my bed listening to Christmas music. While I was thinking about tomorrow and worrying about what it might deliver, I decided to sway my mind from this by singing in the middle of the night. So while I was signing, one song stood out to me. It was O Holy Night by Josh Groban. Such a beautiful song! While I was singing, I thought, You know what? Even though my life right now sucks I would perform this for God because he has always been good. Therefore I did it for Him and then something happened, I had a vision!

    First I saw the Baby Jesus in a manger going in a circle. It was white and wispy. Then I saw The Cross. And they were both circling each other. I saw a smile. His smile! It was the most beautiful smile that I have ever seen in my entire life. It felt peaceful, mighty and I felt sheltered by His presence. It felt like home. He was saying to me that He was right here. That no one can touch me. That I was safe. I then felt something flow into me like water, smooth and clean into my heart. I knew it was the Holy Spirit right then and there, so I took off my sheets and let Him in. And as the final note slipped out of the headphones, the vision faded and I drifted into a deep, deep sleep.

    This has changed my entire life. The bullying completely stopped and few months after this event in my life, I underwent another surgery, but with a different doctor. And now I am 100% hearing loss free. I recently have had my braces removed and now have a straight row of pearly whites. But most importantly of all, I am free. Free from sadness, anger, and darkness. Free from all evil, and I was happy. I felt full and even overflowing and it felt like I was complete And then on February 11th, 2018, I was baptized and showed the world that I was ready to follow Jesus to the end. Which leads to here. I am a changed woman because of Him and am proud of being Christian. And like Matthew 19: 25-26 states “When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”  

If you have a testimony, put it in the comments below please. Let’s encourage everyone!
