We Are Family

On April 9, the Five & Two Food Truck was invited to be a part of a literacy fair at Fortress Youth Development Center on the east side of Fort Worth.  Jesus asks us to constantly consider the question "Who is your neighbor?"  We love being able to respond to that question by taking our church into the community and meeting our neighbors.  The nature of the Five & Two Food Truck Ministry allows folks of all ages and abilities to share in the ministry of sharing a meal and creating community all over the city.

This weekend was special as the youth of AHUMC had an amazing retreat and were able to serve with the food truck as part of their weekend.  Words can't begin to describe how awesome our youth are.  They arrived and immediately took ownership of this mission. Over 120 kids and families came through the fair which celebrated literacy and the joy of reading with games and giving away 623 books!  

Our youth proved that we are all family by immediately becoming a part of this community celebration by being with the kids and serving food to all.  I am thankful to God for this group of young people and the adults who led them this weekend.  They all have a servant's heart that we could all learn from.

Thank a youth or youth leader when you see them, remember We Are Family!
