Mel Trotter Ministries feeds physical and spiritual hunger.

By November 25, 2004

USA (MNN) — Thanksgiving Day reminds Americans of the bounty they’re blessed with.
<>br>However, some Americans would have gone hungry today if not for the efforts of groups like Mel Trotter Ministries in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“The people that are coming in today cannot afford to sit down at a family gathering. Especially to have the type of turkey and all the trimmings that go with it that we are accustomed too. So what we try to do is to give them a portion of what that would be like,” says Tom Meyer with Mel Trotter.

He says thousands are being fed physically through their “Great Thanksgiving Day Banquet.” But they’ll also try to feed them spiritually.

“We want to see their lives changed. They have to know who God is, they have to know who Christ is and they have to see through your life. They have to see through the mission, that when they come in here, we’re concerned mostly about their spirituality. With spirituality there comes physical healing, there comes spiritual healing.”
