BVCC to the Rescue!

God often acts in amazingly coordinated ways. Such was certainly the case last week when Missions Coordinator, Nancy Boyer authorized me to empty the contents of the food wagon and transport them to the Salvation Army’s food pantry in Olathe (which serves all of Johnson County).

I had not had the opportunity to comply with Nancy’s request before I received an urgent e-mail from SA Olathe Corps Community Resources Coordinator Mindia McManness, indicating an emergency status at the SA food pantry. "It was brought to my attention that our food pantry is so low, this issue cannot wait for me to be creative," said McManness, attaching a list of food items needed immediately, if not sooner.

Loading the contents of the BVCC food wagon into my car, I noticed that virtually every item requested by McManness was included in the food gifts given by BVCC’s congregation.

"It is amazing to me to see how quickly the shelves are emptied," added McManness.  "The need is so great it is overwhelming." Remember in the movies when the cavalry always arrived at just the nick of time? "We greatly appreciate everything Blue Valley Christian Church folks do for us," concluded McManness. "We can always depend upon them to respond!"
