When your church feeds you… it’s a good thing.  Literally and figuratively, I suppose.  This weekend, our church fed us.  It started on Saturday morning, with a delicious egg and sausage and potato breakfast, with cold orange juice to wash it all down.

The breakfast was a part of our Missions Conference week and was the kick off for our second annual “Do Something” event.  After we ate, we heard a few words of encouragement from the missionaries as a sort of food for the soul.  Then, the fifty or so people that were there took off in all various directions, to “do something” and serve our church and community in a variety of ways.  We did yard and town clean up, care package deliveries, nursing home services, prayer and we also passed out tracts at the Outlet mall.  It was a delicious way to start the weekend.

Then, on Sunday evening, our church fed us some more.  This time with our “World Cafe” all church buffet and potluck dinner.  And I for one, love a good church potluck.  The theme was international dishes and our church family enjoyed all sorts of amazing entrees, side dishes and desserts.  And for those of you wondering, no, I did not cook anything this year.  Because it was busy, to say the least and because I’m not a great cook.  I did however, drive to King Kullen and pick up some German Potato Salad and it seemed to be well liked, so I was happy about that.

The dinner was a fantastic way to not only feed our bodies, but also our souls.

Because being with church family and friends is the best food for your heart and soul, in my opinion, at least.

And afterwards, we enjoyed more soul food, hearing the testimony of Brook Seekins and the beautiful work that she does with youth in Tanzania.

At the end of the night, we prayed for and then said goodbye to the remaining missionaries that were there for our conference.

We are so thankful for everyone who attended, and it was especially fun to meet Deanna Olson’s brother who is serving in Bolivia.

All in all, it was a filling and fulfilling Missions Conference Weekend.  It’s a great thing, when your church feeds not only your body, but also your soul.  Thanks so much to everyone who helped out and attended this wonderful event.
