BECAUSE "JESUS ES MI DIOS"
Our vehicle pulled up to a neatly manicured sports park with a brightly colored cinder block building standing at the entrance. Jesus and Solamar were waiting to greet us. This father of three works the night shift at the Jacuzzi factory, getting home at 2:00 am. By 7:00, he is up and helping his wife with family responsibilities as they prepare to head to the community center. At 8:00 am, Monday-Friday, they open up and run the community center offering programs like Zumba and employment workshops.
As part of their service to the community, Jesus and Solamar run a meal program where 35 children and 15 elderly come together and enjoy OTB meals. When asked what motivates Jesus to care for his neighbors in this way, he shares:
"I do this because I have my family, my three kids, and when we came to Tijuana I watched and a lot of people don't have food and the kids don't have families, they don't have houses. My heart hurt and that is why I stay here. There is the need to help a lot of people especially the kids. And Jesús es mi Dios (Jesus is my God). Thank you for everything."
We are so thankful to partner with people, like Jesus and Solamar, who are the hands and feet of Jesus in their community by consistently offering meals to those who need them most.
2019: REACHING BEYOND
The hard work and dedication that has taken place over the past decade, both here in the States and overseas, has allowed Outside the Bowl to construct 9 Super Kitchens and cook more than 19.5 million meals. We've saved ministry partners thousands of dollars and seen communities gain jobs and thriving businesses as each Super Kitchen flourishes.
As we move into 2019, a theme continues to come to the surface ... the idea of reaching beyond. Outside the Bowl's Super Kitchen staff know what they are doing. They work well together assuring that all the daily tasks get completed in order to feed those that are hungry in their communities.
Our network of Super Kitchens are in a place to reach beyond the current list of more than 300 ministry partners to offer our meal service so that more people can flourish. Funds raised for capacity expansion have been spent. Industrial bakeries for the Port-au-Prince, Haiti and Paarl, South Africa kitchens will be installed this year.
For the U.S. office, we will be sharing Outside the Bowl's story with new audiences in San Francisco, California's Central Coast, and Denver, Colorado during the first half of 2019. OTB's foundation is firm. We're ready to reach beyond in 2019.
Will you join us in praying for open doors, open hearts, and for the Lord to continue to guide OTB's path in 2019?
Thank you for partnering with Outside the Bowl to feed the hungry ... body and soul!
