As part of the SPSP Mission of Growing Disciples of Jesus Christ and our Service Ministries, SPSP has been very active in an effort called There’s Hope for the Hungry (H4H). H4H is headquartered in Cumming, GA, and has the following Mission:
- H4H is a scripture-rooted, passion-filled ministry, founded in prayer and committed to evangelizing and feeding people who are in need. H4H will witness to the lost and feed those who are hungry by relieving human suffering and poverty worldwide in the name of Jesus Christ.
Below is information on the support H4H has provided since their beginning in 2004:
- People fed – 809,811
- Children fed – 220,228
- Senior adults fed – 120,046
- Pounds of food given-a-way – 6,724,415
H4H partners with churches that align with their mission and want to help those in need.
Since February, 2019, SPSP has partnered with H4H to provide an opportunity for people in need the 1st Tuesday of each month to receive food, conversation and prayer to ensure these guests know that God loves them and so do we. We are blessed with 30 truly dedicated and enthusiastic SPSP volunteers that make this a success each month. Below is a recap of SPSP H4H activities since February, 2019:
- Families served 276
- Total people covered 958
- Children 380
- Seniors listed 91
- First time guests 185
- Repeaters 51
- Food boxes given out 276
- Pounds of food delivered 6,700
- Professions of Faith 23
Our next H4H event will be Tuesday, December 3rd. We are honored to be part of this effort, should you wish to obtain information on how you might help, please e-mail Martha Davis or e-mail Merrilee Allen. This is a wonderful way to live our mission, and helps the volunteers experience first-hand and internalize what loving thy neighbor means.
