Missionary Rick Beck and a resident of the dump.
We just returned from our third day at the city dump. When we arrived, some men were playing with a ratty soccer ball. People began to line up up quickly and they reverently listened to Rachel give a devotion. Another led in prayer and we began feeding. A group of four and myself helped serve the food. Others passed out bags of water.
It rained hard last night so the smell at the dump was much stronger than yesterday. It was hard to walk without getting your shoes muddy. Today many thanked us and praised Jesus as the food was distributed.
We saw many of the same family members today that were there yesterday. We visited a couple of their homes. The mother who had a beautiful six month old little girl was living in a dryer box. The two children were standing inside while the mother was working outside. Justin said, people shouldn’t have to live like that! We have no idea how good we have it said another student.
