The story of a food pantry


Part of the fun of the Annual Meeting is the people you run into. Late this afternoon I met Roy Guerrero, a member of First Baptist Church in Granite Shoals. Two years ago he and his wife started a food pantry at his church in wake of area flooding.

What began with two shelves of food has morphed over time into a force that provides hope to the more than 4,000 people the congregation feeds each month. This Saturday, the church will serve its first Thanksgiving meal to 1,200 people. As a result of its service spirit, people are being drawn to it and to Christ. Recently five people were baptized one Sunday. On another Sunday, five families joined the church.

Watch Roy share a bit about his ministry:
