Feeding the Hungry in Guatemala

Giuseppe serves hot meals to the homeless in Guatemala more efficiently thanks to a new commercial stove and appliances provided by Operation Blessing. Read Transcript


NEARLY EVERY WEEK OF THE YEAR,

GIUSEPPE AND HIS SMALL TEAM

PREPARE SOUPS, SANDWICHES

AND OTHER FOODS, ENOUGH TO FEED

400 TO 500 PEOPLE AND THEY DO

IT ALL IN THE SMALL KITCHEN

INSIDE HIS HOME.

EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT HE SERVES

THAT FOOD FROM THE BACK OF HIS

TRUCK TO HUNDREDS OF HOMELESS

MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN WHO

LIVE IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD IN

GUATEMALA CITY.

I BELIEVE GOD CALLED ME TO

THE STREETS.

I GIVE THEM A MEAL BUT MY

HEART'S DESIRE IS TO SHARE THE

GOSPEL WITH THEM.

CBN AND OPERATION BLESSING

HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING HIM WITH

FINANCIAL HELP AND DONATED FOOD

AS HE CARES FOR THE MOST NEEDY

MEMBERS OF HIS COMMUNITY.

PEOPLE LIKE THIS WOMAN AND HER

CHILDREN.

FOR YEARS THE YOUNG FAMILY

LIVED ON THE STREETS.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST

DIFFICULT TIMES OF MY LIFE THAT

I HAD TO COMMIT A CRIME SO MY

CHILDREN COULD EAT.

BUT BECAUSE OF THE KINDNESS

SHOWN TO HER THROUGH THIS MAN'S

MINISTRY SHE PRAYED TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN AND FOUND WORK AND A

PLACE TO LIVE.

AS THE YEARS PASSED THE MAN'S

VISION TO REACH MORE HOMELESS

PEOPLE HAS GROWN BUT NOT HIS

CAPACITY TO MAKE ENOUGH MEALS.

THAT'S WHEN CBN OFFERED TO HELP.

WE PURCHASED A BRAND-NEW

COMMERCIAL-SIZE STOVE AS WELL

AS REFRIGERATOR, FREEZER AND

OTHER SMALL APPLIANCES.

SOON THE KITCHEN WAS READY TO

GO.

THANK YOU.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US THIS

WONDERFUL KITCHEN, OPERATION

BLESSING AND CBN ARE PART OF

THIS BLESSING.
