As the new Volunteer Coordinator for ACFS I feel so privileged being a part of the miracle that happens there. I have often heard Gene Rogers talk about how it all miraculously comes together from the food donations made, the volunteers who deliver the food, the volunteers who prep the portions, to the clients who receive the food. It really is miracle to see how it all comes together, and how the program just keeps expanding beyond families, but is also a blessing for school children to be a part of the weekend Backpack Program. The whole vision that Jim and Linda Jones had in 2011 was the beginning of the miracle, and it all points to Jesus. Jesus was intentional to involve others in his miracles. When he fed the crowd of more than 5,000 with only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish that were generously donated by a young boy, Jesus included his disciples in the distribution. Jesus even gave others the opportunity to roll the stone from the grave tomb where Lazarus laid dead for 4 days before commanding Lazarus to rise up and walk out of the tomb! And if that wasn't enough, when Lazarus walked out alive, Jesus gave even more people an opportunity to remove the grave clothes from Lazarus body so they could all see that what Jesus says, HAPPENS! All miracles give birth to hope, a living hope, and Alabama Childhood Food Solutions is not only a resource that's helpful, but it's hopeful. And being a small part of the miracle fills my well tank to the brim.
