Meet my four-year-old son’s best friend, Anna Grace Jarvis. She does nearly everything with him, including serving at the mission meal. Last month was Caleb’s first time “serving his customers” (so he quotes) and he wanted to share this experience with his best friend. Wearing too-big gloves makes it all the more exciting.
There’s just something about watching children serve. I know Jesus is smiling from above and seriously saying, “Well done my good and faithful children,” as they giggle, spill spinach on the floor and drop bite size strawberries.
Every woman who walked through the kitchen door was greeted by a child’s smile from ear to ear. Now who needs a meal to go with those smiles?
- 25 Homemade Italian Meatballs with mozzarella and marinara on top of toasted buns
- Strawberry Spinach Salad with homemade poppyseed dressing
- Applesauce from their pantry
Most of the food is generously provided by Manna Food Band. The labor and love is provided by our organization, Mom on a Mission and two giddy four-year-olds.
Have you considered serving at a homeless shelter lately?
