Christina and I have been in India for five days, travelling with our partners and friends, Randeep and Anu Mathews. For years I have wanted Christina to see some of the India that I love so much; until now, all she has seen are the slums and poor rural villages where we work. Over the past few days we have seen the remarkable Agra Red Fort, which was constructed in the 16th and 17th century by the Mogul rulers.

Since that time we have been able to provide about 400,000 meals around the developing world––in Haiti, Central America, Africa, India, the Philippines and Southeast Asia. Over these past six years, we have received Isaiah 58 donations from children, school classes, home groups, individuals, and families. Each gift has been received with both gratitude and excitement, knowing that Jesus said, “For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat.” (Mt 25:35)
