Feeding kitchen

What does it look like, in a city of one million street people, to feed 660 people, every day, six days a week?  (We can’t really describe it, only show you with these pictures.)  What type of people live on the streets in a place like Addis?  (All kinds.  Young, old, male, female, disabled, mothers with babies, you name it.)  How much does it cost to feed that many people each day? ($120.)

These are the kinds of questions that you develop before you enter the feeding center.  But very soon, they start to pass as everyone begins to find joy, either in service or in reaching out a hand or giving a kiss to these people who are easily forgotten and ignored.  What a blessing it is to work with these saints from HOPE Enterprises in their ministry of “preaching the good news to the poor” with daily bread.
 
Matthew 25:34-36 “Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'“
