Shout out to the St. Louis Rams for awarding FEED MY PEEPS with the Community Quarterback Award. We’re so humble and grateful for the opportunity to highlight our little charity.  Thank you St. Lou for all the votes and well wishes.  Oh my $5,000 just fell from the sky.  We’re able to serve those in need because you believe in giving back to the community.

 

Divine Appointment

Cynthia

Let me share my divine appointment!  I saw a senior lady being rude and disrespectful to a beautiful lady over a wheelchair at the airport.  We had just gotten off a small plane.  We were standing in the rain and cold on the tarmac.  The beautiful lady had 17 minutes to make it to another terminal for her connecting flight to Dubai.  The airline staff  members were not helping her.  I got mad watching all of this unfold.

God laid on my heart to help.  I grabbed another wheelchair and my beautiful new friend and I took off running.  I’m sure we looked crazy running through several terminals and the train.  I kept assuring her that I work for God.  Jesus take our wheel (wheelchair).

We didn’t make her connecting flight but we did have an appointment.  My friend’s name is Cynthia and she’s from Sri Lanka.  She stayed overnight and made her trip home the next night.  We had the privilege of sharing lunch and fellowship with Cynthia.  She had a suitcase full of food for the poor children of her village.  Cynthia was returning to her country.  Her beloved daughter had passed along with her loving husband so Cynthia was going home to an empty house.  God has her back and connects Cynthia with loving friends.

Why would I run through a large airport pushing a stranger from Sri Lanka?  God is just that cool if you allow his divine appointment to happen.  I feed peeps so I ask God if FEED MY PEEPS will serve in Sri Lanka some day.

I love you my new friend Cynthia and pray for your traveling mercies.

Puppy Love Therapy

Puppy Love on the streets of St. Lou.

Emily and Wayne have joined FEED MY PEEPS in weekly Saturday Outreach serving our homeless friends on the streets of St. Lou.  Emily and Wayne own Pamper Your Pooch which is a dog grooming business in South City. They have a heart for animals and know that puppy therapy is pure unconditional love.  We see homeless kids that should be playing in their own yard; however, due to unknown circumstances are on the streets with a parent.  Emily and Wayne bring their dog Joey along which brings an immediate smile.

Thank you Emily and Wayne for helping us in ministry as we collectively help to make a difference to those in need.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015!!!

This past year has exceeded our expectations.  We thought feeding peeps was the calling.  BAM we’ve been blessed with toys, books, shoes, clothes, household items and furniture.  One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!  We’re able to host monthly outreach events in neglected communities with your generosity.

The culinary community continues to support us with nutritious food made from scratch.  Trader Joe’s and Gordon Food Service provides us with more fresh produce, bread, dairy, protein and flowers.  We’re able to serve foster families, soup kitchens, homeless camps, troubled teens, families with limited resources and nuns and priests with this abundant surplus.

Washington University School of Law assisted FEED MY PEEPS in 2014 with our application for 501(c)3 non profit status.  We received our charitable organization stamp of approval from Mr. IRS in less than seven weeks.  God directed that application for this we know!

We launched our new website www.feedmypeeps.org which allows us to share our testimony with others.  We’re grateful for the grant money and financial favor that allows us to operate with 100% of your donation going toward ministry needs.  Our volunteers rock as they serve those in need without pay.

2014 was great and God’s given us a snapshot of 2015.  Are you ready to MAKE A DIFFERENCE as we serve those in need?

Happy New Year from our home to yours!

Jaxs and Tracey
