Students have been meeting throughout the summer in Omaha, and also in Washington County to be discipled and grow in their faith. And on Wednesday, July 25, a few of them gathered in downtown Omaha to help with a weekly lunch event provided for the homeless of Omaha.
The lines were long
and the plates were piled high
in downtown Omaha
as a few of our Cru students
from North High and Central High
helped a group serve lunch to
about 175 of Omaha's homeless.
We were touched to witness the
servant hearts of a generous couple
who prepare this bountiful lunch
every week of the year.
And thankful for a dear couple who
faithfully provide the worship music
to feed hungry souls.
Thankful for this eye-opening
experience and opportunity
for our students, and for us.
The summer is flying by, and schools will be starting up in just a few short weeks from now. Please pray for us as staff as we meet with our volunteers, and students leaders, making plans and praying for another school year. We're also finishing up with the Cru Summer emphasis, as well as welcoming back staff members Jake & Chelsea, and some of our students who went on a month-long mission to Tanzania, Africa, with other Cru students from across the U.S.
