Good morning !! We would like to give you all an update with what's going on with Hope! Last weekend we went over 26,500 meals served since we opened in January of 2016 ( about a year and nine months ago ). While this number may not seem like a milestone number, we looked at the 2010 census of Somerset County and that number stood at 26,470 people. Now, we haven't served every single person in the county , but we have fed a number equivalent to every man, woman , and child in Somerset County. Praise the Lord !! Who would have thought that He would plop Hope in downtown Princess Anne to do what He has done ? I , for one , will continually be amazed at how it all started .....the burden for the people of this area that He put on people's hearts. I will continue to be amazed at how he orchestrated every single detail. In coming posts I will go into more detail about how He worked everything out ! Glory for everything goes to God ! He loves us. He loves every single one of us. Not one person should ever feel forgotten, overlooked , down or unloved. I truly feel that's the purpose beyond the actual physical hunger need that is being met right off the top. I feel like He wants people to know He is there. He is for them. He loves them . And He hasn't forgotten them💙. We would like to thank each of you for what you have helped accomplish through this ministry. Whether you donated your time or food or financial help or skill set or were in prayer for Hope........it all helped accomplish this milestone. We pray that God's hand of provision will continue to be over this ministry as every week we see more and more new faces and we continue to serve our regular guests whom we love dearly. Thank you all ! Thank you Jesus for your mercy and your grace .
