What to do with an alcoholic with no hope, a worker with no work, and a feeding center with no food?

Answer: The best you can… I spent my money on two weeks of food for the two of them to go to the feeding center, food for the widows, and resources to help plant vegetables for widows and orphans. We already sent him to drug rehab and the influence of the neighborhood brought him down. So we sent him away where there is no alcohol, bought him food, and when he gets back he gets his wage. Our drug rehab programs work because they always came back when they fall. Jesus is their only hope. It was pretty funny as Carlos was loading the truck with him sweating massively from trying to dry out and work and we didn´t even break a sweat even though we were doing twice as much as him. So we loaded the pickup with food for the feeding center and for the workers, a tiller that has broken down several times that we just got out of repair, and resources for planting. I took a picture of Carlos and the other worker and Carlos looked in such bad shape that I gave him a joke that,¨It looks like you are some kind of drug rehab project or something that has no hope. Smile or something!¨ He chuckled and started to smile. So here is your before and after pictures. Sometimes a word is all it takes to give someone hope. So I sent them off to the feeding center with a pickup loaded with supplies to do the work of the ministry. It is a four and a half hour drive or only a thirty minute flight.

The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. We are still looking for a farmer to run that program.
