Fire In The Hole

Fire In The Hole

“God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessings.” ~ 1 Peter 4:10 (Living Bible)


I still smile when I hear the story about the game warden who got a quick lesson on fishing. It seems he noticed how one guy caught more fish than anyone else. Whereas other fishermen would only catch three or four a day, Jim would come off the lake with a boat full.


Wanting to know his secret, the fisherman invited the game warden to accompany him and observe. So, the next morning the two met and took off in Jim’s boat. When they got to the middle of the lake, they stopped the boat. Jim’s approach was simple. He took out a stick of dynamite, lit it, and threw it in the air. The explosion rocked the lake with such a force that dead fish immediately began to surface and Jim took out a net and started scooping them up. When he recovered from the shock, the game warden began yelling. “You can’t do that, I’ll put you in jail. You’ll pay every fine there is in the book!” Meanwhile, Jim set his net down and took out another stick of dynamite and tossed it in the lap of the game warden. Then he said, “Are you going to sit there all day complaining or are you going to fish?” In a matter of seconds, the warden went from being an observer to a participant.


That’s like a day at Bread of Life. Things are quiet and then someone throws a stick of dynamite in our lap, and the excitement begins. Like a landslide, unforeseen challenges tumble upon us without warning. Pow! All of a sudden we’re hurled into the air of uncertainty, and only by God’s grace, we consistently land on our feet. Like the game warden, why not join us and become a participant rather than an observer.

News At The Bread

An International Impact!


This past week we had a special visitor at Bread of Life! Rio came all the way from Osaka Japan to observe the Rescue Mission in action.  He toured our facilities, worked in the pantry, helped in the thrift store, stayed overnight in the dorms, ate dinner with our guests, and attended the church services here at Bread of Life.Rio came to the States through a sponsorship with his church in hopes of helping start a similar Rescue Mission there in Japan. It’s exciting to see how God is using BOL to inspire and impact people around the world!
