Price: $1.00 per sheet “Holy, Holy God Almighty” “Jesus Messiah” “When I Think About the Lord” Notes from the Ministry Center: The wonderful story of the feeding of the 5,000 has a special place in the heart of the Ministry Center. Jesus had spent the greater part of His day healing and teaching the thousands who had come to see Him. At the end of the day, the people were tired and hungry. With only five loaves of bread and two fish, Jesus fed the multitudes. The scripture in Matthew tells us “they were satisfied.” When families in need come to the Ministry Center, we tell them about Jesus. We tell them He loves them. We tell them the plan of salvation. We pray with them. And then…we give them a box of food. I am constantly amazed at how God continues to provide food for the food pantry. I think He takes what we get and uses it much like He did the loaves and fishes. What He tells us is when we honor Him, teach His Word and love people…He will provide. Praise to Jesus for being our provider! Brenda Gail Baldwin
