At Manna Café, those who give often receive more and those who receive give more than they realize.

When the T’ferith Isreael group was cleaning up after they sponsored the meal on Wednesday, March 9, I told their leader, Goldie, “Thank you”. She responded, “We enjoy this. We believe in what you are doing and we like the way you do it”.

Ray, an OSU student who volunteered 30 hours as part of his course in Community Leadership, wrote in his Thank you note, “I appreciate the family environment. I believe everyone who attends, volunteers and guests, have a pleasant experience. I will take my Manna Café experience wherever I go.”

The mother of a volunteer liked what she has heard and sent a large donation.

One of the guests reported, “I feel there is a presence here.”

You have a chance to be part of this every Wednesday by coming at 4 pm or later and volunteering. Contact me to sign up!    —
