For when you saw me hungry, you fed me. When you found me thirsty, you gave me a drink. When I had no place to stay, you invited me in, and when I was poorly clothed, you covered me. When I was sick, you tenderly cared for me. And when I was in prison you visited me. Then the godly will answer him, “Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty and give you food and something to drink? When did we see you with no place to stay and invite you in? When did we see you poorly clothed and covered you? When did we see you sick and tenderly care for you, or in prison and visit you?” And the King will answer them, “Don’t you know? When you cared for one of the least of these, my little ones, my true brothers and sisters, you demonstrated love for me.” Matthew 25:40 (TPT)
Have you ever considered what the life of a fair worker is truly like? The average fair worker falls 250% below poverty level. Our church assists in a local ministry that has been serving the fair workers for over 30 years here at the South Florida Fair. This ministry has a team that lives 24/7 on the fairgrounds in their campers living amongst the fair workers sharing the gospel and the love of Jesus. They provide coffee, meals, clothing, bedding, haircuts, dental work, one on one discipleship and mentoring all at no cost. You can help in several ways! You can volunteer to serve a shift in the wagon serving coffee, make muffins, bring a small group out with crockpots full of food and serve it to the fair workers at dinner time. You could come help set up clothes in the clothing tent and help fair workers “shop for free clothes” while asking if you could pray for them. Perhaps evangelism is easy for you! You could come hang out and drink a cup of coffee and chat with the workers as they have breaks. Maybe you’re shy about evangelism but you love to cook! How about gathering a bunch of friends and serving a meal?! That frees our team up to evangelize!
We all know we are living through some crazy times. What we can be sure of is that we have a God that is Faithful and True and He is counting on us to share His love and message to His people. Let’s not waste this chance!! You are being presented with an opportunity to serve and share and pray! When we stand before Jesus , we want to be able to tell Jesus that YES we did this to and for Him!
