Meet John.  You don't have to be in his presence but a few minutes before his energy and bubbly personality put a smile on your face. We like to call it the Joy of the Lord, and it's infectious. John's happiness is evident as he gives of his time volunteering here at Joseph's Storehouse, but he will be the first to admit life wasn't always this good. There was a time in his life that he, too, needed benevolent assistance like we give to hundreds of families each month.  John first came to Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry over three years ago. Shortly after that he began volunteering to make a difference in the lives of others. Since that time his life has blossomed. He has a well-paying job that he loves and a nice car to drive, but he will also tell you that his new "family" here at Joseph's Storehouse is among the top of his list of blessings. We count him as one of our many blessings as well. John is just one example among many of lives that have been changed through the Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry.

Meet Steve.  He and his wife had been happily married for 16 years and attended church regularly.  Then his wife had a massive fatal heart attack in her sleep and his world changed forever.  Steve was mad at God. He lost his faith, quit going to church and began, as he calls it, "running with the devil." He turned to drugs and alcohol and ended up losing everything he ever had. He even wound up in jail. He had hit rock bottom.  After his release from jail, Steve had been sleeping in a tent for almost a month when someone told him about Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry.  When he came for food, he was given the opportunity to meet with a prayer counselor, and Steve met Bro. Leonard Diebold, the JSFM Ministry Director, for the first time. Steve said he was so impressed with Bro. Leonard because he talked to him like a man, understanding Steve's situation and not trying to force his faith on Steve. They talked for a couple of hours and Steve left with a lighter heart. He could hardly wait for the next month's food distribution so that he could meet with Bro. Leonard again, even waiting in a longer line just to pray with him.  Steve started attending church again and found not only peace, but a family here with Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry as well.  It has been almost six years since Steve first came to JSFM. He now has a great life, a beautiful wife, home and friends. "Life is good now," Steve says with a smile.  We are very thankful to have Steve as part of our JSFM family as a regular volunteer. He is a blessing!

Meet Shirley. She and her husband Brent have been volunteers here at Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry for many years now.  She tells everyone that will listen about the goodness of God and how thankful she is for all of her blessings. She attributes Brother Bob and Sister Peggy Evans, LOAE/JSFM founders, for teaching her about God's love and helping her to grow in the Lord. Shirley says she now knows how to stand on her faith for God's provision in her life. She praises God for the spiritual food that she's received as much as for the physical food. "If I hadn't started coming all those years ago, I hate to think of where I'd be today," she states emphatically.  Shirley wants to share her testimony with others so that they will be able to enjoy the benefits of the spiritual food as well. We praise God with her. She and Brent are blessings to us as well.
