I know most of you have heard us talk about serving a meal in the dump.  This month I wanted to give you a few more details about what we do and how we minister in this area.

The city dump is where the local garbage men (horse/donkey pulled cart) pay to dump trash that they pick up in their neighborhoods. There are several people that live around the dump as well. Those that dump the garbage and live around the dump go through the trash to see if there are items they can use, sell or recycle.  Those who go through the garbage not only includes adults but also kids.  Once a month, we serve a meal to those working in the dump.  For some, this will be their only meal for the day.  They are very appreciative of the food.  Many times, we try to take native speakers with us to share the Gospel.  We want to meet not only the physical needs but also the spiritual needs.  Bibles and tracts seem to be as appreciated as much as the food.  Amongst all the dirt, trash, smoke and sometimes disgusting smell, there is always something beautiful to be seen.  Many times it’s the people and the relationships we have built there.  One time, a gentleman brought all the women serving the meal red roses. I have no idea where the roses came from, but it was a sweet reminder of how God sees beauty even where there is brokenness.
Serving at the dump has become a very special part of our ministry!  We appreciate those that donate money to supply the meal!
