In my mind today I am thinking about our local nonprofit, Matthew 25 : 40. This past Saturday night it was selected as nonprofit of the year. At the last board meeting, we were thrilled for the nomination. Of course, we were not expecting to win. The last decade M2540 and volunteers fought with blood, sweat, and tears to keep this little ministry going. Just recently we have been blessed by God for answering prayers for this nonprofit to thrive. All in God’s time. We all past and present board members, Executive directors, and volunteers, have kept to our motto :Serving the Least. Look at how God works through us mere humans. Today just like every fourth Thursday of the month, we gave groceries to 700 families. Last month we gave $7000 in utility bill assistance to local citizens. Keeping the electricity and water going for children and elderly and everyone in between. We have a thrift store. It’s better than the Dollar Tree, everything is free! The only overhead expenses are for our director and assistant. All donations of money or items donated are funneled back to the Least. The amazing leadership in our past and current directors, Missy Brubaker and Misty Hutchinson, have helped shape the heart of M2540. That heart has God vision. It doesn’t see an addicted person, a battered uneducated young single mom, or people who are undesirable. At M2540,we see Children of God. May this never change. The man power comes from various types of local Christians from Catholic churches to Assembly of God churches and all of those in between. We also thank the local factories and Kroger. DOT Foods is so very generous. I thank all of you for this honor. Let God receive the glory.
