Prayer Request

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

May I please ask you to pray with John and I as we seek God for direction regarding a need at the Robeline Food Pantry?

In 2008 two local food pantries closed their doors. One in Natchitoches which is 15 miles from us and one in Winnfield which is about 40 miles from us. There is a couple coming from south of Winnfield with a list of people who need supplemental food in that area. They come each month in their small pick-up truck to pick up the boxed food and deliver it to the needy. There are many more in that area who would benefit from food but are having issues traveling the distance to pick up the food each month.

We have a few options:
1. We can continue to load the couple’s small truck with boxes and only serve a limited number of families.
2. We can find a location, load our own trailer and make a trip up there once a month at a specific time to distribute.
3. Or we can open another pantry in that area and appoint someone there to oversee the pantry and duplicate what we do in Robeline.

At the pantry each month there are hundreds of families who receive not only physical food, but we have been blessed to see many salvations, people filled with the Spirit, and healings through what our wonderful Lord does through this avenue of ministry.

Please pray with us as we seek the mind of Christ and get His direction.

Thank you... God bless you...
