Lunches for all the First Graders in Bois Negresse, Haiti!

Will you join me and Wrapped in Prayer, the prayer shawl ministry at CTKLutheran Church, Bozeman, in the third annual Gallatin Valley Packathon on October 15th, 2022? Help us provide school lunches for many precious, hungry children in Bois Negresse, Haiti!  You may wish to donate financially to provide for the purchase and shipping of these meals and/or volunteer individually, or as a group, to pack meals during a two-hour session  on October 15th.  This event will be held at Hope Lutheran Church in Bozeman and is a joint effort with Christ the King Lutheran Church.  

All monetary contributions and volunteer efforts will be recognized, or kept anonymous if you prefer, giving credit where credit is due.  Thank you for contributing to this global outreach to feed the hungry children in Haiti. You will not be disappointed when you extend your " helping hand" in this endeavor.

                           ODE TO THE HAITIAN CHILDREN
The children are hungry, yet they keep trying to play
     to forget the deep pain that lingers day after day.
Will there be enough food for my family tonight?
      or will my empty stomach again have to give up that right?
Their country's been torn by many vicious turbulent "storms"
     that have demolished safety and hope in any predictable forms.
With the increase of violence and the threat of gang wars
     people flee to the mountains to see what else is in store.
To their surprise, tucked away from the chaos and clamour of big city life,
     lies a school where children find relief from their gut-wrenching strife.
And now I'm here to tell you, there's an oasis in the desert of your poor sin-ravaged land,
     where the children receive daily nutritious meals from a tender "helping hand".
For we have heard your story and we have felt your pain
     so we gather together in our Mighty Savior's Name.
His Name is  JESUS, the Christ, who is The Light for all to see,
     He's asked us to feed the hungry and take care of those in need.
So when we pack these lunches as He's asked  "His kids" to do,
     they are wrapped in prayers and passion by someone who cares for you.
Now when you fall asleep at night and your tummy has been fed
     when you wake up and face the day, there's some energy instead.
We wrap you tight in JESUS arms and send along this prayer,
     that you will meet Him in these meals, because you "know" HE cares.
