During the past few weeks, everything has closed down and the future has suddenly become unknowable. Some of our neighbors have been experiencing extreme hardship. Unfortunately, others have not made it through this at all.
The mission of the Bread of Life has always been about love—showing the love of Jesus in a tangible way by feeding the hungry and caring for those in need. Virtually every day we have been challenged to meet the increasing needs in our community. It has been during these difficult times that we have experienced love and care both toward us personally as well as to those whom we serve.
One neighbor dropped off soup and freshly baked muffins for our family. Another Rye mom stepped up with her two sons and their pick-up truck and travelled to the food bank to pick up 800 pounds of vegetables to be distributed at the Bread of Life drive-up food pantry this week. To say that we are grateful would be an understatement. After all of this is over and the dust has settled, it will not be back to business as usual for us. That would be impossible because we have changed. After all, love changes things.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son Jesus, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
