We held our April 2009 distribution on Saturday, April 25th from 7am until 9am. The truck was there, waiting for us, at 4am, and we got started.
This distribution was special for me because it was our 1 year anniversary as a host site with Angel Food Ministries! We also had a couple of other special things happen.
Mrs. Rhonda brought some stuffed animals of all shapes, types, and sizes to be given away during distribution. These were a hit with kids and grown ups! Thanks, Mrs. Rhonda!
The Denham Springs Relay for Life Event was held the night before and when they finished up bright and early Saturday morning, they brought bananas, granola bars, and Crystal Lite mix that ended up being extras so we could give those away during distribution, as well. Thanks, guys, the bananas went in about 30 minutes! The granola bars were all gone by the end of distribution and only a few Crystal Lite mixes were left.
The volunteers that came to help out with distribution were amazing, as usual. It is astonishing how these folks just dig in and do whatever is necessary to make things run as smoothly as possible. A special thanks from me to you for your dedication and hard work! This could not happen without you all!
God has really taken the Angel Food Ministry at Live Oak Baptist Church and done some amazing things with it. Expect some new and exciting things to appear during distribution over the next year.
Thanks to all of those who came out to help and to those who came to pick up their boxes. I love you all, dearly!

If you aren’t participating in Angel Food, either by purchasing the boxes or volunteering, I encourage you to get in on it. Either way, Angel Food will be a blessing to you!
