Free Bread Here - For Body and Soul

As a small business owner in the construction industry, Frank was hit hard by the economic turmoil several years ago. Sometimes he went weeks without a paycheck, a real challenge for this single dad with two children. Then he saw a sign offering ... Read Transcript


HE KNOWS THE FIRSTHAND OF

THE

IMPORTANCE OF BEING THERE FOR

HIS KIDS.

MY FATHER, HE WAS NOT

AROUND.

I ALWAYS PROMISED MYSELF

GROWING UP

THAT I WOULD NEVER BE LIKE MY

FATHER.

FRANK OWNS A SMALL

BUSINESS

CLEANING AND DETAILING NEW

HOMES.

WORK WAS STEADY UNTIL THE

ECONOMIC

CRISIS HIT A FEW YEARS AGO

AND JOHN 'S

BUSINESS CAME TO A HALT.

THERE WERE MANY MANY WEEKS

THAT I

DIDN'T HAVE A PAYCHECK COMING

IN.

WHILE DRIVING HOME, FRANK

SAW A

SIGN THAT SAID "FREE BREAD"

HE STOPPED

TO GET SOME FOR HIS FAMILY.

TIMES WERE TIGHT AND I

JUST STOPPED

TO GET A LOAF OF BREAD.

THAT'S ALL THAT WAS ON MY

MIND WAS A

LOAF OF BREAD.

HE CAME BACK AND GOT MORE

FOOD

SUPPLIES FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING".

YOU COME HOME WITH SOME

APPLES AND

VARIOUS KINDS OF CANNED FRUIT.

IF YOU PUT DOLLARS AND CENTS

TO IT AT

THE STORE IT IS A LOT.

FOOD IS THE HIGHEST ON THE

FAMILY

BUDGET.

IF YOU SAVE MONEY ON FOOD,

THAT'S AN

EXTRA EXPENSE THAT YOU CAN

USE ON

SOMETHING ELSE IN YOUR

HOUSEHOLD.

ONE DAY WHEN HE PICKED UP

FOOD, HE

WAS INVITED TO CHURCH.

I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT MUCH,

I

THOUGHT YOU ARE GETTING THE

BREAD AND

EATING THE FOOD.

AND I WENT TO CHURCH.

HE DECIDED TO COME BACK.

WHATEVER THE PAST OR WOULD

SAID IS,

I WOULD COME HOME AND REREAD

IT.

I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT FAITH IN

THE

BIBLE.

HIS FAITH GREW AND HE

STARTED TO

BRING HIS FAMILY TO CHURCH

AND HE SAW

THE FOOD FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING"

OPENING THE DOOR TO SOMETHING

MUCH

DEEPER.

I BEGAN TO SEE THE BREAD,

NOT JUST

BREAD WHERE YOU ENJOY FOR

LUNCH.

"OPERATION BLESSING" FOR

MORE THAN

20 YEARS, THEY REACH OUT TO

THOUSANDS

TO COMMUNITY EVENTS AND HOT

MEALS AND

HEALTH SCREENINGS ARE

PROVIDED AT NO

COST.

FRANK WAS SO TOUCHED FOR THE

HELP THAT

HIS FAMILY RECEIVED THAT HE

NOW

VOLUNTEERS.

HIS CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED A

VALUABLE

LESSON AS WELL.

RIGHT HERE IN OUR

NEIGHBORHOOD

PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY BEING

FED BY THE

FOOD THAT COMES DIRECTLY FROM

THE

WAREHOUSE OF OPERATION

BLESSINGS. IT'S

GOOD TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE

BACK THERE.

THEY ARE YOUR HELPING HAND.
