Whenever we are in Pancasán, we see hungry and malnourished children. Often we would give them our leftovers, or only eat half of what was on our plates. We knew that simply praying for them, and saying “may God bless you” fell far short, without our also taking action to alleviate their hunger and pain.
In December, 2005, the Lord answered our prayers by providing the means for us to start a formal feeding program. Thanks to God, we are now feeding 100‑140 kids a well balanced meal twice weekly. The mothers do the cooking, and we have two staff members who supervise the operation when we are not there ourselves.
