Jesus Center Puts on a Feast for the Less Fortunate

For most North State residents Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family, friends, and eat a big meal. But for those less fortunate gobbling up a big dinner wouldn't be a reality without a
little generosity from strangers. Manuel Villarrial say's "it's
wonderful, it's beyond my expression. Without a place like this I don't
know what I would do."


This is the sixth year the Jesus Center has put on the event under Executive Director Bill Such, and he say's they couldn't pull it off without the community support. "It
leads to joy in my heart because I can see how people have a
relationship, even if it's only for a few hours on this day."


It took 100 volunteers, and donations from all over butte county to put this feast together. Jimmy Henson say's giving up his Wednesday
afternoon seemed like the least he could do. "It helps some people that
need it, and actually give a care and really get back to what they got,
and it gets emotional some times." Rye Sabral adds "I just started
getting chills, just seeing what was going on cause I've never
experienced a holiday down here...it's amazing."


Such say's this simple dinner really goes a long way. "It's a way of including people who are on the outside you may say of society into the national
celebration of what it means to be an American." According to Such the
Jesus Center feeds 200 people on an average day, but around 350 people
were fed Wednesday afternoon.

In times of trouble, may the LORD respond to your cry. May the God of Israel keep you safe from all harm. May He send you help from His sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem. May He remember all your gifts and look favorably on your burnt offerings. May He grant your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans. May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory, flying banners to honor our God. May the LORD answer all your prayers.
