Review for Feed The Children, Inc., Oklahoma City, OK, USA
Resurrection Life Church has worked with Feed the Children for fifteen years and we have had many excellent experiences with this fine organization. If I had to pick one special event which they made possible, it would have to be what occurred after the Oklahoma City bombing.
Our church worked closely with all the affected families for many months and still maintain contact with a number of them.
Many families lost their children on that terrible day. The devestating effects of that tragedy ripped a huge hole in the hearts and souls of the families, to a point where most of them could not be around children because of their painful memories.
We decided that with your help, we would sponsor a special Christmas event for the poor children in the neighborhood. Along with the staff at Feed the Children, we decided to pass out food and presents to the children and invited the families who lost children in the bombing to come to the event for an evening of healing. Almost all the family members showed up, but with understandably guarded emotions.
We placed all the gifts along one wall seperated by age and gender. Then we placed long tables in front of the presents with an army of volunteers behind the tables and placed chairs in front of the tables where we had the family members sit and wait for the doors to open with the excited kids.
The Lord was present that evening as the children sat on the laps of the family members. After hugs and kisses were given as thank yous for the beautiful presents Feed the Children had donated, the family members allowed themselves to feel joy (many for the first time since April 19th.) So not only were hundreds of children blessed due to the generosity of Feed the Children, but many greiving victims were also.
This is just one of hundreds of stories we have about our experience with Feed the Children and the wonderful people who run the show in Oklahoma City and around the country.
