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.

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:
