By Delbert Hayden – Pueblo, Colorado … After hearing the news of a fire destroying an apartment complex on August 4, along with the livelihood of many of their neighbors, Pueblo First Church members came to the rescue.
Joining forces with Southern Colorado Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster, the Pueblo First Adventist Community Services team, led by Delbert and Kathy Hayden, and the Angels of Kindness, Pueblo First’s homeless ministry, developed a plan to feed the nine families displaced by fire while their homes were rebuilt.
Church members cooked and delivered pre-packaged hot meals to the families every Saturday at the hotel where they were housed while waiting for their apartments to be rebuilt. These meals have included prepackaged salads and lasagna and supplement the box of food the families receive weekly.
