Feeding their Spirits

<br>When times are tough, sometimes people aren't sure where to turn to take care of basic needs like food. A&nbsp;church in Holliday, however, is dedicated to being there for families during the hard times.

The Holliday Assembly of God Church is a fairly small congregation, only about 15 members, but the Church isn't letting its small size get in the way of its big mission.

Pastor Mike Wells and his church started The Harvest Food Ministry 18 months ago with one goal. Feed those in need.

"We try not only to give them physical food," said Wells, "we try to encourage them that the Lord is who we put our trust in, and we give Him back thanks and praise.

"It's not us, we're not to be lifted up," Wells continued, "but we lift up what he does."

What started with a closet and 32 2x4's, will soon occupy a brand new 3,200 square foot facility.

Even though the location is new, Wells said the mission is the same.

"We're not trying to require anybody go to church anywhere," he said, "we're just trying to help our community in Archer County, and just people that really need some help."

Wells said on average, he and his congregation help abour 75 families every month.

Once the new building is complete, he hopes he can better serve those families, and offer more than just food.

"I'm hoping that maybe we can set up where some agencies can come in, maybe like Workforce (Development) or different ones every so often to help people learn how they can get a job."

Wells said he's grateful for the community's help in getting this project off the ground, but like any man of God, he said he knows where most of his help comes from.

"If the Lord didn't make a way, we couldn't do this," explained Wells, "I'm not interested in bragging about what we do, it's just what God's doing and letting us be a part of."

Pastor Wells said he expects construction on Harvest Food Ministry's new building to last another 6-8 months at the most.
