“I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.” –Psalms 81:10

Our Daily Bread

In Matthew 6:11 Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” And it was not just for bread, the food. Bread was a powerful symbol of God’s provision for His people in the Old Testament. Bread was a staple in the diet back in Jesus’ time and it is a staple today. Some grocery store shelves have been completely cleared of bread as people have been stocking up on staples in recent weeks. So when my friend gave me a loaf of homemade whole wheat bread from her bread machine last week, I was overwhelmed with gratitude, not only for her extraordinary kindness, but also that my heavenly Father continues to make provision for my daily needs.

Leoni Meadows Reaches Out to Housebound Neighbors

One afternoon a week, Leoni Meadows food service director Ed Elsner makes bread for housebound people in nearby Grizzly Flats. So far, he’s given away more than 100 loaves. In early March, before Californians were ordered to shelter in place, the camp placed a large food order. When the scheduled group was unable to come, the camp donated all the perishable items to those in need through a local church. “The Leoni staff realize, now more than ever, how important it is to be a helping hand to our community,” said Executive Director Craig Heinrich.
