The Last Supper (for a bit) with Isaiah 61 Ministries, (APRIL, ANGEL, Kids and all Home-Lost of Harrisburg, PA) thank-you for the kindness… you have ‘paid it forward’! We have (so much) enjoyed the laughter, tears, new friendships, witnessing the illumination of unselfish kindness and the gratifying experience assisting the serving of those way-less fortunate (ATM) than ourselv…
Our last visit with Isaiah 61 Ministries was filled with excitement and blessings – we were able to help serve, once again an excellent meal, brought only by April and Angel themselves. To watch this family in action, one would think they were witnessing angels at work – everyone from the Founder, Co-Founder to their children; every last one enjoying their missionary work.
Uncertain to whether it was the fact that this was to be our last meal – along with them for some-time or if it was the fact that we pushed away all of the obstacles that were placed in front of us; of course it could very well have been the interview we enjoyed so much with our friend “Fish” (interview to come shortly). Whatever it was that day, ALL involved were blessed.
We followed behind (in our vehicle) Fish as he led us in and out of traffic (on his bicycle), to the destination, nearly late for set-up. When we arrived Fish had the smart idea to chain his bicycle to the truck, as a way (we suspected) to keep us around until all was wrapped up. Yet, we had no intention of leaving, not until work was completed.
The prayer (as-usual) was so righteous (Courtesy of Angel) and the fellowship as we gathered round the food site was amazing. Our new-found friends (a lot of familiar faces) as well as some new ones; each and every one had a wonderful time.
Angel took us to different areas, where we went in search of the faces that didn’t show up – the faces he knew would be hungry. As we went for our ride-along, we set up shop in front of an old friends’ home site. Grateful we stopped by; they were able to have full-bellies that night as well as fellowship.
Overall, the night was a huge success and we will miss our friends in Harrisburg… until we see them again!
Thanks to you all for allowing Stone to Bread into your home, your mission and welcoming us into your life as family.
