Atlantic Beach Stuff the Bus

On Saturday August 22, we worked with several other ministries at the "Atlantic Beach Stuff the Bus" in Atlantic Branch, South Carolina. Our part was to provide the food for the children and their families. Prior to the event, people collected food, clothes and school supplies that were then handed out the these families. We cooked the hot dogs and hamburgers there on site and served chips, nachos with cheese, as well as lemonade and water.
To tell a little bit of what happened here in our part - there were all types of people who came out for this meal. We were just about to wrap up with our part and in comes one more family who had traveled a long time to get there and did not think they would make it in time. They had to register to able to get the school supplies and food. So one of us took one of them to get that done, even though we had already started to put that stuff away. Long story short, there was the mom, dad and nine kids... we had 13 hamburgers left along with some chips, cheese, buns and drinks. We sent what we had left home with them. God is so great.

Overall, there was a nice turn out. There were some people there that had no children and just needed a hot meal. We were very glad that we could provide it for them. There was a message of the gospel given out, games, face painting, singing and other entertainment for all to enjoy.
