His Plans

With 3 kids 3 & under, I knew moving here that I wouldn’t be able to have a daily hand in a ministry. I struggled with that for a while, but kept hearing God remind me that he has everything under control. He reminds us in Jeremiah 29:11 that he knows the plans he has for us! Plans to prosper us and not to harm us. Some may read this verse and read that we won’t be poor, because God is going to make sure we have money! I read it and see that God will make us rich in heart, that he will always give us opportunities to see his goodness and his sovereignty!

Two weeks after we got here I was approached and asked to make lunch for the children at church each Sunday. It may seem to be such a small thing, but seeing the kids each Sunday with a hot meal after class is just as much a blessing for me as it is for them.

It costs only $25, which includes food, plates, forks, napkins, and supplies, to feed the 25-35 children at church each Sunday. If you would like to sponsor a Sunday meal for the children at the church in Santa Ana, please email jenhinesnextgen@gmail.com to find out more information.
