I have personally been involved in the food distribution of Harvest Ministries of Roswell and Pastor Rubie now for many years and can say without a doubt that I have witnessed tens of thousands of people being helped with food, provision, blankets, and other miscellaneous needs. Harvest Ministries of Roswell is the one of the most giving organizations in helping hurting people I have ever seen in my life. I recommend them for the highest award you might give out. Robin A.

Harvest Ministries of Roswell is a compassionate, caring organization, which helps people with food, various counseling needs and other vital assistance, including employment assistance. They started out by providing winter coats and blankets and have grown into a large non-profit organization, helping thousands of people, in many counties of SE New Mexico.

Harvest Ministries is such a vital ministry in our community. The needs being met here are not just physical hunger, but spiritual hunger and emotional hunger as well. I want to express that I have not just been a volunteer with Harvest before, but I have been blessed by this ministry in a time of need for my own family. We have all experienced times of struggle in our lives when we just needed someone to come along side of us to lend their arms of love to help and encourage us onward. I thank God for this ministry and its volunteers who strive to show the love of Jesus to all who walk through their doors!

Harvest Ministries is one of those ministries where there is more than meets the eye. Although it is primarily concerned with meeting people's phyiscal needs by providing food, it also serves to meet people's emotional and spiritual needs as well. Harvest volunteers seek to ministry the love the Jesus to its client's above all things. They desire not only to meet people's physical needs with food, but their emotional need that all people have to be loved. They try to show each and every client that no matter their need, Jesus loves and cares for them, and so do the people of Harvest Ministries. Harvest also tries to meet the spiritual needs of people by ministering the message of forgiveness of sin by the sacrifice and blood of Jesus Christ on their behalf. The volunteers seek to help people find forgiveness and healing in Jesus and a relationship with the Creator that made and gave His Son to redeem them. The Harvest Center is amazingly designed to meet the needs of its clients and the staff and volunteers are trained well to support its individual clients needs.

For those families and individuals in our area who are suffering from devastating setbacks or are just struggling to survive, Harvest Ministries has provided wise counsel, nutritious food assistance, and an opportunity to plug into the life-changing healing and hope to be found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I started volunteering at Harvest Ministries about 7 years ago and have had many enriching and encouraging encounters with the precious people Harvest ministers to on a daily basis. I have had the privilege of sorting coats and doing laundry for our homeless population and I helped with the interior planning and design of our new Ministry Center in 2010. I have worked with the Pantry Ladies filling grocery bags for our clients who walk in the front door, and I've worked with the freight staff to process donated food and dispense it to the 18 Partner Agencies who make it possible for more of our struggling families, children, youth, homeless, senior citizens, and veterans to be reached with nutritious food choices. Harvest is makiing a huge difference!

My experience at Harvest Ministry has been very rewarding. I feel we're meeting a real and vital need of our less fortunate neighbors. I also find the folks I work with are good humored, very kind and a joy to share time with. God bless this community outreach.

As a local pastor in Roswell, NM I have seen first hand the impact that Harvest Ministries makes to people each and every day. Not only to those who enter the doors of Harvest Ministries each week, but have seen the impact to local ministries in Roswell who are supported by and partner with Harvest Ministries to meet the needs of hungry, desperate, and hurting people. Also each time I am able to volunteer or be a part of a volunteer opportunity, I am always blessed and impressed with how organized each department of the ministry is conducted. Harvest Ministries is a true reflection of Matthew 25: 37 - 40

I have volunteered for Harvest Ministries for 3 years and have found this ministry to one of great importance in Roswell and surrounding communities! Pastor Rubie has instilled in his volunteers and each person who enters the doors the importance of meeting people's physical needs with food, their emotional needs with encouragement, and their spiritual needs with prayers and scripture. Pastor Rubie goes the extra mile in each contact he has, developing Harvest to be a well oiled ministry.

They helped more people than I ever imagined. When I toured the facility I was impressed with how organized everything was from the freezers to the details that are taken during client interviews. I personally saw the real care the receptionist and interviewer and director took with each client. All treated with respect and as unique individuals in unique predicaments. They do not see this as a cookie cutter operation where a client is a number, but as a way to come alongside families each in unique situations and give them the hand up that they need to press on.
