Today members of both stakes met at 5 am to prepare breakfast and lunch for people in Crow Agency and Lodge Grass. We made 300+ sandwiches, using peanut butter and jam from the truck of supplies sent by Salt Lake, and also purchased supplies locally to make meat sandwiches, and provide milk, fresh fruit, chips, cookies, and rolls for dinner. At 4:30 pm another group met to get stew ready to send. After the food is prepared President Griffin and counterparts from the other stake deliver it. We are so thankful to those who came and helped. Many others volunteered, but were not needed this time. This food is being used to feed anyone in those communities in need of a meal, not just members. Many of you have asked where members from Lodge Grass and Crow Agency attended church---they are part of the Hardin Branch.
At this time, it is possible we will be preparing meals for the next several Mondays. We are only providing Monday's meals--other days are covered by other groups. If you can help prepare food at the Auto Auction, either around 5-6 am or 4-5 pm on Mondays, please contact me, either through email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or by phone (I am in Hilltop Ward), and I will add you to our list of future volunteers.
You have likely seen on the news how serious the flooding has been in Roundup. Tomorrow supplies will be taken into Roundup area by some of our stake brethren.
We encourage you to find ways to serve those who have been affected by the floods in your own ward, in our stake, and in our state. We appreciate all of the donated time and bedding we have received. Please, pray for those who have been affected by flooding. We will likely feel the effects of all this rain for some time.
