"The harvest is plentiful..." (Luke 10:2)

God really blessed us today. He blessed us with very good workers—Linda, Cynthia, Kelly, Glenn, and Jasmine. He blessed us with very pleasant weather to work in. He blessed us  with 1,151 Lbs. of produce (details below), far more than we expected. That resulted in His love being felt in several very  palpable ways.

   New relationships were formed. New folks got involved in the garden and we all got to know each other in the process of doing God’s work together. The garden formed a relationship with another hunger ministry, the combined neighborhood kitchen run by the St. John’s and St. Dominic’s Roman Catholic parishes on Columbus’ near east side.

  It fed a lot of people. Most of those crops went to hunger ministries feeding folks in Columbus’ Hilltop, South-side, and Near East Side neighborhoods.

  The rest of the crops helped struggling folks get on their feet. Some went to help DOMA, an organization that helps women escape prostitution, by providing some of the food for a fund raising dinner. Others will go to recent immigrants involved in a local English as a second language program. That is God at work, and we were blessed to be part of it.
