Working at Kids Against Hunger means more to me than anything else I have ever done in my life.
I have always felt that in my life profession of working with children in the church and teaching school, that I was serving God in the way he wanted me to. I taught in the Dropout Prevention/Alternative Education Program, working with students who needed extra care and love. After retiring, I felt God telling me to do something to feed the hungry.
It took me about four years of searching before I found the perfect project. Not only am I feeding the hungry, but the courts send their young people there to do their community service. I feel God has placed me there to work kindly with these young people and to witness when the opportunity avails itself. I only answer questions when they ask, but I have a good lead-in when they ask me why I am there. When I tell them that I feel I'm doing what God wants me to do, it often times leads to discussion.
A young girl once asked me didn't I get tired; I told her that I did but it was the greatest feeling in the world to feel that I'm doing what God wants me to do. Another time a girl asked me if I went to church and I told her how often I go to church and read my Bible. She told me that she doesn't go to church. I ended it by telling her that God loves her just as much as He does me. I doubt she had ever been told that.
