Victims of this month's unprecedented flooding in Colorado are finding help from some newfound friends who came from very far away.
About 18,000 families have been displaced by the flooding that destroyed thousands of homes.
The Virginia-based Mercy Chefs ministry traveled to Colorado to help feed flood victims. They've partnered with local churches to reach families and first responders with hot, quality grade meals.
Founder Gary LeBlanc said it's a blessing to serve the recovering families.
"This is all about spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the power of a shared meal. That's what we do," LeBlanc said.
Mercy Chefs prepared 800 to 1,000 meals per day throughout the weekend.
