A meal with hurricane survivors

Over the weekend my wife and I met a bunch of people from 5 households who make up a big extended family of hurricane survivors. They are staying at a hotel in our city until they can get apartments in the area. Tonight we had our small group families each bring a main dish for a big potluck. The families all came to our church building where they played basketball, jumped in bounce houses, ate a homecooked meal and "shopped" for free stuff in the "store" that our people have stocked with all kinds of necessities.

Our new friends were so appreciative. They could not stop thanking us for having them over.

The blessing was really all ours.
