Hot Meal Ministry - January 2014

January 27, 2014. It's the fourth Monday of the month once again, and Team OUMC gathers at the Orangethorpe Christian Church, down the street, to serve dinner, as a part of Hot Meal Ministry. This time 140 people came for dinner. We never know how many many people might show up, and this seemed like a small number compared to some nights when 200 or so folks come. Our friend Giovanni joined us and helped Roberto cook dinner. He also took a few photos, which you can see below.

witches We like to call Kathy and Connie, who show up around 7:00pm to help us clean up, the "good witches of the West". They are joined tonight by a third "witch", Donna, who is in the middle, and is about to go out and wield her broom.
