Feeding The Hungry

Our work with Living Bread is a family affair.  We try to keep the kids involved. Recently, Tabitha and Olivia were working in the office on a snow day.  Tabitha asked if she could write a blog post.  Below is the post, as she wrote it, and the pictures she chose to go with it.  

My name is Tabitha I am Barbara and Patrick Hubbard’s child (starters of Living Bread Ministries).

LBM Feeding Ministries

I like LBM because we help poor people experience things they wouldn’t have if we weren’t there to help them. We are trying to raise money for food kits for hungry families. The food kits are important because families can have healthy food to eat.  If you want to donate for them, go to http://www.livingbread.org/ . Hope you donate! FYI each food kit is $15.00

Any way, I just love LBM and I hope you do to, you can follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

Have a blast helping us! Have a good day!

Reality Check

Sometimes I forget how blessed I am.  I allow the business and mundane things of everyday life to get in the way of the joy that I should be reflecting on daily.  Nothing knocks me back into reality more than when the Lord rubs my face into what life could have been.  I have been in Southern Brazil now for barely 5 days.  Since I arrived the weather has been insane here, we have gone through almost all 4 seasons in one single day.  Since noon Saturday we have had severe thunderstorms with high winds; it has rained nonstop (literally) since it started until this morning.

Last night, as I was driving back to the apartment I am staying in at a quarter past two in the morning, I had to find new streets to take me to my destination as several roads/streets were closed due to the heavy rain, and yet I could not help but see the homeless laying on the streets half covered in water from the rain and at times water that had backed up from sewers.  At 2:15 a.m. I drove past a couple  in a nearby slum walking to their makeshift house while pushing their baby in a stroller.  I felt then as if the Lord had slapped me in the face.  I had spent the day complaining about the weather and the rain all the while I was in clean dry clothes, enjoying coffee and food at my disposal.  I could not help but ache for those in the slums, the very ones we are working in, just with the thought of what their last few days had been like, wet, cold, standing water everywhere, inside and out of their homes.  As I parked the car and took the elevator up, to my warm and dry bed, I asked the Lord for forgiveness for my lack of gratitude.  Gratitude to have been chosen to be born into the family I was born in, gratitude for being chosen to find Him, gratitude for being allowed to see these truths.  I pray that He never stops reminding me of this reality, that I never grow so complacent that I no longer see them.

I am thankful that the Lord has called Pat and I to serve Him in the manner that he has.  I am thankful that He has totally given us the vision and purpose for Living Bread Ministries.  I pray that you will prayerfully consider partnering with us to continue the work He has started.  The Lord has been opening some amazing doors for LBM and with growth there are needs.  Need to support new pastors and new church plants, needs for a vehicle, training and equipment.  If you know Pat and I at all, you know that we do not like to ask for things we need, however the Scriptures teaches us that we must make our requests known (Phil. 4:6), so I am appealing to you, to prayerfully consider a small need at this time.  With our growth, we are in need of a new laptop for the ministry; would you consider giving to meet this need?

Thank you for taking the time to read and follow the blog.  May the Lord richly bless you!
