what did you eat today?
would you be willing to write down everything you ate today? i did it today... and it was pretty humbling. i dont consider myself a huge eater, but when its all listed out like that... well, i ate a lot today.
yesterday we opened the Kids4Kids Training Table - a feeding program that will feed all 30 rhinos a nutritious meal every day.
this may sound crazy, but kerrie and i agree that it was one of the best days of our lives!! maybe we just weren't expecting it, but it really hit us hard.
these kids dont eat much. some are 16 and 17 years old, and after studying and training at the academy, told us that they hadn't eaten anything yet - all day. before we made the announcement (they didn't know - it was a big surprise), we asked them what they had eaten. it was tough to hold back tears. when we told them about the feeding program - that they would all receive a delicious meal every day - they could not believe it. their reactions were priceless.
another thing that makes this feeding program special is that it is being supported by kids. the kids of savannah christian church bring in their weekly giving... and ultimately their money lands in guatemala where we buy 600 meals a month to feed these boys. kids helping kids. gotta love that.
please watch this short video to get a glimpse of the miracle... and join us in thanking Jesus for this very special opportunity.
