The Big Feast on Thanksgiving

On Thanksgiving day, we get to be part of THE BIG FEAST! This is our 2nd year of joining in and we absolutely love it!  We absolutely love our church family and it's the perfect thing to do on this wonderful holiday. We join together for a delicious meal and help feed others.There are so many people out there that may not be able to buy/make dinner or who just may not have family around to enjoy it with, that is what the Big Feast is all about...coming together to serve each other and God! 

The kids love it because it is held at our sister church in Wright City.  It's called The Connection Community Church in Wright City and it is in an old church house.  We love old buildings and this one is fun for the kids to gather and run around, exploring the staircases and all around.  They were so excited to go back this year!
This year, we got to bring Danny with us. My sister had to work so it was perfect for him to come along and help out.  We decided to take some hot meals out around the town...we handed them out to people who were working, people in motels, anyone who wanted a yummy warm meal on Thanksgiving Day!  Our friend, Kathy, was driving and she even gave a young man a ride, all the way across town, just to help him out...she is such a sweetheart!  My favorite moment of the day, was when Danny got down on the ground and scooted underneath a semi truck inside of a garage, to talk to a mechanic working overtime...he offered him a hot meal, the mechanic was shocked and so happy!  He even directed us to the truck driver that was stranded by the broken down truck!  We had already delivered to!  It was a wonderful day!
