Four days a week in Hutchinson, Kansas a miracle happens: 200-300 people eat a hot meal. The miracle worker is an unassuming woman named Stanley M. who operates the Christian Soup Ministry. For close to 20 years she's never missed a scheduled day, never run out of food, never turned anyone away...and never accepted so much as a penny of government assistance.
Some days there's no group scheduled to cook (community groups typically provide meals for about 15 days each month). Some days there's not enough food in the pantry to prepare a meal in the needed quantities. Those are the days when the miracles happen. A group of cross country cyclists rides up and offers to help. A couple over-orders from their wedding reception and makes a donation. A grocery donates 500 pounds of fresh produce that would otherwise be thrown away.
Regardless of the thorny conditions she knows exist from the night before, Stanley leaves her house and shows up at the appointed time, believing...knowing that the Lord will provide. Faith is her value—and she does pass it on.
