Mr. Charles is a client of a missional food pantry. The aim of missional food pantries is to see to the client’s spiritual as well as physical sustenance. Listen as Mr. Charles tells about the impact of both the food he needed and the prayer he received: “They help me. I, in turn, help them”
You can hear more about missional food pantries this coming Sunday, the 14th, 10:30pm on 101.9 K-LOVE will be airing a half an hour show about FHL’s Missional Food Pantry. Thank you K-LOVE!
Thank you to FHL friends and partners, LithoPress and Indianapolis Fruit! You’re blessings to the city! – Merlin Gonzales, Founder, FHL Community
LithoPress has been a long time partner and supporter of FHL Community. FHL has often had the use of their 24-footer truck to transport food for pantry use. We thank LithoPress and Vice President, Bernie Lacey, for their generosity in helping support missional food pantries in Central Indiana.
Indianapolis Fruit is a distributor of fruits, vegetables and floral for the city of Indianapolis and they also have contributed to our missional food pantries. Indianapolis Fruit has a long record of supporting community outreaches in our city and FHL appreciates their friendship. Thank you for all you do!
Volunteers gathered at the FHL Warehouse earlier this week to load up pallets for distribution to the community through missional food pantries. Missional food pantries differ from past food pantry and soup kitchen methods and set up by serving the client both spiritually and physically.
The original backyard mission work continues where its needed most – in service to those in our own communities.
We had great discussions at this month’s April Table Talk. Our missional food pantry partners are growing. And the missional food pantry approach is bearing fruit with clients accepting salvation.
The following photos were taken at our FHL Table Talk meeting and then at the FHL Missional Food Pantry held at our training center. We served 55 families in 2 hours which was an increase this month. Prayer outreach was eagerly accepted by our clients. Leaders who attended the Table Talk beforehand, learned and were eager to use our evangelism survey to share Christ at their own food pantries. Seniors prayed for each other along with our prayer team assistance. More harvesters and laborers are still needed. You can be a part by attending the next Table Talk and by volunteering.
