Day two: Revival unto Holiness. Days are planned around 3 services with breaks for lunch and dinner. We will assist them with serving the meals….
Lunch Break happens at 1:30pm and the people lined up in rows. We help feed the multitude of people ~ 2000+. Lunch menu was: Rice, vegetable curry, samba, all served on a banana leaf. Note: Banana leafs have a natural anti bacterial property, they are freshly removed from the tree, rinsed and then used as the disposable plate. (Nice to know what to use in a pinch!)
It is a well orchestrated event. Distribution of the food started with the rice. We served the rice first, (4 scoops of rice for the adults, 1 or 2 for the children), followed by the Curry (2 or 3 Scoops for Adults, 1 or 2 for the Children), then ending with as much Samba,(a broth type soup with vegetables), as they wanted. I discovered that us Americans are not as fast as the Indians. To feed 2000+ people in under an hour you have to move. It was wonderful to serve the people.
Pastor John shared that these people had never had someone “white” wait on them before in their lives. That it was something that they would remember for the rest of their lives. In the caste system, these people were a part of the backward caste, so nobody waits on them. Here we were, breaking caste, waiting on them. Glory to God!!!! The walls of separation were coming down. A direct answer to our prayers Eph 2:4. Thank you Jesus!!
