Yesterday, Mercy Chefs reached a major milestone...
Our team just provided the THREE-MILLIONTH meal in the history of Mercy Chefs!
What makes this milestone so astounding is that just last year, we served our two-millionth meal. It took over 10 years to serve our first million meals. Then, the pace of ministry accelerated and we served our next million meals in just three years. Over the past year, the pace has increased exponentially -- especially in the past few months. Yesterday, we served our 3 millionth meal.
So far this year, Mercy Chefs is providing nearly NINE TIMES the number meals every day as compared to just one year ago. That's a 900% increase on the number of people we are reaching, thanks to your prayers and partnership.
And the pace shows no signs of slowing down! Just this week, we officially launched our second "Farmers To Families" outreach, based on the Florida Panhandle and reaching to neighboring states. This means our pace could actually be increasing again by this time next week!
That's why I'm so grateful for the faithful partnership of dear friends like you. I launched Mercy Chefs following a simple direction from the Lord to "just go feed people." I had no idea how the provision would come for even the first meals, but through friends like you, God has provided every step of the way! Today, your prayers and your generous financial support is equipping Mercy Chefs to reach thousands of people every day.

P.S. In addition to this milestone, this has been yet another week of amazing outreach. By the end of this weekend, we will have served over 215,000 meals this week alone and that number will likely increase in the coming week as we launch our second "Farmers to Families" base of operations. We still need help from friends like you. Go here to help, and thanks in advance!
