When Jesus told his disciples to pray that “give us our daily bread,” he meant that God should provide food to his people daily. We have concluded that food is a significant factor in the family to the extent a father can leave home out of depression because there is no food at home; children can become thieves and go to the streets searching for food.
Misunderstandings in Africa and home breakups exist because of this food thing in many families. To families who suffer acute food insecurity automatically, there is no peace in that family. Acute food insecurity is when a person’s inability to consume adequate food puts their life or livelihood in immediate danger.
Reports show that men leave their homes and return late evening because they cannot withstand the pressure of a house without food. Women confirm that they live home alone because men fear shame. The impact of JFM has been most acute on the poorest families.
Thanks to JFM for the incredible job of uniting families through food and love. It is an honor to serve God’s people and create a bond out of it. It is such times that we speak to them about the gospel because our gospel is full of loving actions.
