On an ordinary Tuesday night, Martin Missions had the honor to bless some very special people at Providence House. Providence House is a place in Denver where individuals can go to rehab from addiction. On a typical Tuesday night, a few of the residents cook dinner, everyone hurries in, grabs food, quickly eats, and a fast clean up of the kitchen before their Tuesday night meeting. We thought it would be special to create an elegant setting, cook a fabulous meal, and serve the residents like a fine dining experience. When we closed the doors to prepare the tables, word quickly got out that something different was going on that evening. We dressed up, set the tables, prepared the meal, and before the doors opened I, Wendy, had the opportunity to tell the residents exactly what was going to take place. I told them that we were there to serve them and show them just a fraction of the love the Lord has for them. I told them I only had one rule- They had to stay seated through out the whole meal to allow us to serve them. The residents were not accustomed to being served their dinner so it was fun to remind them.. "Please sit, allow me to serve you." The residents at Providence House thank you, our faithful monthly supporters, for providing this fancy occasion.
