Meals from the Heartland is a huge Midwest charitable operation. Here in the breadbasket of America, where a huge percentage of the world’s corn, beans, pork and beef are raised, thousands of volunteers have spent countless hours packaging simple meals to be shipped to needy, hungry children around the world. Those who’ve volunteered their time may wonder where the meals go and if they truly get delivered to those in need.
This is a picture of Wendy’s dad. He organized a Meals from the Heartland event in Boone, Iowa and is now in South Africa overseeing distribution of meals. Wendy and I are so proud of his efforts. Those who know “Mr. Ed” know how overjoyed he has to be at this moment. This is what he lives for, to be the hands of Christ feeding the hungry. I fought back tears of joy when I saw this picture. How very, very cool.
