This is how I felt when I had gone three days without food. “Will I survive?” This question lingered in my mind. Those times were uneasy. Said one of the beneficiaries of JFM.
Today our JFM took time to check on people once again without food, and we wanted to hear feedback on what people think about JFM. We had a deep conversation with old granny mothers of the Mukuuba landing site, and one of them said, ” I was afraid that I would end up in the statistics of the community as the one who had gone to bed without food, but thanks to you (JFM) you always hear the tears of the poor.
There has been a surge in the lack of food for these people despite living on the shores of a lake. Young and old both suffer the same, hunger doesn’t discriminate. Yet, these folks seem to know each other very well, and they uniquely treat JFM with warmth and they pray for JFM. “You (JFM) have been a mother and a father to us; we don’t know how life would be without you,” said granny Christine. What makes me so happy is that you don’t discriminate; you share equally. She added.
During my tour at the landing site, I met an elderly man who doubles as a chairman of the area. He expressed his gratitude to JFM for feeding his people tirelessly. “Thank you for not letting us be without food amidst a harsh economy.” When the gospel is preached softly, and gospel tracts are given with the food, the people remember that a loving person (Jesus) sent it. It’s easy to receive the word on a full tummy; the opposite is true when hungry.
