There 's plenty of room at the table

Since the time of both sets of my grandparents we 've had the family tradition of feeding people, whoever came to the house and we are carrying it on. Visiting Christian friends, students (we 've had a ministry like the Inter Varsity Fellowship), relatives ,poor people, nobody can return hungry. We consider this our ministry and service.
I like cooking specially for others.These days Pas. S 's wife and daughter are away, so every evening I pack a tiffin (the British would know this term) for him. Just simple food...a vegetable stir fry with chapatis. i cooked jackfruit, bottle gourd,cottage cheese with chick peas and green peppers, ladyfinger, beans with potatoes. For Sunday lunch I sent him fried river fish fillets with rice and Dal, bread and yogurt. He is leaving on the 24th May so I will pack bread and potatoes for his train journey.
Here is a picture of our church family, visitors and non Christian friends enjoying a party after Christmas service on our porch.

New Year 's church cookout. Pas. S is cooking on a wood fire .
I hope the electricity and voltage problems won 't get in the way of my blogging.
This is just an extra bit . All you dog owners, my Sheeba is suffering from false pregnancy and she is lactating! Don 't know what to do.

What a wonderful ministry. Feeding people. I don't have any idea what many of those items are that you were feeding the people but I am sure that it was good.
As far as Sheba, I don't have any idea, I've never had that problem with any dog. Still praying for you!
