Local FHFH - Farmers & Hunters Feeding the Hungry Chapter which serves Grant, Howard, Kosciusko, Miami, Tipton & Wabash Counties in Indiana

 

 

The Hard Facts About Hunger:

  • More than one-third (38%) of families leaving welfare reported that they ran out of food and did not have money for more. (Urban Institute - 2001)
  • Approximately 7 million different people receive assistance in any given week (America's Second Harvest - 2001)
  • 33.6 million people including almost 13 million children live in households that experience hunger or the risk of hunger. This represents approximately one in ten households in the United States (10.7 percent). (Bread for the World Institute - 2002)

FHFH works with Farmers and Hunters to supply meat to church pantries, church feeding ministries, Salvation Army, community food banks, emergency assistance programs, Rescue Missions, children's homes and other organizations. These organizations, in turn, supply meals and/or frozen meat to those in need of food in each community listed above.

Vicky Ishaq is a 26 year old young Pakistani man with a ministry to children. He loves the children he teaches and tries as much as he can to help them financially. Vicky works for his neighbor man cleaning his house for $5.00 a month and for the use of his computer in the evenings. Vicky's father is a mason and when he has work Vicky helps him.

Every penny Vicky gets goes to help his children (as that is what he calls them). He pays for all the books and paper and pencils they use in his Bible Study class which they have every day in the evenings. He also helps to pay for the orphans Christian school and rent for the room he uses to teach his Bible study classes in and tries to buy food for them at the same time trying to help his family.

This young man has a heart for the Lord and a love for others that doesn't quit. He lives to help the children.

I try to help him as much as I can by buying children's Christian books and sending them to him and by sending him what little amount of money once a month that I can. I just talked to him today and his brother and his family live in a Muslim neighbor and they were told to move and get out because they are Christian. Vicky wasn't sure where they would go but probably would move in with their parents. Vicky and his sister and his oldest brother already live at home. So the house is already crowded.

I met Vicky on line in a Christian chat room about a year ago and fell in love with him. He never once asked me for money the only thing he asked was if he could call me grandma and I have been grandma ever since.

He didn't even have a Bible and I sent him one and all he wants to do is teach the children about Jesus and loves the Lord with all his heart and do what he believes the Lord wants him to do.

Vicky hasn't been on line much this week and when I asked him why it was because he had been going door to door trying to raise some money to help with his children.

I am not asking for much but if the Lord would speak to your heart would you consider helping me by saving your pop can tabs so I could sell them for the aluminum and send the money to Vicky.


Thank you for listening and thank you for any pop can tabs you could save for me.
