Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.
Isaiah 58:10, NLT
It all started with a sermon. Founding volunteers Bo Pyles and Libby Morris both heard the same
sermon preached in two different locations in 2010, and the message resonated. The call to go outside
the walls of the church and help people who genuinely need it spoke so loudly, that the only response
was Project 58:10.
We delivered our first bag in February of 2011. We wanted to do something locally because we saw a great need right in our own backyard. Isaiah 58:10 became our mission. This verse speaks to us on a higher level, and it explains what we want to do and what we're currently doing.
More than food is packed in these bags. Every bag is prayed over by our volunteers, and the power of prayer is what changes lives. We pray that every child receiving a bag is not only well fed, but that they know hope. The children we help don't know who the bags are from, but they do know that someone cares about them.
"I didn't know it was Project 58:10, I just knew that God had called me to do something at that sermon."
