Team Testimonials:

"I've been impacted by seeing the love that the church has for each other."
"One highlight was working with the kids in the church and school. The love we received back was incredible."
"Delivering food hampers and being invited into people's homes, catching a small glimpse into their lives was an experience I wasn't totally prepared for."
"Seeing the elderly living in sheer poverty and then being prayed for by an elderly woman after we delivered her a basket of food broke my heart."
"It broke my heart to see the various people with health issues while delivering food hampers (especially the children)."
