G4G Ministries Inc. has been busy over the course of the past month. Since September 19th, we have participated in three Community Feeding Events, as well as our 10th Annual Golf Tournament! While COVID-19 brought an abrupt stop to much of normality, the reality is that hunger has not ceased. If anything, we have seen a rise in food scarcity and felt called to meet the basic needs of those in our community during a trying time.
By creating a safe environment for those we feed, we have been able to continue “glorifying our awesome God by serving and ministering to those in need physically and spiritually with our mobile grilling and ministry impact team.” Drive-through feeding events have been implemented over the course of the past few months. Alongside our team of volunteers, board members, and our Father, G4G Ministries Inc. fed our brothers and sisters at various locations throughout September and the beginning of October. In total, we had the privilege to assist the Lord in feeding 865 individuals throughout our community.
On September 19th, we partnered with Statesville Parks and Recreation at The Bentley Center! While the surrounding residents had the opportunity to beautify their community center, we were able to supply food to individuals who may not receive adequate nutrition or warm meals at this time.
The following weekend, on September 26th, we set up our mobile grills at Iredell Christian Ministries. The location was “new” for G4G Ministries Inc., and we were grateful for the opportunity! Two of our faithful volunteers, Mike and Adeline, regularly volunteer for Iredell Christian Ministries throughout the week. It was the two of them who suggested the location and led our team in preparing for the event! What a blessing it was to watch volunteers with a heart for G4G Ministries Inc. take their volunteering to a whole new level by leading an event!
Lastly, this past weekend, on October 10th, our volunteers joined us in feeding our brothers and sisters at Compare Foods on West Front Street! In the pouring rain, cars lined up to receive their warm grilled chicken plates! As we served every bit of the prepared food, we left with a grateful heart and an understanding that the Lord provides in all circumstances. We look forward to serving at Compare Foods again soon as we can reach a wide range of residents and community members!
As the dust settles from our four-week stint of events, we are thankful for a Father that loves His people and lavishes an astounding grace upon us all! We cannot wait to continue serving the community through a warm meal as November approaches soon. Join us as we congregate once again to meet basic needs and express the love of Jesus on November 14th! Until then, please continue to pray for the Lord’s hand to be in every detail of G4G Ministries Inc.
