7 Tons of Food Given

Every year the IMN network helps provide and gather almost 7 tons of food to be given to donated and distributed through CompACT ministries, feeding 75 people on a daily basis, which is more than 27,000 meals a year.

The Assemblies of God headquarters recently featured an article describing the operations:

For nearly four decades, the district has worked diligently to purchase or have donated cattle and hogs to supply meat for CompACT (made up of Hillcrest Children’s Home, Highlands Maternity Home, and the Transitional Living Center). This year was no different.

“Since the first meat cutting, the heart of the district family has been to touch the lives of those who are in need,” says German District Superintendent Dan Miller. “In fact, it is a time of anticipation for the many that gather together and process 6 tons of beef and pork in one day. There is this feeling inside of all of our hearts that we are hearing the words of Jesus as He says, ‘I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.’ You see, we are not only meeting the needs of CompACT we are touching the heart of the Master.”
