I always share things of interest here locally, but this testimony from Manahawkin Methodist Church, another Angel Food host site, was in the newsletter I get every month from AFM headquarters. It’s touching and a reminder that the Angel Food Ministry is so much bigger than just right here in Watson, Louisiana.
Throughout the year, we’ve been taking food to a needy family. In April my trunk was full and topped off with an Easter Dinner box and three Easter baskets. When I got to the house there was no answer at the door. Vehicles were in the driveway, so I began unloading the food on the porch. Two precious eyes were peeking through the blinds watching me. I waved and smiled each time I carried a box. When done, I waved again and left.
Later, a message from the mom explained that after three sleepless nights due to severe pain from surgery, she and her husband had collapsed into deep sleep just before I arrived.
When they awoke, their daughter rushed to say, “MOMMY, DADDY! AN ANGEL CAME TO OUR HOUSE! A LADY ANGEL!” I’ve been called a lot of things over the years, but never an angel! It made me cry.

If you aren’t involved in helping with Angel Food here in Watson, or in whatever community you’re in, I urge you to pray about it. This is one of the greatest outreach ministries EVER! It’s truly a blessing to help reach out to the community in such a fun way. I’ll start sharing comments I get from our host site visitors, from time to time, as well.
